Product Teaser

GREATER PRODUCTIVITY IS EASILY WITHIN REACH.

Pierce material handling booms offer superior working range and lifting characteristics with optimum strength-to-weight distribution and cylinder size. Select from our standard offering, or we can accommodate special applications and length requirements. Pierce material handling booms are ideal for close-in and long reach loading and unloading, as well as reaching tall hoppers in extreme above-grade environments. Solid design and construction makes them last longer to extend your productivity even more. Cambered main boom or straight main boom? 2 piece or 3 piece? Single or twin stick cylinders? Long, short or standard lengths?…You name it, Pierce can provide you the best possible attachment for your specific job.

HARD WORKING TOOLS THAT GO THE DISTANCE.

PIERCE LONG STICKS DIG DEEPER AND REACH FARTHER.


Pierce long sticks go to great lengths to improve your productivity. In fact, they can extend your excavator’s reach capabilities up to 50% - allowing you to dig deeper and reach even farther without the investment of a complete long reach or material handling boom.

Designed to fit the excavator’s main boom, stick cylinder and connection pins, our long sticks take advantage of the factory plumbing for commonality and convenience.

Pierce long sticks are designed for the rigors of heavy duty, daily use, unlike pin-on stick extensions or modifications whch are only suitable for light duty incidental work.

Pierce Long Stick Advantages:


• Economically transforms your excavator into a material handler or long reach machine

• Extends excavator reach capabilities up to 50%

• Available from 12’ - 60’ lengths

• Available in excavator and droop nose material handling configurations

• Parflanged hydraulic plumbing

• Pierce grapples and buckets complete the package

• Pierce long sticks Include: Bare stick, hydraulic plumbing, bushings in bores, paint

• Optional:
Bucket cylinder & linkage, WORK TOOLS and Excavator Buckets.
