The redesigned Easy Arm Q/iQ intelligent lifting arm integrates the G-Force Q and iQ lifting technology and processor-controlled servo-drive system into an articulating jib design. Suitable for precision placement applications, it acts like an extension of the operator’s arm, guided by their intelligence but taking on the bulk of the work. The lifting arm comes in 165- and 330-pound capacities and offers spans up to 14 feet. The actuator is mounted on the pivot, not the arm, making the arm lightweight and easy to move. The self-contained unit comes preassembled and installs easily.
