For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working almost continuously on software for one of our customers newest developments, the TITAN machine – it’s an amazing combination of scissor vehicle, boom vehicle, self-leveling machine, and tele-handler. And they’ve just reached the point where they’re ready to show it to the world:
It’s hard to grasp how impressive this machine is – but check out this press release and the complimentary editorial comment from Vertikal:
… strengths of three machines into one adding the capacity of a telehandler at 4,000lb (2 tons!), to the work area of a large heavy duty scissor lift at 22′ by 7.5′ (a minibus!), and the reach, rotation and outreach of a 40′ boom lift …
… four wheel drive, four wheel steer and automatic platform leveling …
This is an exciting new concept which will prove popular for heavy duty applications … It is excellent to see something so radical at a time when most manufacturers appear to have slowed new product launches to a snails pace. The lift should give the California based company a real boost, in a quiet market.
I haven’t been out to California to see or work on the machine, but I will see it at the ARA show in Florida next week – hopefully I’ll have more pictures then (and maybe some video)
