Wilbert WT 2405L e.tronic
German tower crane makers, Wilbert has to make wonder by producing Europe’s strongest luffing jib, a star among their line of “Heavy Lifter” series. Using a unique pendular counter-ballast system, it reduces the torque on the tower of the WT 2405L e.tronic and to increase stability, the cross-section of the jib is in rectangle-shaped instead of common triangular design.
