Falcon introduces extra capacity spider
By Euan Youdale10 February 2022
Falcon Lifts has launched a new 38m working height spider lift, adding to its Vario range.
The new Falcon 380XL Vario is equipped with an XL-sized basket with dual entry, enhanced basket capacity of 450kg and comes with a panel carrier as standard. The dimensions of the basket are 0.8m x 2m.
The basket panel carrier allows operators to place material outside the platform for access at height. It is suitable for lifting glass panels, solar panels, plywood and other materials that come in panels up to 100kg.
This makes the new model perfect for glaziers, general construction, façade maintenance, painting and inspection tasks, said the company.
As standard, dual power comes from an EU Stage V Kubota diesel which offers improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions, and a chargeable battery power pack. And, as with the existing 330Z Vario model, the track section is both height and width adjustable.
The new Falcon has an overall length of 8.41m, width of 1.43m and height of 1.95m. The outrigger spread is automatically detected and fed into the Falcon system offering working outreach up to 16.5m.
In addition, the 380Xl Vario boasts a compact, low weight design at 8250kg, which keeps ground pressure low when operators are working in sensitive conditions.
