IMT launches new body design for Dominator III mechanics truck

first_imgIowa Mold Tooling Co Inc (IMT), the Oshkosh Corporation company and manufacturer of service vehicles, truck-mounted cranes, hydraulic loaders and air compressors for mining and other heavy industries, has announced the release of a new Dominator® III mechanics body. The new body design accommodates the IMT model 12000 telescopic crane without a front stabiliser for customers that do not require 100% 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 ft and 14 ft lengths, replacing the existing 13 ft 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.The Dominator III model is designed for customers who need more lifting capacity than the Dominator II vehicle’s 10,000 lb maximum, but do not require the 14,000 lb capacity of the Dominator IV mechanics truck. Designed specifically to support the IMT 12000 telescopic crane, which provides up to 30 ft 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 innovative five-sided boom offers premium strength and durability.”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• Patented boom hook stow that allows the boom hook to be stowed more easily and fasterThe Dominator III model also features excellent accessibility to tools — without losing any storage ¬— by providing front vertical compartments with single doors. IMT also incorporated the patented shelf hanger bracket system that enables quick adjustments of compartment shelves.  In addition, the truck features the new enhancements to the Dominator family:• A energy absorbing boom stow that protects the top of the body compartments from damage if too much pressure is exerted from stowing the crane• High-intensity LED compartment lighting• A multiplex electrical system with programmable logic for increased reliabilityThe new Dominator III mechanic bodies are available for order now and are currently planned to being shipping in December 2015.last_img
