Epsilon Recycling & Timber Cranes

EPSILON recycling and timber cranes adhere meticulously to the stringent requirements outlined in the European machinery directive. This directive sets comprehensive standards for loaders, encompassing every facet from design and calculation to installation and final handover to the customer. One of the cornerstones of our safety measures lies in overload protection and load-holding valves. These cranes are equipped with both electronic and mechanical safeguards, ensuring that even in the event of hose bursts or rips, load-holding valves prevent any sudden deepening of the load.

To tackle uneven ground with finesse, stabilising cylinders, complemented by pendulum plates, level out surfaces with up to a 10º incline in each direction. In line with regulatory demands, we incorporate additional warning and safety devices while ensuring practical feedback mechanisms for operators. Our stabiliser control system, enhanced by limit switches, serves a dual purpose. It not only verifies the crane's transport position but also guarantees stability during operation, safeguarding both equipment and operators.
