WHEN HISTORICITY INTEGRATES WITH TECHNOLOGY A PALAZZANI SPIDER STANDS OUT AMONG THE GREEN OF TUSCANY
The immense uncontaminated spaces, the historic architecture and the gastronomic choice that can be tasted in Tuscany have made this territory one of the most popular destinations for tourists coming from all over the world. The historicity of this region comes, among the others, from the Florentine Romanesque style whose peculiarities are evident from the survival and recovery of elements of Roman classicism. For this reason, the typical features of this area are the narrow alleys that surround the cities, small streets and passages that lead to large squares, such as the famous “Piazza dei Miracoli”. Operating in a similar context is by no means simple, but nothing is impossible, in fact Palazzani Spider Lift XTJ 43+ is of great help for this territory. Its high designing technology as well as its countless operational functions make this Spider Lift unique in the tracked access panorama and perfect for moving around in total safety.
The main data are: operating height of 43 meters, an outreach of 18 meters and a capacity of 330 kg, or three operators. All this is controlled by a Can Bus system, a sophisticated system with variable displacement pump that allows up to 4 simultaneous movements by keeping the engine at minimum speed with important costs and noise savings. The machine is mainly used for aerial work, but it is also used to lift materials, thanks to the 500kg optional hydraulic winch which can quickly replace the cage of the machine helps to lift materials. The fast telescopic jib, combined with the winch, makes work easy, fast and safe.
„We are happy with the arrival of this powerful tracked platform” declares Mr. Luigi Grandi of the Grandi Sollevamenti Company, “we’ve chosen it since we esteem the Palazzani product, synonymous with quality, efficiency and superior technology. We immediately found all of this when the machine arrived.

DEVELOPMENT OF THE SALES DIRECTION OF SPIDER LIFTS IN RUSSIA
About 5 years ago, the demand for the operation of buildings increased distinctly, and therefore, VERTEX decided to separate the sales of spider lifts in a separate direction.
“The sale of Spider Lifts in Russia is a rather long-term process and requires a more sophisticated approach in terms of engineering and economic justification. Consequently, the sale of a spider lift often starts at the beginning of construction and ends after the construction of the facility where the equipment will be operated is completed” says Vertex Sales Staff.
VERTEX company offers a comprehensive solution and support to its customers at all stages of construction of the project, where the equipment will subsequently be operated. Since the foundation in 2012, they have been working with satisfaction Palazzani Industrie S.P.A. for the deliveries of spider lifts.
Last year, 13 units of spider lifts were imported to our country, 9 of which are Palazzani spiders of various models with working heights from 19 up to 39 m.
Among he most particular experiences, for example, there is the supply of a customized machine designed in cooperation with the designers of nuclear power plants, Palazzani engineers and Vertex team, on the basis of the TSJ 39 model; a special lift was developed to work inside the reactor halls of the Leningrad and Belarusian nuclear power plants.
We asked several questions to the Leading Manager of this sales direction, Evgeny Babich:
Evgeny, what is the differences between spider lifts and regular articulated and telescopic lifts?
“Palazzani spider lifts can be used almost anywhere, even in situations where regular lifts cannot be used. They work independently, powered by either a diesel engine or an electric motor, from batteries or from a single-phase outlet. The equipment does not emit exhaust gases and does not make much noise in closed and crowded rooms, it is easily stabilized in confined spaces.
Spider lifts are able to move easily off-road and on slopes, such as stairs and ramps, etc. Due to its small overall dimensions, the equipment passes through ordinary doorways and due to its low weight can work on any delicate surface and floors with low load capacity. They are safe and easy to use”.
What development prospects do you see in the direction of selling spider lifts in the next few years?
“Over the past few years, in our country there has been an active construction of social and cultural facilities (concert halls, sports facilities, shopping malls, etc.), the culture of operation (facility direction) is increasing, more and more often building owners are thinking about subsequent maintenance. So there is a great potential in the development of the sales direction of spider lifts and we want to be in the trend of the lifting equipment market segment”.
Which Palazzani models are the most popular at your customers?
“The most popular heights in Russia are 19-22m and 27-32m. This range includes models of Palazzani TXZ 190, TSX 225, TSJ 27, TSJ 30.1, XTJ 32 lifts”.
What specific measures are you going to implement to develop the market for spider lifts in Russia?
“We have conducted market research, and in the near future we are planning to open a rent direction for spider lifts, as well as expanding the staff in this direction in order to maximize the great opportunities of the Russian market, increase the amount of work in this direction in terms of search for potential customers to create demand for this special lifting equipment”.
