Shuttlelift launches “market driven” models
24 April 2008
New Carrydeck cranes from Shuttlelift are the 9 ton capacity Model 3339 and the 22 ton capacity Model 7755.
The company said the design of both units is based on input from dealers and customers, and they consider the new units a part of their “market driven” approach to design. Both models are the result of continuous product improvement involving dealers and customers, according to a company spokesman.
Shuttlelift says its Model 3339 offers features that will make it the most versatile crane in its weight class. The crane will lift 9 tons through 360 degrees on outriggers and has a 31 foot horizontal reach with a fully hydraulic, three-section boom. It has up to 48 feet of horizontal reach with its offsettable, swing away jib. The new pivoting boom head offers the lowest profile head at any boom angle, the manufacturer claimed, and the unit has a 52 inch tail swing, a 120 feet per minute main hoist line speed, quick reeve style rigging, and larger outrigger pads, for less ground pressure when on outriggers. The 7 foot 3 inch overall height is to allow shipping in hard top containers.
Capacity of the Model 7755 has been upgraded to 22 tons and it is available with a 43 foot, three-section boom, or in a 67 foot, five-section version. It replaces the 20 ton capacity Model 7750.
