We are proud to announce the arrival of the first Liftra Blade Skylark. Once it has been run through testing, it will ship out to the customer.
The Blade Skylark is designed for vertical replacement of blades and blade bearings, and works with both the LT1000 and LT1200 Liftra Self-Hoisting Cranes for craneless blade exchange, as well as with conventional cranes. As the yoke grabs the blade vertically instead of horizontally, the required hook height for conventional cranes is lowered.
Blade Skylark can rotate blades 90 degrees, can operate in wind speeds up to 12 m/s, and is designed for use both onshore and offshore. It has a maximum lifting capacity of 12 tons, however WLL can be increased upon request. A simple adapter makes it easy to configure the Blade Skylark to fit multiple blade types.
