Champion Hoist Revolutionizes Scissor Lifts with Weight-Saving Design Made of Strenx® Performance Steel
US based Champion Hoist and Equipment takes the checkered flag with an efficient, first-to-market scissor lift designed to feature STRENX® high performance steel manufactured by SSAB. Champion’s lighter model not only delivers high yield strength to manage the heaviest loads, but also maintains structural integrity, while reducing overall gross vehicle weight by nearly a quarter ton.
For many fleet managers and commercial truck owners, gross vehicle weight determines the class that their trucks may legally operate. The heavier the truck, the higher the class and the more restrictions are applied. Champion’s customers like the North Carolina Department of Transportation benefit significantly from a lighter class for shorter hauls using less fuel, and heavier loads are easily lifted without all the extra weight.
