Jekko’s new SPX650CDH lands in Spain
Following the positive reaction to the SPX650 minicrane powered by lithium-battery, the diesel engine and electric motor version is now available. The first diesel engine SPX650 has already been delivered to Spain.
The SPX650CDH is designed to be a high-performance, compact, multi-purpose minicrane featuring a 5t lifting capacity on a very reduced stabilisation area. As an evolution of the lithium-ion battery powered version, this new model has a diesel engine for outdoor operations and can also be connected to the grid for emission-free and noiseless indoor works.
The first production model has been purchased by Talleres Laguillo, a boiler producer based in Cantabria, which also deals in industrial maintenance. The company has chosen Jekko to expand its range of products and differentiate it from its competitors.
Talleres Laguillo needed a small yet high performance crane able to work indoors and outdoors. Afterb examining the solutions available on the market, the customer opted for Jekko and chose model SPX650CDH, a machine reaching a maximum height of 23.5m with a jib, this being a cutting-edge factor to expand the company’s range of services.
Ian Trenzano, sales manager of Jekko’s Spanish dealer Transgrúas, said, “We’re very satisfied we’ve sold the SPX650CDH. Its’ a very compact crane, with smooth yet ready operation, and after the SPX532 we were quite certain it would be a commercially successful product. It’s a highly performing model. We’ve already sold four units and three additional ones will soon follow – we think we can sell many more, in particular to plant hire companies, who’ve already shown their interest.”
Jekko’s head of sales Alberto Franceschini said, “Jekko is extremely satisfied on having delivered the first diesel-powered SPX650 to Spain. Countries such as Spain and Italy are going through the ecological transition in a similar way: both responsive to this topic yet aware that diesel systems still play a major role. We have combined this latter with an electric motor to turn the SPX650CDH into a real eco-friendly yet inexhaustible crane for the Spanish and Italian yards. We like to define this model as the “machine for recovery” that will surely have a great success on the Spanish market and everywhere.”
