Stellar Industries Inc. has released its Stellar model 23000 OTR tire service crane and TM12154 tire manipulator.

The design was based on Stellar's model 28000 crane to provide maximum lifting performance and solid stability while servicing a versatile selection of equipment in the large quarry operations, small mining facilities and other off the road tire service markets, the company notes.

The 23000 also features a hydraulic A-frame style out and down stabilizing system that allows for a large working area.

The enhanced TM12154 tire manipulator is an option for the model 23000 crane. The TM12154 can manipulate tires from 48 inches up to 154 inches in diameter and up to 12,000 pounds. It features over 315 degrees of body rotation, and either 90 degree or continuous rotation clamping pads. The tire manipulator articulation spans from +81 degrees to -20 degrees.

A complete package is available, the company says, which includes the crane, tire manipulator, and a 20 -foot long steel service body complete with eight D-ring tie downs, stainless steel rotary slam latches, recessed skirt-mounted halogen floodlights, and an underbody protective coating. It also comes with a SHD-245 American Eagle air compressor. The SHD-245 is an industrial truck-mounted four-cylinder, two-stage compressor powered by a hydraulic motor and outputs 110 CFM at 175 psi.

Tim Davison, Stellar's manager of bodies and cranes, says, “We started with our solidly designed 28000 crane to design a strong, smooth performing crane that will service various markets. Not only is it a high capacity crane that is versatile, it is also designed and built strong, and is easy to maintain and service.”
