Customer's benefit

The Handy telescope model has an additional extending guide tube to stabilize the lifting movement and thus guarantees extremely precise and effortless positioning of the goods to be transported.

The control unit is rigidly connected to the load handling attachment; this makes it easy to guide the load with just one hand.

This manipulator, combined with an articulated slewing crane or a GISKB suspension crane, is often used to supply machine tools. With a special pick-up device, the load can be lifted eccentrically and dropped at the push of a button.
