IMT Features Award-Winning Lightweight Service Truck Package at Work Truck Week 2021March 12, 2021
GARNER, Iowa (March 12, 2021) –
Iowa Mold Tooling Co., Inc. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation company (NYSE:OSK), is pleased to showcase its new IMT® 6000 series hydraulic telescopic crane and Dominator® I mechanics truck package during the virtual Work Truck Week 2021. The package was designed based on customer feedback and chosen as one of the Construction Equipment Top 100 New Products in 2020.
“IMT invests in its voice of customer research to drive new product development that helps increase productivity. Customers asked for increased payload and the new lightweight package is the result.” said Justin Anderson, IMT marketing representative. “We designed the 6000 series crane to be lighter than ever, which helps increase the payload capability of our Dominator I mechanics truck package by approximately 1,000 lbs.”
Designed to reduce weight and offer the ability to carry more payload without sacrificing performance, the new 6000 series crane is 30 percent lighter than before. Developed based on voice of customer feedback, the redesigned crane has a maximum lift rating of 6,000 lbs., and features corrosion-resistant components to help mitigate rust. A newly redesigned boom tip offers outstanding precision and maneuverability.
“Reducing the weight and incorporating features that extend the life of the crane ensures our customers benefit from the increased payload capability for years to come,” said Anderson.
The 6000 series crane was built to mount on a newly enhanced IMT Dominator I service truck. The new Dominator package comes with payload increasing options such as a compact work bench bumper and a redesigned lightweight customizable bolt bin offering. It’s also available with the new CAS40PL air compressor. The new compressor features an aluminum canopy and air-end, which reduces its weight more than 40 percent over the previous model.
Virtual Work Truck Week 2021 attendees can see images of the new 6000 series crane, CAS40PL and lightweight Dominator I mounted on a class 5 chassis in IMT’s virtual booth.
