Safi's new hoists use conductor rails, instead of cables, to get electrical power to their platforms.

Although Bronto's +100m platform and OP Pagliero's 85 m machine won't make it to Intermat, there is still much worthy of your attention at the massive Paris event. Among these are: JLG's 32 m platform height Liftlux 320–35, Genie's new high–capacity S–60 HC boom, and a slew of newly–launched machines from host country's Haulotte, as well as launches from Bison Palfinger, Hinowa, Fraco, and Manitou. And don't forget: Haulotte is offering a massage and relaxation area with “Zen music and exotic cocktails” on its stand.
