Falcon Lifts A/S has added the new Falcon Sigma product series, which includes five smaller spider lifts with a unique boom design that resembles the series’ namesake: the Greek letter Σ.

With working heights from 44 to 88 feet, the new models expand the lower range of the working heights in the company’s portfolio – models can now reach from 44 to 170 feet, according to Falcon Lifts.

The Falcon Sigma machines are track-mounted, and the company offers all-electric, lithium-battery-powered versions, in addition to hybrid models.

After dialogue with long-term customers, Falcon Lifts said, they discovered a need to take features normally reserved for larger, more expensive models and install them in a smaller package for applications closer to the ground.

“We have now the capabilities, the required scale and the engineering know-how needed to introduce and supply smaller spider lifts,” said Brian Falck Schmidt, sales director at Falcon Lifts.

The Falcon Sigma series is just the start; the company announced it will launch additional new Falcon models later in 2021.
