Altec offers both telescoping and articulating (knuckle boom) cranes. Telescopic and articulating cranes offer strategic advantages based on their intended use. Telescopic boom truck cranes are available with sheave heights ranging from 80 to 207 feet (24.4 m to 63.1 m) and load ratings from 18 to 45 ton (16.3 t to 40.8 t). These truck mounted cranes can be used for multiple work applications, such as electric line maintenance and construction, transmission and distribution, tree trimming and other related uses. Articulating cranes, which are also known as knuckle boom cranes, are designed to be lightweight and highly maneuverable for maximum payload while working in tight spaces.
Altec Telescopic Boom Truck Cranes are available direct from our factory. Factory direct sales means you are working directly with the manufacturer of your equipment in all aspects of the product. From your dedicated sales manager, to the talented design engineers, to the service specialists — we will be with you every step of the way. Upon completion, Altec tests the unit thoroughly to ensure the crane meets all safety requirements. All Altec Boom Truck Cranes comply with ASME B30.5.
Altec also offers our customers the full line of articulating cranes with competitive features and specifications. Offering a vast assortment of configurations, articulating cranes can be used in a variety of work applications.
