Nordkran has also become the first in Germany to take delivery of a Faresin FR6.26 Full Electric compact rough terrain telehandler. Powered by 80V 300Ah lithium-ion batteries, the FR6.26 delivers a maximum lifting capacity of 2,600kg, and a maximum lift height of up to 5.79m, while being completely zero emissions. Nordkran has also placed an order for a Snorkel SR1745 for their construction customers.
Specializing in creating tailor-made lifting solutions, Nordkran works with a range of leading manufacturers, such as Jekko, to provide their customers with cranes, mini cranes, glass handling robots and vacuum technology for a wide range of applications. As an official Ahern Deutschland sales partner, Nordkran will work to build brand awareness and customer adoption for Snorkel and Faresin telehandlers in their respective sectors within the defined sub-dealer territory, as well as providing local service and support for units in the field.
Maik Buchtmann, managing director of Nordkran, said, “We are very pleased to be appointed as an official sales partner to Ahern Deutschland for the Snorkel and Faresin telehandlers. Both the Snorkel and Faresin brands have a reputation for simple, reliable and high-quality products, and we are excited to be able to offer them to our customer base.
