The GL crane is a development of two earlier designs of cargo cranes and incorporates the best features of both. In addition to direct manual control from the cab, a remote control facility and programmed control can be arranged. The crane has been designed to give high cargo-handling productivity and it has a short minimum out-reach, allowing maximum cargo-spotting ability. The machinery is fully protected within the totally-enclosed crane casing, hydrostatic motor drives offer the benefits of compact size, robust construction and low maintenance, and stepless speed regulation without energy loss.
