Magni RTH 5.25 builds new bridges in Belgium
Magni rotating telehandlers are ideal for the major construction sector because of their high performance and versatility. The confirmation also comes from Belgium: the construction company Geerits Verhuur has chosen to use three Magnis to build two new bridges.
Anyone driving along the outer ring in Zaventem (Belgium) will notice three Magnis at work. In this area, two new bridges will replace one that was recently demolished. The work is aimed at creating a passage on the highway twice as wide and spacious, so all users will be able to move smoothly and safely.
The project also includes the creation of a separate bicycle and pedestrian path (in the context of the Bicycle Highways to Brussels), a free bus lane for public transport in both directions and an ‘eco-passage’, a green area devoted to plants and animals.
Besix, the company leading the project, chose the local company Geerits Verhuur to support them with machines to complete part of the job. The latter has been a Magni customer for some time and has 12 RTH rotating telehandlers in its fleet.
For this specific job, the company chose three RTH 5.25SH. With a maximum capacity of 5 tonnes and a lifting height of up to 25 metres, these models are used to build and install the formwork panels for the retaining walls on bridge abutments. Moreover, thanks to their versatility they are also used to handle various types of materials and equipment within the site.
This is one of Magni’s greatest advantages: offering a forklift, crane and platform in one machine, reducing equipment costs and increasing productivity. Infact, the wide range of attachments offered and the R.F.ID coupling system allows for quick switching between attachments.
