Lightweight service truck package launched by IMT
"These innovative product enhancements increase the payload capability of our Dominator I mechanics truck package by approximately 1,000 lbs., while providing our customers with more options to meet their field service needs," said Justin Anderson, IMT marketing representative.
Designed to reduce weight and offer the ability to carry more payload without sacrificing performance, the new 6000 series crane is 30 percent lighter than before. Developed based on voice of customer feedback, the redesigned crane lifts a maximum of 6,000 lbs., and features corrosion-resistant components to mitigate rust. A newly redesigned boom tip offers outstanding precision and maneuverability.
"Reducing the weight and incorporating features that extend the life of the crane ensures our customers benefit from increased payload for years to come," said Anderson.
The 6000 series crane was built to mount on a newly enhanced IMT Dominator I service truck. The new Dominator package comes with payload increasing options such as a compact work bench bumper and a redesigned lightweight customizable bolt bin offering. It's also available with the new CAS40PL air compressor. The new compressor features an aluminum canopy, which reduces its weight more than 40 percent over the previous model. The new 6000 series crane, CAS40PL and lightweight Dominator I body mounted on a 2019 Ford F550 4x4 chassis were on display.
Show attendees also had the opportunity to see the IMT Dominator III service truck with a 12000-lb crane and CAS80R cold weather air compressor on a 2020 Peterbilt 337 chassis. Additionally, a 32/222 articulating crane rear-mounted on a 2020 Kenworth T880 was on display in the booth.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
