Greater horizontal outreach can be acquired utilizing telescopic booms rather than any other kind of aerial platform. These machines are great for locations which provide limited access in construction and industrial situations.
The capacities of CAT's telescopic booms range from 9.65 meters or 31 feet 8 inches to 80 feet and 24.38 meters. These units offer working height up to 14.20 meters or 46 feet to 40.15 meters or 131 feet 2 inches. Telescopic boom nomenclature usually includes a reference to the boom's platform height in order to identify the equipment's capacity.
Telescopic booms are extremely productive on the worksite because they offer the torque, traction and speed needed to get the job completed. Though the machines are made huge enough to reach higher, they are still compact enough to fit great in confined areas. The positive traction system and the full-time oscillating axle provided by the rough-terrain units enable the rugged jobsites to be handled with precision and ease. Additionally, several specialized models provide extendable axles which offer stability and retract for easy transportation. There are various diesel engine choices available on the market as well.
