The boom launcher is used to take the boom of the crane to reduce its tare weight. Once the crane is on site, the trailer “launches” the boom into the crane. The launcher is very weight sensitive because the booms must be hauled in weight bans and various jurisdictions.
The Temisko boom launcher is flexible as it can launch many models of booms by changing out the attachments that link the trailer to the boom. The unique design of the chassis allows this unit to be as light as possible, opening up some configuration possibilities that are simply not possible without a lightweight unit.
