Helix Manipulator Fall Protection MH 35.120

The Helix Manipulator Fall Protection MH 35.120 is a mobile anchor device. It aims to solve the problem of increasingly space-sensitive and cramped areas, where there are no attachment options for fall arrest equipment.

The MH 35.120 mast boom is effectively a crane with a hook that allows workers to attach their fall arrest equipment to it. The MH 35.120 offers a maximum range of 3.5m with a track width of 0.98m, and no overhang. It can be moved without restriction using a radio remote control and thus enables problem-free tracking, said the manufacturer.

The model was first presented at the A+A exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, last November. Another new development from Hematec at the A+A exhibition was the Helix 1004 XL. The company said it is the first battery-operated, compact, self propelled vertical mast platform with a movable boom. The unit has a working height of up to 10m and a lateral reach 4m, with the special feature of a rotating basket and 300kg.
