Shuttlelift will introduce a single beam gantry crane at February's National Precast Concrete show in Arizona, USA. The new crane has been dubbed the SB series.
Shuttlelift says the SB series is an effective solution when using gantry cranes in tandem, lifting such items as concrete bridge beams or wind tower components. The Shuttlelift SB series can be used in conjunction with a customer's existing conventional rubber-tired gantry crane, regardless of brand.
The company says the SB gantry crane is an alternative to permanent overhead bridge cranes, and is less expensive. It only needs the door of a building to be of sufficient size, with adequate headroom, to operate anywhere in the confines of the building. If a company relocates, the crane can be disassembled and moved.
"As always, we are constantly looking for ways to accommodate the needs of our existing customers and offer new customers a thoughtfully designed and integrated solution for their lifting needs," said Kurt Minton, director of industrial sales. "We are particularly excited with this new concept and believe we are delivering value for money, again."
