Reduces physical effort
21 March 2014
Terex Material Handling has completely redesigned the Demag KBK Aluline light crane system to create a versatile and ergonomic modular lifting and moving solution.
Reduced rolling resistance enables operators to move loads weighing up to 2,000 kg, by hand, with minimum physical effort.
The new light crane system comprises hollow section aluminium profiles, in four sizes, which deliver improved rigidity and a higher load capacity.
Marc Rieser, head of modular cranes business line, said: "By optimising the interplay between individual components, we have not only reduced the start-up resistance, but also achieved excellent travel resistance values. This improvement is really tangible for the user, who requires significantly less force to move loads.”
