Heavy Load Cranes from Effer Cranes and Martin Williams
Effer cranes do have these features, especially the models equipped with electronic control systems such as DMU 3000 Plus, Progress and Progress 2.0.
Given the specificity of the scope of work in which you handle heavy loads close to the crane, the crane operator, but also those that are within its operating range, are often exposed to the risk of collisions with the load or machine.
To guarantee ever higher levels of safety, Effer has included as one of the functions of the new electronic management system Progress 2.0 some devices and solutions for maximum safety and ease of work, such as the Virtual Shield, a system which protects the cab of the truck from any collision with the crane.
Effer has also devised the system Pro.Dec (Progressive Deceleration) which use internal hydraulic shock absorbers at the end of each of the hydraulic extension cylinders. In this way load swinging is considerably reduced, collisions between the jacks in opening and closing are eliminated and this means much safer and effective working .
To moving heavy loads is critical to have a good truck stabilization. Effer has thought of everything designing systems like the CroSStab and the new V-Stab:
- V-Stab: the special position ofthe crane stabilizers leaves a free area adjacent to the base of the machine thus allowing the handling of loads of considerable size and weight. With a standard stabilization base you would have to use a superior class crane to do the same job. The solution V-Stab is available for models from 60 to 150 txm.
- The CroSStab is an Effer patented solution which constitutes an extremely valid alternative to V-Stab as it allows you to position the left stabilizer crossbar in an infinity of possible angles according to the problems that the operational context presents.
Both these solutions allow you to operate in the front area of the vehicle using the crane at its maximum lifting capacity. For this reason, Effer is the only cranes manufacturer providing a 360° stability!
Effer cranes not only guarantee outstanding performance but afford considerable payload thanks to their light compact structure and their power / weight ratio, among the best ever on the market.
Effer cranes have all the credentials to handle loads of considerable size and weight, in particular the range from 100 tons per meter upwards. Look at the models of the big range.
