New Crane from Penny Hydraulics at CV Show
A new 1000kg capacity Swing Lift vehicle mounted cranes is highlighted by Penny Hydraulics at CV Show 2007, Stand 4261. The new crane complements the company’s extensive range of vehicle mounted cranes for loads up to 2000kg and platform lifts for loads up to 550kg. These provide operators with efficient, safe and reliable solutions to their load handling requirements and enables them to comply with manual handling regulations. All products are designed and manufactured by Penny Hydraulics to eliminate manual handling and reduce the risk of injury to operators and damage to vehicles and loads. The company will be displaying other vehicle mounted cranes and platform lifts from its extensive range at CV Show.
The new Swing Lift Foldaway 1000 vehicle mounted crane incorporates hydraulic slew and boom extension for precise, controlled handling of loads up to 1000kg on pick-ups, drop sides, flat beds and box vans. It is ideal for applications in industries where manual handling is no longer an option and where other equipment would be inappropriate. Its electric winch enables loads to be handled with even greater precision and is especially useful if items need to be lowered below ground, for example in civil engineering applications.
Simple design and robust construction are combined to produce a crane which is easy to install, operate and maintain for low overall cost of ownership. The new sub-frame design is even more compact than the previous model to maximise the available floor space. Robust manufacture ensures lifelong reliability and durability even in the most arduous operating conditions.
Penny Hydraulics will also be running a daily competition on stand 4261 for visitors to win a “track day” driving a Lotus Elise sports car. The winners will be accompanied to a motor racing circuit where they will receive expert tuition on high speed driving before having the opportunity to put the Lotus through its paces.
