  • Boom overlapping increases boom structural rigidity.
  • Finite element analysis and strain gauging-ensures maximum strength in high-stress areas.
  • Single side plates ensure high strength and rigidity at the core of the machine.
  • Hydraulic extension rams with no chains, better suited for heavy-duty bucket applications.
  • The fully welded one-piece chassis maximizes strength while minimizing weight.
  • The lift, tilt, and extension rams are held in place by keyhole castings for even greater structural integrity.
