Elliott Equipment Company, a manufacturer of aerial work platforms and material handling equipment, has introduced its new D47 digger derrick. The D47 is a digger derrick designed to meet the needs of demanding distribution applications. 

The D47 has a 26,000-pound lifting capacity, making it ideal for a wide range of lifting and material handling tasks. It also has a 17- to 26-foot digging radius, enabling it to reach difficult-to-access areas. Standard features including 46kV insulation, independent boom operation, transferable pole guide, and a line body and rear-mounted hydraulic tool circuit mean the D47 comes fully ready to operate. 

The D47 is also equipped with several features that make it easy to operate and maintain. These features include full pressure, open centre hydraulic controls, hydraulic side load protection, a planetary swing drive, a winch motor that is typically found on larger machines, and an ergonomic control console with a high back air suspension seat.

Elliot Equipment says that the D47 is backed by a lifetime structural warranty.

"We are really excited to introduce the D47 digger derrick," says Jim Glazer, president and CEO of Elliott Equipment Company. "This new product is designed with the operator in mind, and we believe it is the most user-friendly distribution digger derrick on the market today." 

The D47 is available now through Elliott Equipment Company and United Rentals

"We share the same commitment to helping our customers work efficiently, and the D47 model is a great and user-friendly option that we are proud to offer as part of our end-to-end utility solution," says Craig Schmidt, vice president of national accounts at United Rentals. "We are excited to partner with Elliott and give our customers access to a new generation of digger derricks that helps drive safety and productivity in the utility space."
