“Better return on investment”

Sjöströms Åkeri in Hudiksvall, Sweden, has put the VSLPLUS feature to good use. “Working on a bridge,” Managing Director Lars Sjöström says, “we could still carry out the job with satisfactory safety and capacity.”

VSLPLUS also lets you counterbalance any reduction in lifting capacity as you unload. “For example,” he says, “if you’re moving tiles up onto a roof you can maintain optimal lifting capacity throughout the operation if you unload in the right order.”

The bottom line, Sjöström says, is that, “you can utilise the crane better and get more work, improving the return on investment.”

Another company that welcomed VSLPLUS from the start is Transgruas J. Salavedra in Girona, Spain – a versatile company, working in construction, industry and transport.

“We use VSLPLUS in narrow spaces, where you can’t make full use of the stabiliser legs,” says Managing Director Josep Salavedra Ciurana. “This enhances our working capacity and provides extra safety. Now we work with better security, information and trust.”

How VSLPLUS works

In front of the truck
• Detecting the vehicle’s total weight and moment on each stabiliser leg, VSLPLUS makes it possible to carry out tricky operations.

Stabiliser legs
• Sensors in leg and extensions send information to the intelligent safety system SPACE for stability calculations for every position.

Truck bed load
• The heavier the load on the vehicle, the more stable it will be, even with stabiliser legs not fully extended.
