This post is a follow up of my other post on the blade lifter.
When I’ve been discussing about this solution with the other guy in the business 3 or 4 years ago, they told me it was something utopic, a “nice to have, but still a dream”.
Well, apparently now the blade lifter arrived, and it’s here to stay - and with a more aggressive configuration.
We’ve used it in a project in central America together with GES, a company specialized in wind and solar project, who bought one.
I’ve also discovered that another transport company in Italy (SIA – they are specialized in WTGs components transport) bought one in August 2014.
Clearly, this unlock the power of the blade lifter in Europe: I’m sure that in some complicated situations, it will make sense to move it from a country to the other.
There is a very good post on the company web describing this solution – have a look.
They’ve also done a very professional video (embedded in this post).
Resuming the key features:
- Produced by Scheuerle
- Maximum angle 60°
- Maximum capacity is 25 tons
- Maximum slope: 23% (paved road) / 18% (dirt road)

Enjoy the video!
