Construction Equipment Guide once named Elliott’s rubber-tracked 34127R boom truck one of the top 100 lifting and material handling products out there. And for good reason. 

Mounted on a 275-horsepower 15SXW-HF PowerTraxx vehicle, the 34127R maneuvers on two sets of 40” wide D-dent rubber tracks with steel grousers and features variable speed, and hydrostatic drive. 

In addition to cranes like the 34127, we also can mount digger derricks, E-Series aerials, and other equipment to ensure crews have access wherever they need to go.

Safety Reminder

Nation Safety Month: June

With June being National Safety Month, we’re sharing about how new safety technologies can help eliminate, substitute or engineer out potential hazards. The National Safety Council has outlined the top 18 hazardous situations as well as their relevant technology solutions.

Here are just a few:

Work at Height

Work at height is when a worker is exposed to falling 4-6 feet or more from an unprotected edge where a person could potentially fall, injure or kill themselves. Working at height dangers may include objects falling from a height, falls from the same height, or the sudden arrest of a lifeline.

Learn more about work at height risks and solutions.

Construction, Installation

Examples of hazards involved in this work include falls, electrical hazards, struck-by incidents, transportation-related risks, and more.
