Altec Opens New Service Center in Salt Lake City , Utah

Altec has announced the opening of a new service center in Salt Lake City to meet the needs of customers in Utah and the surrounding region. The facility was acquired from Utility Equipment Specialists, an Altec Independent Service Provider. The service center will continue to provide a complete range of repair and maintenance work as well as Altec's fully comprehensive preventative maintenance inspections. In addition to unit remounts and rebuilds, Altec's new Utah Service Center has the capacity to repair all hydraulic components including hydraulic actuators and tools as well as gear boxes, motors, winches and rotary joints. The 16,000 square foot building is located on three acres and houses eight service bays. Geographically located between Altec's Colorado and Northern California Service Centers, the facility will complement Altec's Mobile Service Technicians positioned in the Salt Lake City region and provide the capability to handle more extensive work truck repairs.

Altec, Inc. Launches AN67-E100 and AN67E-E100 Aerial Devices

Altec, Inc. launched 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. The 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. The new elevator design features high-tensile steel and a modern box-boom design for improved strength-to-weight ratio. Depending on configuration, 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. 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. 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.
