Elliott Equipment Company has begun installing the new full-color Greer Insight Load Moment Indicator (LMI) system on select BoomTruck models, ranging from 10 to 50 US tons capacity, starting in early 2012.
The Greer Insight LMI, unveiled at ConExpo 2011, is said by the manufacturer to be, “the industry’s only electronic monitoring displays to offer feature-rich capabilities, multiple screens, multiple language options and metric conversions at the click of a button.” It’s waterproof and rugged design is built for clear visibility and full functionality in temperatures as low as negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Elliott customers will benefit from the new full color display, improved sunlight visibility and easy setup. Crane operators can view an image of the crane on a screen that shows rated capacity, actual load weight on the line, radius of the load, boom angle, boom length, working area, and much more. The LMI will also retain all programmed settings after shutdown, eliminating the requirement to recalibrate the LMI during each startup. Furthermore, the Greer Insight was developed specifically for BoomTrucks, making it an excellent fit for Elliott’s niche customizable BoomTruck line.
Elliott Equipment Company plans a wide range of technology improvements throughout 2012 aimed at increasing equipment safety and performance on the job site. Investing in the new Greer Insight LMI is an example of Elliott’s dedication to its mission of “Creating the Best Solutions for Lifting Loads and Positioning People”.
