Altec Cranes

 

altec-cranesRiding seat crane models from Altec Industries feature a new tilt cab option that allows the operator to adjust the angle of the cab with hydraulic power. Included are the truck-mounted and track carrier AC38-127S models. The truck-mounted AC23-95B from Altec features out-and-down outriggers to provide increased productivity during setup in confined areas with short-span, mid-span and full-span load charts.

Designed and built with integral safety features to help comply with new standards, Altec cranes include interlocks to help prevent boom operation prior to deploying the outriggers and outrigger controls at ground level, located within view of the shoes to help prevent crush hazards. Other safety features of the company’s models include winch drum rotation indicators that signal the operator of winch drum motion and speed, area protection in the load moment indicator that helps warn of potential overhead hazards, and load moment indicators programmed with a 50 percent de-rate for personnel handling with pin-on platforms.

Golight HID Stryker

golight
In response to consumer demand, Golight Inc., the leader in remote-control searchlights, has introduced the High Intensity Discharge (HID) Stryker. The new HID Stryker offers Golight users tremendous intensity with minimal strain on the vehicle’s electrical system. By comparison, the HID upgrade more than triples the light output of its incandescent counterpart. Renowned for its beam precision, Golight has been able to generate a peak beam intensity of 650,000 candelas by incorporating an internally-ballasted HID bulb and updated reflector into the Stryker remote-control light housing, and achieve a maximum beam distance of more than one mile. Besides increased intensity, the HID system emits light at significantly greater color temperature – 4100 k – which creates a whiter light comparable to daylight. After an initial startup surge, the HID Stryker requires only 3.5 amps for continuous operation. The unit reaches peak output in less than 10 seconds and reaches 70 percent capacity in just four seconds. The filament-free bulb also has durability advantages, with a rated life of greater than 3,000 hours. www.golight.com
