Altec, Inc. Key Developments

Altec, Inc. Launches AN67-E100 and AN67E-E100 Aerial Devices

Altec, Inc. launched the AN67-E100 and AN67E-E100 aerial devices to offer customers increased safety and job site efficiency. These new units will be added to the Global Rental fleet this fall, and are now available to order. The AN67-E100 and AN67E-E100 incorporate the field-proven design and reliability of Altec’s AA/AN Series Aerial Devices into a 100-foot total platform height elevator for transmission applications. A high-flow hydraulic system and new independent controller for the elevator provide speed and multi-function capability. Standard platform rotator, available extended side reach and material handling jib offer more options to position the platform and get tools and materials to height. By reducing time required for setup and positioning, a crew’s productivity is greatly improved. The new elevator design features high-tensile steel and a modern box-boom design for improved strength-to-weight ratio. Depending on configuration, new double elevator allows up to 3,900 pounds of total payload on a 58,000 pound GVWR all-wheel drive chassis. Optimizing payload allows crews to carry more materials, tools and accessories on the truck, which is key to the overall efficiency of the job. A service-driven design offers new features, including additional larger access holes and covers, accessible grease points and hydraulic hoses, redesigned pins and fasteners, hydraulic hose bulkheads, and hydraulic diagnostic ports. These features simplify preventative maintenance and allow more efficient troubleshooting and repairs, reducing both downtime and operating costs. Every finishing detail of the unit, body and chassis layout is designed with safety and efficiency in mind. The extended reach lower boom (AN67E-E100 only) puts the platform directly on the ground, providing the safest method for linemen to enter. An automatic upper boom stow latch eliminates the need to climb up the truck to secure the boom for road travel. The ergonomic lower control station provides excellent line-of-sight to the platform and convenient access to the truck bed. Available upper boom access walkway allows safe inspection of the upper boom fiberglass for Category A bare hand applications. This attention to safe ingress/egress greatly reduces slip, trip and fall hazards, providing a more safe and productive job site.

Odyne Systems, LLC and Altec, Inc. Approve Non-Exclusive Global Supply Agreement

Odyne Systems, LLC and Altec, Inc. have agreed to market and promote the sale of company's products to Altec customers and potential customers. Odyne Systems develops and manufactures turnkey hybrid solutions optimized for fleets that utilize vehicles with driving cycles that have a high percentage of starting and stopping, and extended periods of job site idle time. Companies operating utility or work vehicles with this profile benefit significantly by using the company’s proprietary parallel plug-in hybrid system. Odyne’s unique modular system can be installed on a wide variety of new and existing vehicles to reduce fuel consumption by up to 50%, depending on application, lowering emissions and providing quiet work site operation. The new distribution agreement with Altec further broadens the reach of Odyne Systems’ hybrid solution, while extending Altec’s offering of green products. The work truck industry will be significantly affected by advancements in vehicle efficiency in the coming years and are to be at the edge with products. Odyne’s plug-in hybrid truck systems increase fuel efficiency while driving by using an electric motor in parallel with the existing drivetrain, providing launch assist and regenerative braking. Once at the job site, vehicles can function without using engine power. Instead, workers use the hybrid plug-in battery system to power work site applications, including equipment mounted to the truck. Fleet managers often have preferences for a certain type of chassis, fuel type or vehicle application configuration. The Odyne system can be applied to a wide range of vehicle configurations without any changes to an OEM engine or transmission. The unique system also does not affect the original EPA certification of the engine. Odyne plug-in hybrid systems can be used on many work truck platforms, including bucket trucks, digger derricks and air compressor truck applications.
