Two of the five models are new this year, the GH 12500 – capacity 12.5t in 1Am duty with 4:1 reeving – and the GH 20000 – capacity 20t in 1AM duty with 4:1 reeving. The line goes up to 25t capacity. Standard speeds are 4m/min, 5m/min, 6.3m/min and 8m/min.

“At the show we will take some feedback to see which is the next to refresh: the small or the big one,” said lifting equipment division manager Werner Bundscherer.

The company is also showing a new range of hollow-shaft gearboxes for travel drives, and a chain hoist that it manufactures.
