Altec Launches New Transmission Digger Derrick

BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - January 10, 2017) - Altec, Inc. is excited to announce the release of the DT65H. The DT65H Digger Derrick is a hydraulically-actuated, continuous rotation, heavy-duty transmission digger derrick designed with steel load-bearing structures. The unit features a fiberglass 3rd stage boom and has a 21,051 lb lifting capacity at 10 feet.

"The 21,051 lb lifting capacity at 10 feet gives some indication of the operator's ability to dig a hole, and lift and set a large transmission pole with just one unit set up," notes Chris Barnes, Altec Market Manager. "This increases productivity and efficiency on the job site."

The DT65H provides the following features:

  • Fully hydraulic, pilot operated controls
  • Standard 15,000 lb planetary winch
  • Full-view riding seat with single handle control
