Severe Duty Chassis for Boom Truck Market


Freightliner Trucks’ offers a line of severe duty (SD) chassis that are suited for the boom truck market. The 108SD and 114SD truck models provide a very good solution for compact packaging and power offerings that can accommodate all types of crane configurations and capacities from eight to 50 tons.

The new SD line of products features mid-chassis packaging that provide for crane outrigger clearance and rail mounted hydraulic tanks, while front frame extensions are available with radiator mounted grilles to accommodate front bumper stabilizers and load block storage. Freightliner’s proprietary SmartPlex multiplexing electrical system allows for crane-centric safety features such as boom and outrigger storage indicator lights.

The Freightliner 108SD is designed for cranes rated from eight to 30 tons. The 108SD’s visibility and maneuverability make it especially useful for daily rental, roofing and tree service.

Designed for larger capacity cranes with ratings from 30 to 50 tons, the 114SD is available in both set forward and set back axle positions and offers premium power with the Detroit Diesel DD13 engine featuring BlueTec emissions technology.
