BOOM SKID STEER
This is a tool you wish you possessed. If you’re working on a construction project and need to set trusses, you won’t have to waste time looking for one to rent. It quickly raises them into a safe working position for your carpenter or framer. Keep in mind that your framer must likewise be harnessed for his protection. The steelworker can do the same thing, holding the beam upright until it can be fastened or welded. If you’re a landscaper, this answers your problem of moving and planting more giant trees into the hole while keeping it straight until it can be backfilled, watered, and mulched. These jibs and lift booms have been designed with safety in mind. Please take note of all the lifting restrictions.
What Is the Length of a Skid Steer Truss Boom?
Fixed-length skid steer truss booms come in various sizes, most often 6, 9, or 12 feet.
Because shorter booms provide less leverage on the skid steer, they can lift more weight. For example, Haugen’s 6-foot Skid Steer Truss Boom can lift 2000 pounds, while the nine and 12-foot models can lift 1,000 pounds. Always check your boom’s manufacturer’s guidelines.
Should I get a Skid Steer Truss Jib with Fork Slots or Quick Attach?
If you intend to use your truss boom with machines that do not have a skid steer quick connect mounts, fork slotted may be the preferable choice. When working on larger structures, some clients may prefer to use their truss jib with a telehandler; in this situation, a fork-slotted truss jib would be a better choice.
What if I require a greater lifting capacity?
An adjustable jib may be better if you require extensive lifting capability or a flexible length boom.
Instead of a pintle hitch, Skid Steer Industrial Jibs may have an “eye hook.” Both hook/hitch setups will require outside assistance when lifting or lowering loads.
Your skid steer truss boom hook or hitch should have a higher overall capacity than the remainder of the boom. Many manufacturers install 5-ton hooks on Truss booms rated at only 2,000 pounds.
