Shuttlelift introduces SB 120

first_img“We are able to design it to accommodate even larger capacities if requested,” said Kurt Minten, Shuttlelift’s director of industrial sales. “We think our customers will find that the new SB 120 is ideally suited to today’s marketplace, in which components are getting larger, and plant managers are looking for a more cost-effective way to do business. The crane has been designed with manoeuverability and travel speeds in mind, as well as lower maintenance costs, when compared to conventional crawler cranes. With the load hanging directly underneath the single beam, the capacity is never dictated by a load chart or range diagram, which easily can be misinterpreted on a boom crane, says Shuttlelift. Other important features include a standard wireless remote control to improve operational safety and aid manoeuverability.  All-wheel steering, plus additional drive motors to negotiate steeper inclines can be added to the SB 120. “We’re very excited about the new SB 120 crane, because we firmly believe it will revolutionise material handling for our customers,” claimed Minten. “They will spend less time and money handling their loads, which means better efficiency, improved profitability, and new growth opportunities for their businesses.” www.shuttlelift.comlast_img read more

First charges filed in Mueller investigation

first_img Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Published: October 27, 2017 9:07 PM EDT Updated: October 27, 2017 9:11 PM EDT First charges filed in Mueller investigation SHARE Washington (CNN) A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment.Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter.On Friday, top lawyers who are helping to lead the Mueller probe, including veteran prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, were seen entering the court room at the DC federal court where the grand jury meets to hear testimony in the Russia investigation.Reporters present saw a flurry of activity at the grand jury room, but officials made no announcements.Shortly after President Donald Trump abruptly fired then-FBI Director James Comey, Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel. Mueller took the reins of a federal investigation that Comey first opened in July 2016 in the middle of the presidential campaign.Mueller is authorized to investigate “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation,” according to Rosenstein’s order.The special counsel’s investigation has focused on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as obstruction of justice by the President, who might have tried to impede the investigation. CNN reported that investigators are scrutinizing Trump and his associates’financial ties to Russia.Mueller’s team has also examined foreign lobbying conducted by former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and others. His team has issued subpoenas for documents and testimony to a handful of figures, including some people close to Manafort, and others involved in the Trump Tower meeting between Russians and campaign officials.Last year, the Comey-led investigation secured approval from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to monitor the communications of Manafort, as well as former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, as part of the investigation into Russian meddling.In addition to Mueller’s probe, three committees on Capitol Hill are conducting their own investigations.CNN’s Marshall Cohen, Mary Kay Mallonee and Laura Robinson contributed to this report.last_img read more
