These models offer working height up to 46 feet or 14.20 meters to 40.15 meters or 131 feet 2 inches. Telescopic boom nomenclature normally includes a reference to the platform height of the boom in order to know the capacity of the machine.
Telescopic booms are really productive on the worksite since they offer the traction, speed and torque required to get the job completed. Even though the machinery are built big enough to reach higher, they are still compact enough to fit great within confined spaces.
