The garbage containers raised with counterbalanced cranes

We are used to see garbage bins being lifted, overturned and emptied by collection trucks. Yet, bins also get damaged and need to be taken to a service station for maintenance. Amia, the municipal multiservice company of Verona province, has enquired AXA to find a solution. We analyzed the clasp the bins are fitted with, and designed a special hook to fasten to it. We customized the crane as well (swivel crane mod. 01B5 electric lifting), to meet Amia’s requirement of 350 kg of capacity with 1000 mm of jib outreach, and increased max height by 200 mm.

Finally, for an easier rotation of the jib arm, we added two handles on the ballast case and two on the mast. We found the right solution with just a little adjustment to standard!
