  • 100 ton gantry (lifting on top of the boom) capacity
  • 50 ton forklift capacity at 24″ load center
  • Load Management system keeps the boom level at all times
  • Digital Display panel keeps the operator well informed of the load weight, boom, and counter-weight positions.
  • Automatic Overload Shutoff System does not permit overloading condition
  • Oscillating rear-end keeps all the wheels on the ground when the floor is uneven
  • PosiDrive, when engaged, gives power to all the drive wheels for best traction
  • Inching Clutch permits precise travel control
