Shuttlelift reveals new DB Series gantry cranes

September 27 - Shuttlelift has announced the launch of a newly developed series of double-beam mobile gantry cranes designed to provide state-of-the-art material handling and operational efficiency at an exceptional value.

As an industry leader in rubber-tyed gantry cranes, Shuttlelift's new "DB" Series was engineered in response to a growing need in the marketplace for cost effective lifting solutions for consumers needing to lift heavy, bulky items from production to transport. 

The new DB Series, double-beam gantry crane will appeal to plant managers looking for a more cost-effective way to do business. The company says that through quality, maneuverability, precision handling and user-friendly operation it is dedicated to innovation and customer-inspired lifting solutions. 

Shuttlelift says that the DB series gantry crane is perfect for markets seeking high-quality crane performance and a high return on investment. The crane provides safe and quick picks, as well as minimising costly maintenance and down time. When value is measured by the return on investment, the DB series provides exceptional functionality, efficiency and cost savings at every turn, claims the company. 

Plant managers have many alternatives to weigh when choosing a machine for on-site material handling. According to Shuttlelift's director of industrial sales, Kurt Minten, "they want a machine that is efficient, versatile, and that will not only do the job but be easy to maintain and operate. These are important factors to a business when you want to find a complete lifting solution that will fit your specific needs." 

"The DB series completes the Shuttlelift lineup of mobile gantry crane offerings for all markets and applications. It follows the ISL and SL Series product lines, as well as the SB series released last year. The DB series is our latest innovation to fulfill the needs of our customers," said Minten. 

Shuttlelift's gantries offer value-added options which allow for greater crane performance. These include Wireless Remote Control, Automatic Variable Throttle (ATV), Wireless Load Read-Out, All Wheel Electronic Steering, or the Auxiliary Power Hoist System (APHS).
