This new crane, developed above all for the French market, and specifically for the public works sector, is characterized by the foldable assembled hydraulic tool (bucket), to allow the body to be free from obstructions and easier working underneath the hopper. This characteristic will turn into a sure advantage once the directive requiring that body used to carry crumbly materials be covered will be enacted at the European level.
