GARNER, Iowa (Sept. 28, 2015) — Service truck maker Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT) has released a new Dominator III mechanics body design to accommodate the IMT model 12000 telescopic crane without a front stabilizer for customers that do not require 100 percent lift capacity in all load zones.
“Since its release, the IMT Dominator III mechanics truck has been serving a unique niche customer with mid-range lifting needs,” said Jim Hasty, IMT general manager. “Our new body design is the result of listening to our customers' needs, and demonstrates our unyielding commitment to providing reliable and durable products that help them get their work done.”
The new Dominator III body will be available in both 11- and 14-foot lengths, replacing the existing 13-foot version. With two side pack configurations for each body length — a right front raised with the left side all raised and an all raised version — customers have four configuration options to choose from, according to IMT, an Oshkosh Corp. company.
The Dominator III model is designed for customers needing more lifting capacity than the Dominator II vehicle's 10,000-pound maximum, but do not require the 14,000-pound capacity of the Dominator IV mechanics truck. The new unit is designed specifically to support the IMT 12000 telescopic crane, which provides up to 30 feet of reach and a Penta Boom design. With a flat top that eliminates stress concentrations inherent with certain boom designs and a half hex that controls tracking at long reaches, the five-sided boom offers premium strength and durability, IMT said.
Standard features of the IMT 12000 telescopic crane include:
• Ten degrees of negative boom angle, providing added versatility and allowing the crane to be reached more easily from ground level;
• A fully proportional piston grip radio remote control offering traditional fit and operation;
• LED overload indicator lights on the remote control handle that alert the operator when the crane is approaching overload condition and in overload;
• A flip sheave boom tip for added lift height in tight quarters;
• A planetary winch that allows for faster hoisting and lowering speeds and smoother overall operation; and
• Patented boom hook stow that allows the boom hook to be stowed more easily and faster.
