    For greater versatility, owners can choose between two trolleys – a DMP unit with permanent double reeving for maximum lifting power or an SM/DM Quick Lock trolley for the flexibility to change reeving.


  • Description

    The MDT 159 features two new trolley systems, one with permanent four falls and one with an automatic reeving system, allowing owners to select the best option for them. The DMP trolley is a simple and economical system that is easy to set up and requires only limited maintenance. The permanent double reeving means no adjustment to the ropes is needed on site and the crane’s maximum capacity of 6 t is permanently available. The DMP trolley also offers 0.5 m greater height under hook compared to the SM/DM Quick Lock™ alternative.

    The chief advantage of the SM/DM Quick Lock™ trolley is its ability to automatically change reeving at the flick of a switch. This process is managed and secured by the CCS and requires no manual intervention or accessories. This allows owners to take on a wider variety of lifting tasks as required.
