It is the smallest of the CTE High Range and reaches up to 61m of working height.


Dinolift is continuing to develop the Dino 220XSE boom lift with some new features. The boom has an extra-large basket, 1.3m x 2.4m, with 350kg capacity to carry three people and extra tools through the entire working envelope. It also seconds as a remotely operated telehandler with a lifting capacity of 500kg. The basket is mounted on the boom with forks that feature a safe, quick-release mechanism. At Bauma, the 220XSE will be equipped with optional outriggers to enable use on slopes up to 12°and for it to be levelled horizontally. The outriggers are operated from the basket when the machine is used as a work platform and by remote control when used in telehandler mode.

The 220XSE now also comes with a radio control for easier manoeuvrability when using the machine in telehandler mode. Radio control enables the operator to be positioned closer to the unloading of the lifted goods, adding to the precise operation of the lifting forks. Some important safety features include the intelligent driving system.

Dinolift’s 12m telescopic trailer lift is on the stand - now with batteries. The Dino 120TB’s working cycle with its 2 x 12 volt battery pack is easily eight hours; if the batteries are empty the operator is able to resume work as soon as the charging starts. Its sister model, the Dino 120T is still available with the original 230 volt operation and optional gasoline power pack.


Easy Lift will exhibit a new 36m tracked platform at Bauma, along with its existing EV150 for the first time mounted on a Ford.
