Magni Telescopic Handlers was crowned winner of the 15th edition of the annual LLEAP (Leadership in Lifting Equipment and Aerial Platforms) GOLD award, presented by Lift and Access magazine, which provides recognition to the most innovative new products in the lifting sector. The Magni model which received this award is the RTH 6.51, from the RTH range of rotating telescopic handlers.
This award is usually given to equipment, support products and innovative services introduced in the preceding twelve months. However, since the pandemic caused the LLEAP 2020 edition to be cancelled, this year the award was open to products introduced in the previous 24 months. As such, this year the awards were given to products introduced to the North American market between 1 June 2019 and 31 May 2021 and which are currently available in North America.
This award also took into consideration new products and services which already existed in other markets but were new for North America, or existing ones which were redesigned or modified extensively and reintroduced.
In total, awards were given to products in six categories: MEWPS, vehicle-mounted aerial lifts, material handlers, MCWPs, features and components, and aftermarket support products and services.
The LLEAP jury was made up of experts in the sector involved in the operation, rental, sale and support of aerial platforms and lifting equipment. The judges focused on innovative features and technologies, perceived value, productivity for owners and users, and general benefits for industry, owners and users.
