Portland Tiller Crane Unit

Dec. 13, 2012
Heavy-duty Crane Unit

The apparatus is built on a tiller configuration, except that the rig features a heavy-duty crane  mounted directly behind the cab. The heavy-duty crane is manufactured by Iowa Mold Tooling (IMT).

When placed into service, it will respond to a wide range of emergencies throughout the tight and congested areas of Portland, including trench rescues, confined space rescues, tunnel collapses, and more.

The unit features a 16-inch raised roof cab and seating for six. The vehicle, with a GVWR of 74,300 lbs., features Pierce’s TAK-4 independent suspension on both the front axle and the rear tiller trailer.

The body features 15 compartments with a wide array of slide-out and tilting trays, shelves, and toolboards for rescue equipment, compressors and hydraulic hoses. The IMT articulated crane is built by Pierce sister company, IMT.
