ESAF 2019: the entire DIECI range at work!

300,000 visitors expected, over 70 hectares of sports facilities, services, dining areas, tensile structures and camping areas, and above all the largest temporary arena in the world, with an area of 5 hectares, 270 metres in diameter, a circumference of 850 metres, 18 metre-high stands and a capacity of 56,500 seats: we are talking about ESAF, the Federal Wrestling and Alpine Games Festival, which this year takes place in Zug, near Zurich, on 23–25 August 2019.

Genoa, rebirth of a city

Work recently began on the demolition of buildings under the eastern section of Morandi Bridge in Genoa, a difficult but necessary first step in the delicate process of rebuilding this vital infrastructure. The bridge collapsed due to a structural failure on 14 August 2018, depriving the north-western Italian seaport of a major transportation artery and one of its most symbolic landmarks.

BACK on the TRACK!

We saw them last year, under a changeable and occasionally stormy sky, and they were back this year, gleaming in the gorgeous spring sunlight as they performed the same valuable service: the DIECI vehicles supplied to the rescue team of the Circuit de Catalunya motorsport race track were in action during the first round of the World Rallycross Championship, as well as in the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The best results in BAUMA’s 65-year history

Record BAUMA attracts more than 620,000 visitors: it was with this headline that the organisers’ press release summed up the overall positive impression among exhibitors and visitors, which was also confirmed by Dieci CEO Ciro Correggi, who personally attended the trade fair in Munich: "Yes, the turnout at the DIECI stand was so big that we were constantly busy, with hardly a minute free.

Two real SEA WOLVES!

Thanks to their frequent appearances in popular children’s stories by the likes of Enid Blyton and Jules Verne, not to mention numerous comic books, lighthouses are still evocative of gripping sea adventures, sailing ships and messages in bottles.

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going”

Last year we reported on the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW), which selected our ICARUS 40.14 to assist its local teams stationed all over Germany.

By Jupiter, it's snowing!

This past winter saw some decidedly unpredictable weather: while rainfall was generally scarce south of the Alps, Northern Europe was hit hard by a series of low-pressure systems that brought heavy snowfall even at sea level.

A ZEUS in Campbell’s Cove

In the heart of The Rocks, the oldest and most historic district of Sydney, renovation works have been completed on Campbell's Cove, a small and picturesque bay located between the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, two of the city’s iconic landmarks.

Safety FIRST!

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." This famous quotation, widely attributed to Abraham Lincoln, extols the importance of thorough preparation before undertaking any task.

A strange-looking, trailblazing Pegasus

Si dice che nelle popolazioni di montagna, a causa delle particolari condizioni ambientali, l’ingegno sia particolarmente sviluppato. Sembra sia vero a giudicare dalle molteplici attività della eclettica Dart Engineering, una azienda di Queenstown, nel sud della Nuova Zelanda, dove le Alpi Meridionali raggiungono quasi i 4000 metri.

A construction telehandler for Korean skyscrapers

Confined spaces and great heights: our Pegasus telehandler is at its best on busy South Korean construction sites

How the Pegasus telehandler can replace a fixed crane

For the 2019 Championship, the building of the VIP grandstand was entrusted to the Nüssli Group, a company specialising in the construction of temporary structures for major international events. For the Lauberhornrennen, Nüssli successfully used our Pegasus 40.25 construction telehandler in place of a conventional crane, thereby improving its productivity in various ways.

An almost agricultural Pegasus

We often hear the Amazon Basin described as the "Green Lung of the World"; a vast biological sanctuary of almost 7 million square kilometres, necessary for maintaining the ecological balance of the entire planet.

Never too high

Hessen is rightly considered the greenest region of Germany: as much as 42% of its territory, consisting mainly of hills and low mountain ranges, is covered by forests. The region is also home to numerous rivers (the Fulda, the Lahn, the Eder, the Weser, the Rhine and the Main) and many well-tended gardens that surround both historic buildings and private homes.

The AGRI MAX: an all-in-one ground crew

New Zealand is a strange and beautiful country. We have seen wonderful glimpses of it in numerous films, including The Lord of the Rings. A country only slightly smaller than Italy (and curiously with the same boot shape) but inhabited by just 4.5 million people, of whom 87% are concentrated in the cities.
