This machine, with a lifting capacity of 144t and a maximum radius of 54m, is fitted with the intelligent SmartGrip technology, capable of « optimizing the filling rate of the grab in a self-learning manner » according to the manufacturer. It can also « prevents overloads, increases the material handling rate and, at the same time, alleviates crane operator stress ».
