Manitou 3D Pendular Basket System

When it comes to inspecting or maintaining the underside of a high bridge, traditional methods have significant limitations. Typically, a crane is parked below the bridge, halting traffic as workers are lifted upwards. This method is not only disruptive but also time-consuming and potentially hazardous. With this innovative solution: a telehandler attachment designed to reach beneath a bridge from above. This 3D pendular system offers a unique approach to accessing challenging locations, setting it apart from other crane systems.
