A Magni TH 6.20 builds a dinosaur
On the occasion of a new display, the National Dinosaur Museum in Canberra built an impressive dinosaur. A Magni TH fixed telehandler took care of the handling and erection of the structure.
The National Dinosaur Museum is a permanent exhibition of prehistoric specimens from the southern hemisphere, located at Gold Creek Village, near Canberra. The museum’s exhibition follows the different stages of the earth’s evolution, with a special focus on the age of dinosaurs.
Since its foundation in 1993, the museum has continued to expand. In fact, on the occasion of a new display, it chose to add a new imposing dinosaur to its collection. A Magni TH 6.20 with a maximum capacity of 6 tonnes and a maximum height of 20 metres was used to complete the assembly and positioning operations. This model proved to be the perfect solution due to the versatility and precision of its telescopic boom.
The machine was supplied by the rental company Jonox Telescopic Forklift Hire, which owns two TH 6.20s and will soon take delivery of a RTH 7.26. This company has been a customer of Allift, our dealer for the eastern region of Australia, for several years and they have built up a strong relationship over time based on the quality and reliability of Magni TH products.
The 2-ton jib was the key attachment to get the job done, allowing to both move and assemble the different parts of the dinosaur in complete safety. Carrying out multiple jobs by simply changing the equipped attachment is a hallmark of Magni telescopic handlers.
We wish to thank the museum for relying on our brand and Allift and Jonox Telescopic for providing the equipment. We are delighted to help ensure that this themed museum continues to provide unforgettable thrills and experiences to families and tourists from all over Australia.
