M87 HiReach

This month’s featured product is Elliott’s M87 HiReach, first introduced in 2021. It mounts on a lightweight chassis, allowing the machine to be driven by operators without a CDL. In addition, the M87 can be equipped with material handling at both the main boom and in the platform, significantly increasing the flexibility of the machine. 

The M87 offers greater performance, less weight, better ergonomics, and easier serviceability than anything else in its class and allows for a wide range of setup configurations.

Additional key features of the M87 include: 

  • 87-foot working height 
  • 77 feet of side reach
  • 2,000 lb. main boom material handling capacity
  • 600 lb. platform capacity
  • Stow & Go platform jib with unrestricted 500 lb. capacity
  • Dynasmooth electric over hydraulic remote controls
  • 180-degree platform rotation
  • QuickClip internal cable carrier improves serviceability    
  • Mounts on non-CDL chassis
  • ANSI A92.2 aerial work platform in all modes of operation

The M87 is ideal for a wide range of applications, including sign and lighting, tower maintenance, and general facility maintenance. Backed by a lifetime structural warranty!

    Did you know?

    Get the most bang out of your buck by strategizing when you turn in your Elliott for a newer machine. Typically, for the optimal ownership experience, we recommend our customers turn in their Elliotts for a new one at around the six to seven-year point.

    Why? Because that’s when the chassis becomes more unpredictable in terms of service, and it’s also a good resale point in terms of value. We can get you on a long-term fixed payment plan that will allow you to trade in your older machine now and avoid unplanned downtime and maintenance fees.

    Safety Reminder

    Wear Your PPE

    When it comes to staying safe on the job site, it’s not enough to just set up your machine and surroundings properly. You also need to ensure you have your PPE.

    “PPE” is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. PPE may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, coveralls, vests, and full bodysuits.

    PPE is addressed in specific OSHA standards for general industry, maritime, and construction.
