iF concept design award 2008

LYNX is a mobile crane concept of 80 tons lifting capacity. Driver's cabin and operator's cabin are combined into one at the end of an auxiliary two-piece hydraulic folding arm. Steering and crane functions are controlled via joystick and pedals utilizing drive-by-wire technology. The front part brings a new system of hook transportation allowing better driver's visibility when driving on public roads. The cabin can be lifted up to 8,5 metres high to improve survey over construction site. It can be moved either to transport position or to crane operating position as on conventional cranes. Outrigger legs are integrated into striped warning panels. The jury: intelligent solution, impressive crane!
