Hy-Brid Lifts is introducing its all-new PS-1930, a 19-ft. scissor lift that is ANSI A92.20 compliant. Featuring a redesigned scissor stack and low step-in height, it can fit through a standard doorway without fold-down rails, and it weighs less than 2,000 lbs. For more info, read the news about its release here or check out the January-February 2020 issue of Lift and Access.

JLG’s Mobile Control App for its R Series scissor line enables users to drive, steer, and load models while in a stowed position from an iOS mobile device.  The app allows operators to have a better view of the jobsite while moving equipment, which improves safety and reduces potential damage to the work environment.

GMG’s Ramp Control reduces concerns of an over-speed condition during a slab scissor lift's descent on a ramp. It automatically places the machine in low speed (Turtle Mode) if the machine is going downhill until the operator turns it off after returning to a flat surface. It controls the descent without affecting gradeability by understanding the position of the platform, the angle degree of the ramp; direction of the machine on the ramp; and position of the joystick.

The Trojan Trillium Intelligent Lithium battery offers a superior cell and design paired with built-in diagnostics and a life expectancy over 5,000 cycles. Trillium’s advanced diagnostics include a visual state-of-charge gauge on the top of the battery, and its CAN bus system shares data with other devices. A microprocessor ensures the battery is completely self-protected, and if a problem is detected, it will turn itself off. When a problem goes away, it turns back on, automatically self-healing

JCB’s 512-56 Loadall with a 74-hp JCB EcoMAX engine makes it the first 12,000-lb. telehandler that requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF), no diesel engine fluid (DEF), and no other engine aftertreatment. 

The Magni RTH 13.26 SH offers a maximum lifting capacity of 28,600 lbs., whether on stabilizers or on rubber tires for pick and carry. At its maximum lifting height of 86 ft., it can lift 17,600 lbs., and it has a maximum reach of 70 ft., where it can lift 4,000 lbs.

The ReachMaster Bluelift B35-EB is designed specifically to address applications in shopping malls, airports, hospitals, and museum locations, or any location where operator needs to go up, over, and out from a handrail and then descend to work below level. The compact lift does this through an elevator system, mounted to the jib. Once an operator swings the unit out over a handrail, the jib is lowered to the vertical position, creating a system that runs along the jib like an extension and elevator for the basket. 

 

The Pettibone Traverse is the only telehandler on the market today with a traversing boom carriage. This capability allows operators to safely place loads with greater precision at full lift height, all without needing to coordinate multiple boom functions or reposition the machine while landing a load.

The Ryze SBL (Scissor and Boom Lift) Simulator is intended to supplement actual equipment training by offering a safe, blended learning solution. The virtual reality (VR) software consists of 33 training scenarios, including three 20-minute practical evaluations that meet industry requirements for boom lifts, slab lifts, and diesel rough-terrain scissor lifts. The simulator allows the operator to attempt IPAF and ANSI training requirements in a dynamic environment without risk of physical harm.

The SRK-11 allows the self-rescue of any worker at height, regardless of industry. Certified for up to 600 feet, the kit uses high heat aramid fiber rope with a tensile strength exceeding 6,700 lbs. 

Elevate, Skyjack’s off-highway telematics solution, is specifically designed for rental fleets. The system departs from traditional telematics products with origins in the transportation industry using the data that research has shown rental customers care about most to produce actionable insights and measurable benefits. Elevate is designed to be a full connected fleet solution that provides rental customers with immediate results without complex subscription fees or annual service charges.

GMG's I-Power integrates all the safety components on electric slab scissors into one system to communicate with each other and interpret the operator’s actions in order to enhance performance and safety. The abilities of GMG's I-Power system reduce maintenance needs by preventing over-amping of electrical components and extending battery life. This allows GMG to provide a two-year warranty for batteries on machines with I-Power.

The three-axle Demag AC 45 City redefines compactness in the 50-ton lifting capacity class with a total length of 28’6”, a width of 8’4”, and an overall height of 10’8”. Its height can be reduced to less than 9 ft., and the base section of its fully hydraulic main boom is also particularly compact with its length of 25’7”.

The Jekko SPK 60 is a versatile telescoping crawler crane that can be driven or operated via radio remote with a maximum lifting capacity of more than 6.5 tons and reach of nearly 89 ft. with extensions. 

Manitou’s MRT 2470 Privilege Plus rotating telehandler can lift 15,400 lbs. to 80’4” and reach 67’3” forward. It offers three operating modes (telehandler, winch, and platform) and numerous attachments. Its boom and 360° rotation allow operators to swing and place materials instead of pick, drive, and place them.

The Magni RTH 8.25 SH offers the heaviest maximum lifting capacity for a rotating telehandler at 17,600 lbs. and a maximum lifting height of 81 ft. With its attachments, it can serve as several machines in one, including a telescopic forklift, rough-terrain crane, access platform and more. The RTH 8.25 SH can lift 11,600 lbs. at maximum height and 2,600 lbs. at a maximum forward reach of 69 ft. 

The HA61 LE PRO is the first model in Haulotte’s Pulseo line, which debuted at Intermat in April. Due to its quiet electric design, the HA61 LE PRO can operate in both indoor and outdoor applications, and it’s ideal for low-emission and low-noise environments. The Pulseo line also incorporates Haulotte’s latest safety innovations, including the Activ Shield Bar 2.0, the Activ Lighting System, and the Activ Energy Management System.

When most people think of the massive San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, few even consider it could have tight working spaces. But Golden State Bridge Inc. and Bigge Crane & Rigging knew working underneath the 30 acre bridge spanning from San Francisco to Oakland would present certain lifting space and access challenges. That's why they chose the Maeda MC285-2 Mini Crane to work on an elevated platform 160’ off the ground.

 

Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack division has launched a new range of telehandlers. Designated the TH series, the four new telehandlers replace the existing VR telehandler series.

In this Lift and Access equipment review, Barry Greenaway shows the features and benefits of the 8,000-pound capacity Skyjack SJ843 TH telehandler. 

A Maeda mini-crane recently helped move materials beyond a tower crane's reach. On an addition to the St. David’s Medical Facility in Austin, Texas, the tower crane couldn’t access the farthest corner of the structure. The stage steel beams, the tower crane hoisted a Maeda MC 285 mini-crane to the roof. Erectors found the mini-crane was much faster at assembling the steel because of its close proximity and precise placement.
