NARROW OR WIDE TRACKS? THIS IS THE DILEMMA ALSO THE XTJ 37+ MODEL ADOPTS THE EXTENDABLE TRACK SYSTEM
How many times have you given up a job because of the too irregular and uneven ground? Not to mention those hateful roads that prevent the machines to transfer.
Palazzani Spider Lifts are available on crawlers and on wheels, but for sure the crawler version is the most common one, because of the versatility and stability during transfer on every type of ground.
At this point, the question is: wide or narrow tracks? Why not both? Palazzani offers this solution, included now in most of all Palift range.
After having collected various feedback and requests from the customers, Palazzani has decided to study and to finally include the extendable tracks option also on the XTJ 37+ model.
Palazzani is always attentive to the market feedback and different needs according to the applications, with openness and a spirit of continuous improvement. The Spider Lift XTJ 37+ is now performing great even in the most extreme contexts, in total safety, agility and stability, expanding its range of applications and relieving the operator from all those thoughts related to the terrain, narrow spaces and instability.
The large tracks allow the operator to transfer stable and safe with a still compact machine of 1500 mm width. This configuration also allows the truck loading and unloading with ramps in maximum safety.
On the other hand, the narrow tracks are a must to overcome the common difficult passages in indoor jobs (doors, corridors, etc.) with the maximum compactness of 1200 mm.
Another feature to highlight on the XTJ 37+ is the “back to home” option which, combined with the anti-collision system on the cage, provides 360 ° full protection to the operator.

EVEN WATER DOESN’T SCARE US !!
TELECOM AERIAL INTERVENTION AT 50 METERS ON THE WATER TANK
Interventions on Telecoms are more and more frequent and can often be complicated, especially due to the important heights. Safety is for sure one of the main factors to do the job in the best way, along with a skilled operator knowledge of the machine itself.
MediaCo, the number one in lifting and maintenance in France, is the well-known Company specialized in providing a large range of equipment, cranes, trucks for rental business as well as service, through its network of 80 local agencies and its professional teams. The reliability and quality of Palazzani machines have established an important relationship between the two Companies.
We would like to talk about one of the many jobs the French company carried out, thanks to the Spider Lift XTJ 52: an aerial intervention in Telecoms application on a 50-meter-high water tank. The mission was the positioning and replacement of some components of the antenna.
„The fact is that the working site was very difficult: there was a limited set-up area and the boom of the machine had to get as close as possible to the roof” tells us Mr. Jérôme Augereau, MediaCo operator. „It was necessary to reach a working height of 42 meters and an outreach of 9 meters to accomplish the job. A hard work, but not impossible, thanks to the Spider XTJ 52”.
In this scenario, the machine had to operate in half-set-up with the stabilizer number 3 (front side of the work area) due to the cables passing underground, at the foot of the water tank. Consequently, it was not possible to work with normal outreach due to the narrow position and restricted working area.
Despite this, the job was completed in the best way. „Only the kinematics and of the Palazzani XTJ 52 could make it possible to overcome these constraints and achieve the mission,” says the operator.
The features that distinguish the Ragno XTJ 52 are the fast and sharp movements at any height and without rear encumbrance. The multiple combination of set-ups, especially on the strait.
The „Area manager system” automatically adjusts the outreaches, according to stabilization and load (120/230/400 kg), always allowing the rotation over 660 °.
„I work and know this Spider Lift very well as a sole operator for more than two years and this is certainly a big advantage.” Says Mr. Jérôme Augereau, operator of MediaCo.

ABRUZZO ALWAYS HIGHER UP
OUR SPIDER XTJ 52+ RAISES ABRUZZO TO 52 METERS
Abruzzo, a region located in the centre of Italy with L’Aquila as its capital, is mainly surrounded by mountains and hills. Here are the highest peaks of the Apennines mountains, Calderons glacier and the green and fertile valleys. A wide hilly strip, mainly low and sandy, reaches almost as far as the coast of the Adriatic Sea.
During the complex pandemic moment, when distance teaching and smart working boomed, the activities for the installation of 5G systems have been accelerated importantly in this area too.
The installation of 5G systems requires very high working heights, and Palazzani Industrie offers one of the unique suitable access solutions: the Spider Lift XTJ 52+, which the rental company D’Addazio, located in Montesilvano (PE), has just purchased.
This top technological and performing aerial platform offers an operating height of 52 meters, an outreach of 19.5 meters and a capacity of 400 kg.
This mighty Spider fulfils its tasks also thanks to the 980 kg hydraulic which can be quickly mounted in place of the basket and operates with precisions through the same controls of the Spider Lifts and thanks to the Can Bus system. This equipment is among the most requested as it is essential for many aerial operations.
The Can Bus system of this model gives the platform general comfortable smooth and precise movements and it ensures time and fuel savings of more than 20% in respect to the previous standard system.
This XTJ 52+ was purchased also with the PalConnect system, which provides remote assistance, geolocation and web management of many functions relating to the operation of the platform; an important feature for a modern and efficient company like D’Addazio.
„We’ve celebrated the arrival of this prestigious machine with my collaborators ” says Mr. D’Addazio, owner of the company in Abruzzo, „We have some jobs in Telecomps application to be undertaken immediately, and we are also sure that the Italian Superbonus funds for houses restructuring activities will give us a lot to do in the coming months” says Mr. D ‘Addazio.
So we’ll see this technological giant soar in the skies of Abruzzo soon.
