High weight capacity and innovative safety features help heavy-duty hydraulic service crane fit applications in several industries

Cincinnati, Ohio, August, 2023 – Venco Venturo, an industry leader in the engineering, service and sales of work-ready service cranes, truck bodies, hoists and accessories since 1952, is underscoring the importance of safety and power in heavy-duty crane technology with the HT60KX.

We are excited to roll out the HT60KX crane,” Venco Venturo Vice President, Sales and Marketing Ian Lahmer said. “This crane gives operators a perfect balance of rugged performance, power and safety.”

A unique feature on the HT60KX is the proprietary Venturo Logic Controls™ (VLC) system. This electronic crane control management system provides redundant safety features for crane operators with a wireless, pistol-grip remote control and overload protection to improve operator safety. An LCD screen alerts operators to potential dangers and displays key information for the boom angle and capacity percentages. As an additional safety measure, green, yellow and red lights are mounted on the boom to indicate different alert conditions.

 “The VLC™ system is a game-changer for operators,” Lahmer said. “It alerts operators to any dangers and keeps the crane and truck in the most stable position to get the work done, which is especially important when moving very heavy material.”

The HT60KX is one of Venturo’s strongest cranes, with a high weight capacity and full-hydraulic operation to lengthen its duty cycle. Rated at a 60,000-ft-lb capacity with 25 and 30 ft reach options, the versatile HT60KX can serve many jobs and industries.

“We know demanding jobs in industries like construction, agriculture and truck repair need dependable equipment,” Lahmer said. “That’s why our heavy-duty hydraulic cranes like the HT60KX are designed to be safe, long-lasting and easy to use.”
