GGR to distribute Cormidi in UK
February 1, 2013 | Comments (0)
The Cormidi lift can be used as a spider crane, spider lift or underbridge unit through a number of attachments. GGR says that the new products will allow it to branch out into the powered access market. The company has already added a couple of the multipurpose spiders to its rental fleet - the Cormidi KB19-4 and KB22-4.
GGR chief executive Graeme Riley said: “We are excited to bring these innovative machines to the UK and break new ground for GGR by offering powered access equipment to our customers. I’m confident that the Cormidi KB19-4 and KB22-4 spider lifts will be popular additions to our range as they are flexible machines that will appeal to a number of niche markets.”
“The KB19-4 and KB22-4 are the first true spider lift-crane fusion machines. No other combined access platform and compact crane in the market can rival the multi-functionality, capacity, flexibility and minimal dimensions of these versatile spider lifts which are the only machines of their kind with an underbridge reverse basket function.”
"The cranes have three stage telescopic booms with innovative knuckle sections and hydraulic jibs for accurate positioning. As a work platform and underbridge unit, the KB series flexible boom system can easily lift an operator up, over, then underneath a bridge for repairs and maintenance. These access platforms can reach a 19.5 or 22 metre working heights with 11.3 metres of horizontal outreach and four metres down reach for underbridge work."
Weighing 2,900kg, GGR says the KB19-4 is more suitable for low point loading areas as an underbridge unit. As a spider crane with a maximum capacity of 995kg, the KB19-4 offers more lifting power, control and reach than standard spider cranes. It has a maximum tip height of 14.6 metres (16 metres with searcher hook), 365 slew and fast winch speeds. The KB22-4 has a 17 metre maximum working height (18.5 metres with searcher hook).
Both models feature stabilisation sensors, an over-lowering alarm, auto-levelling outriggers, diagnostic function and a radio remote for controls.
