Full range of safety systems:

The standard HRS and HSspecifications include the Safety Eyes system equipped with a function whichmonitors changes in stability caused by changes in the truck bed loadconditions during crane operation. This allows operation with maximumperformance according to the load conditions.

Safety is further improvedby the ‘AML (Automatic Moment Limiter – Overload Prevention device)’ thatmonitors and controls the crane operation status and restricts or stopsoperation according to the moment load ratio based on the rated load, as wellas the ‘Jack Interlock Function’ that disables crane operation when outriggerjacks are not in contact with the ground, and the ‘Working height limit device’that automatically stops the boom when it reaches the preset height.

The standard HRSspecification also includes a colour LCD radio controller which displays thelifted load and provides other functions that deliver further advances in worksafety and efficiency.
