Crane With A View

As cranes go, they either get the job done or don’t. Not much progress has been made in the past 50 years with crane development. Most of the evolutionary focus has been on lift capabilities and reach. “LYNX” – mobile crane by Jiri Kubec is a revolutionary concept in the way it treats the driver/operator. This concept integrates a control cabin with not only unobstructed views, but the ability to raise up to 8.5 metres high for better project surveillance and maneuverability. With an 80 tons lifting capacity, steering and crane functions controlled via joystick and pedals utilizing drive-by-wire technology, this crane is sure to reduce accidents, make jobs a little easier and capture the imaginations of children everywhere…
