Spider specialist Hinowa launched its 23.2 m maximum working height spider, the LightLift23.12. The 3000 kg machine is the Italian company's tallest ever and offers 11.4 m of maximum outreach.
Maximum working height and outreach is with 120 kg payload in the basket. A 200 kg payload reduces the working height to 21.78 m and outreach to 9.61 m.
Hinowa said the machine is a "completely new design". Noteworthy is its double-knuckle main boom, extended by a single hydraulic cylinder, to provide vertical movements up to 11 m and a maximum up-and-over height of approximately 9.5 m.
The 23.12 is Hinowa's first offering of automatic self-leveling, as an option. Also first in this expansion of the LightLift line is optional remote monitoring and diagnostic capability.
Worldlift Industries in Denmark has re-introduced its 12 m working height Denka Lift DK12, calling it the MkII. Maximum payload of the 1800 kg machine is 200 kg and maximum outreach is 8 m.
The MkII has the same all-steel chassis, slewing ring, and superstructure as the earlier model, which was discontinued in 2004. However, it has the controls, steering, and hydraulics of the DK 15 launched last year.
Central to the model's 5-hour continuous run time is a variable-speed, continuous displacement hydraulic pump. Its output is proportional, said Worldlift, to the desired speed of boom movements and saves energy.
Specialist manufacturer PB Lifttechnik has extended its ES series with a 22.5 m working height model, the S225-12ES. It is the company's tallest scissor, and the tallest in the world having a 1.2 m width, said PB.
The 10290 kg model has a payload of 450 kg. It is the same length as the S195 model, 4.49 m, and its transport height is 250 mm greater, at 2.89 m.
