Construction equipment: Altec Inc. launches the AN67-E100 and AN67E-E100 aerial devices to offer customers increased safety and job site efficiency. These new units will be added to the Global Rental fleet this fall and are now available to order.

“We worked directly with customers and took a hard look at all aspects of this machine; the aerial device, the elevator and the overall layout and chassis interface,” says Dustin Yost, Altec market manager. “Every feature designed into this package directly aligns with what linemen and fleet managers thought most important: safety, productivity, reliability and operator convenience.”

Advanced Platform
The industry leading AN67-E100 and AN67E-E100 incorporate the field-proven design and reliability of Altec’s AA/AN Series Aerial Devices into a 100-foot total platform height elevator for transmission applications. A high-flow hydraulic system and new independent controller for the elevator provide speed and multi-function capability. Standard platform rotator, available extended side reach and material handling jib offer more options to position the platform and get tools and materials to height. By reducing time required for setup and positioning, a crew’s productivity is greatly improved.

Enhanced Elevator
The new elevator design features high-tensile steel and a modern box-boom design for improved strength-to-weight ratio. “Depending on configuration, our new double elevator allows up to 3,900 pounds of total payload on a 58,000 pound GVWR all-wheel drive chassis. Optimizing payload allows crews to carry more materials, tools and accessories on the truck, which is key to the overall efficiency of the job,” says Yost.

A service-driven design offers new features, including additional larger access holes and covers, accessible grease points and hydraulic hoses, redesigned pins and fasteners, hydraulic hose bulkheads, and hydraulic diagnostic ports. These features simplify preventative maintenance and allow more efficient troubleshooting and repairs, reducing both downtime and operating costs.

Functional Layout
Every finishing detail of the unit, body and chassis layout is designed with safety and efficiency in mind. The extended reach lower boom (AN67E-E100 only) puts the platform directly on the ground, providing the safest method for linemen to enter. An automatic upper boom stow latch eliminates the need to climb up the truck to secure the boom for road travel. The ergonomic lower control station provides excellent line-of-sight to the platform and convenient access to the truck bed. Available upper boom access walkway allows safe inspection of the upper boom fiberglass for Category A bare hand applications. This attention to safe ingress/egress greatly reduces slip, trip and fall hazards, providing a more safe and productive job site.

Altec is a leading equipment and service provider for the electric utility, lights and signs, telecommunications, contractor, and tree care markets. The company provides products and services in more than 100 countries throughout the world.
