Shuttlelift has added the DB90 and DB165 double-beam, rubber-tired gantry cranes to its product line, which are designed to service the concrete and steel industries.
“We have been receiving numerous requests from customers, especially within the precast concrete market, for machines with the capability to carry loads ranging between the industry norms of 70 and 110 tons,” said Kurt Minten, Shuttlelift’s director of industrial sales.
The 90-ton DB90 rubber-tired gantry crane is a solution for users who need a machine that can handle larger loads than the 70-ton DB70 but smaller than the 110-ton DB110. “With the additional weight of a spreader assembly, the DB90 becomes a more economical solution,” said Minten.
The larger 165-ton DB165 machine is designed with today’s concrete and steel industries in mind. Continued increases in load size has brought about an increase in requests for a crane that offers the capability to lift more than the 150-ton DB150. The new DB165 fills this need and, like all Shuttlelift models, can carry the maximum capacity along the full width of the crane.
“The Shuttlelift feature that really stands out on the DB165 is how the full crane capacity can be traversed side to side, the full width of the crane,” said Brock Rubens, manager of industrial sales and marketing at Shuttlelift. “It is not a crane that is only rated for full capacity in the center.”
