We are thrilled to announce that the I211 has been selected for Lift and Access magazine’s LLEAP Award for Most Innovative Truck Mounted Aerial this year!

This year’s Leadership in Lifting Equipment and Aerial Platforms (LLEAP) Awards are recognizing the innovative equipment, support products, and services introduced during the last 24 months. 

The I211 is actually five machines in one. It starts as a 190’ telescopic material handling aerial with a self-leveling, rotating work platform. Users can quickly change configurations and the machine can become either a 211’ articulating 500kV rated Category A insulated aerial or 211’ articulating construction aerial. The I211 also can hyper-articulate to allow it to work under and between powerline phases or in substations. It can also be equipped with main boom material handling for the ultimate in versatility. This multifunctionality dramatically increases the utilization of the machine and significantly reduces the cost of ownership. Learn more.

Like the I211, all of our HiReach, Digger Derrick and Boom Truck crane products feature multifunction versatility to help you do more with your machine.    

The LLEAP judging panel is made up of industry experts involved in the operation, rental, sale, and servicing of aerial platforms and lifting equipment. In evaluating each entry, the judges look for innovative features and technology; perceived value; productivity for owners and users; and overall benefit to the industry, owners, and users.

Carbon monoxide is called the “silent killer” because it’s colorless, odorless, tasteless, and can’t be detected by humans without the help of an alarm or detector. 

As the weather gets colder,  now is the time to make sure you are protected in the workplace. If you suspect CO poisoning, taking these prompt actions can help save a life:

  • Ensure working CO alarms and test them monthly.
  • Move the victim immediately to fresh air in an open area.
  • Call 911 for medical attention or assistance.
  • Administer 100 percent oxygen using a tight fitting mask if the victim is breathing.
  • Administer CPR if the victim has stopped breathing.
