In its customary location was the Cormach display stand, highlight of which was the new range-topping model 225000E knuckle boom loader crane.

It is the largest articulating crane with in line booms that mounts on a truck, according to the manufacturer. Maximum horizontal outreach of the 225000 E9 Jib4, to give it its full name, is 46 m, achieved with a nine section boom plus a jib with four extensions. Maximum capacity is 39 tonnes and at the full horizontal outreach capacity is still 680 kg.

The first unit of the 225 tonne-metre rated giant was on display and sold, to be delivered to a customer after the show. It will be mounted on a four axle truck with a base and a subframe. Applications include precast concrete construction and industrial installations, for example, bridge crane beams in factories.
