Stellar Industries Offers Updated Model 12628 Telescopic Crane with Stellar® CDT™ and New T-Max2 Body to Fill Niche

Garner, Iowa – Stellar Industries, Inc. is offering the updated Model 12628 telescopic service crane to fill a niche between the Stellar® models 10628 and 14528 cranes. The Stellar 12628 is an industry first in capacity and functionality, and it now features the Stellar® CDT™ (Crane Dynamics Technology™) control system. The 77,800 ft-lb crane boasts a maximum all hydraulic reach of 28’4” and can lift up to 12,000 pounds at 6’6” in boost mode. The Stellar model 12628 has industry leading features such as a hexagonal boom design for reduced flex and increased strength, and it offers a variable speed, multi-function radio remote control equipped with the Stellar CDT system as a standard feature.

The Stellar CDT system incorporates two-way communications and a feedback feature that is first in the mechanics crane market to offer integral capacity alert incorporated into the handheld controller. The system will indicate to the operator when the load being maneuvered is increasing the load moment of the crane. Indications are by visual and sensory signals built into the Stellar handheld controller using color-coded LED lights and varying cyclical vibrations. The Stellar CDT system can also allow operators who encounter an overload situation to productively operate through that overload situation by increasing crane capacity to 118% of its normal operating capacity for a short period of time. The Stellar CDT equipped 12628 also features a refined safety system. If a capacity monitoring device fails to operate correctly the crane will enter the safe mode. The safe mode will allow the operation of the crane at a reduced speed until the safety device is repaired, replaced or returned to proper working order.

“The 12628 and its recent updates fit nicely in our product line-up,” says Tim Davison, Product Manager, bodies and cranes. “fits the We have a 10,000 lb and 14,000 lb crane that both offer market-leading features,” he continues, “however, many customers wanted something larger than our 10628 but not quite as large as the 14528, so the 12628 growing needs of many customers.” Davison adds, “ And in true Stellar fashion, we’ve made it an industry leading crane and body packed with features, such as the Stellar CDT system, that exceed market expectations!”

In addition to the 12628 crane, Stellar has designed a new mechanic truck body to accommodate this new 77,800 ft-lb crane. The Stellar TMax2 body uses the same Torsion box understructure, the proven Torq-Isolator crane compartment and E-coat primer as standard Stellar bodies. It features up to 60” high and 22” deep compartments with double panel doors, stainless steel hinges and door handles and is designed to accommodate the Stellar CDT Equipped cranes when in boost mode. The TMax2 is part of the new TMax Series.
