Heavy lifting (PDF, 1.2 MB)
Nearly all the recent activity in the ultra heavy lift sector has been with the specialist heavy lift companies such as ALE, Mammoet and Sarens. All three already have their own mega-lift machines, and all three are in the process of launching new versions or building more of their largest cranes for contracts around the world. We round-up the latest news from the sector as well as interviewing Grant Mitchell of Sarens UK and highlight some interesting applications from around the world.

Rough Terrain boom lifts (PDF, 1.3 MB)
We delve into the history of Genie which formally celebrated its 50th anniversary in September at the same time launching its new SX-135XC telescopic boom lift. Also, this year has seen the introduction of two new self-propelled boom lifts equipped with levelling outriggers. We review both the ATN and Dinolift and compare them with the lighter semi-self propelled platforms.

Also Paul Koolmees of mat supplier Welex sheds an expert eye on the advantages and disadvantages of the various hard and tropical woods used for heavy timber mats.
