Ultra-Safe Mobile Machines
Maximum safety and environmental friendliness The challenges that face mobile machines today.
Safety Valves A Small, but essential, part of a mobile crane.
Deploying people at dizzying heightsOn telescopic work platforms, load-holding valves are used to position the operator’s basket at great heights very safely.
What do safety valves do?
three important basic functions.
Holding the loadSafely in position
Precise work during would be impossible if the boom or the stabiliser cylinders were to continuously sag, and the fitter had to constantly readjust.

Controlling the loadResponsive and precise positioning
Preventing any instability in the load is essential.
One thing is certain:
When lowering a load, the operator must always be able to keep complete control of the machine.

Securing the loadTotal reliability – mobile machines must deliver the highest productivity levels under every operating condition in a consistent, efficient and safe way.
In trench work, for example, the load-securing function prevents the excavator arm from lowering uncontrollably in the event of a hose burst. Due to exposure to sunlight or mechanical damage, hose assemblies have a limited service life and may burst without warning.
The first priority is the
Safety of personnel on the ground and excavator drivers.
