Dingli launches lightweight boom series
By Leila Steed17 October 2022
Dingli has launched its D Series range of lightweight boom lifts, which features a total of seven models, all available in either electric, diesel or hybrid versions.
Based on its original 16m to 22m boom lifts, the new D series of booms comprises four articulating models, the BA16, BA18, BA20 and BA22, and the BT16, BT18, and BT20 telescopic machines.
The platforms offer working heights from 16m up to 22m and maximum load capacity of 250kg.
The modular design of the machines means that 90% of their main components and over 95% of the structural parts are common to the D Series, making maintenance cheaper and user training simpler.
While the models provide the same height coverage at the manufacturer’s old series machines, their new lightweight design also offers a lower centre of gravity for greater stability.
All seven models, which are suitable for container transport, are equipped with an integrated four-wheel drive system, and their components are location on the sides of the chassis for easy access during maintenance.
While electric versions of the booms are fitted with 48V375Ah high-capacity battery pack and offer no noise and zero emissions, the diesel variations are equipped with a low energy-consuming Kubota engine.
Meanwhile the D Series “hybrid range-extended models are equipped with 48V320Ah lithium battery pack”, said Dingli.
“The built-in universal range extender enables the machine to generate electricity by itself when there is no external charging facilities on site.
“Combined with a tank of fuel, the range extender can charge the lithium batteries at anytime.”
