Acknowledged as the heavy lift solution, platform cranes are even better with small loads such as 2 x 18k and can outperform any z-boom’s height and radius specifications. Modern condors come equipped with micro-processor controlled safety systems that are designed to sense overcapacity and will shut themselves down unexpectedly when overloaded.
 
Starlite's top-hung baskets have no restrictions. Our baskets can take full capacity on any side of the basket, while condors are limited to full rated unrestricted capacity only when lamps are mounted to the backboard, lamps mounted in any other positions on the basket call for de-rating of load capacity according to the manufacturers specifications . In addition, the jib equipped condors revert to 500 lbs rating if the jib is turned off center.
