Starlifter CX-8T

The CX-8T is the powerful, compact solution to accurate and safe load positioning in civil engineering and other industrial applications, particularly when access and working conditions are restricted.

Used successfully above and below ground and on pontoons and bridges, the highly manoeuvrable rubber-tracked CX-8T, with 360 degrees slew and 4 stages telescopic boom, lifts 8 tonnes, yet occupies a footprint of only 3.48 x 3.48 metres.
