The recovery boom features an
impressive fixed reach of 41-feet – a
three-foot longer boom working radius
than its closest competitor. This added
range gives operators the ability to
reach farther and handle jobs that
were previously out of reach.
The three stage, independent, hydraulic,
extendable boom features a lifting
capacity of 100,000 lbs. @ 30-degrees
when retracted, and 20,000 lbs when
fully extended (using SAE J2512
boom lift ratings). The torsion box
frame increases the RBM rating to an
unmatched 12 million RBM at the
turret, while minimizing twist and
increasing tip load capacities. It
also minimizes stress to the truck
frame during recovery and material
The low profile outrigger system
includes a compact scissor-style
design that minimizes the need
for cribbing on uneven terrain and
road crown, thereby saving time
and increasing profits. The outrigger
system also offers 26” inches of
stroke and 14” of ground penetration
allowing the operator to level the unit
on a 6 degree incline.
The body features an abundance of
storage space, with multiple tool
compartments, pull out drawers and
tool management systems.
The composite body – with a 15 year
history – has a track record second
to none, providing maintenance free
and corrosion resistant components.
The unit is standard with a 35,000
lb. underlift and 124” reach with an
option of 144” reach. There is also
an upgrade option to the 53,000 lb.
underlift with 141” reach or 56,500 lb.
underlift with a 176” reach.
Standard main winches are 50K
2-speed with an option to scale down
to 35K 2-speed. An optional 35K
2-speed deck winch is also offered.
All these features and all this muscle
with a nimble and manageable weight
of just 63,350 lbs. This unit definitely
hits the mark.
Added Amsley, “Like all Jerr-Dan
vehicles, the new Jerr-Dan 50-Ton
Rotator was developed with help
from towing professionals. They
provided valuable insight and input
to our engineering and product
development team and, as you can
clearly see, the proof is in the product.”
