K-HEM Series makes its debut with the model K-HEM 1003 on board of the aerial working platform Spyder DT28 by Cela at the 8th edition of GIS Expo, the Italian trade show for lifting, handling and heavy transport experts. GIS Expo will take place from 7 to 9 October 2021 at Piacenza Expo.

The aerial working platform Spyder DT28 is the outcome of a fruitful collaboration with Cela that has seized the oppurtunity offered by the features of the hybrid unit K-HEM 1003, that perfectly fits the needs of such a machine.

“Always focused on uncompromised innovation and the development of new technologies capable of making our products unique, we are convinced that this is the first step of a long path aimed at reaching increasingly ambitious targets” said Paolo Troni, CEO at Cela.

The internal combustion engine doesn’t require aftertreatment systems. Therefore, the machine’s downtime caused by the regeneration process has been totally eliminated. The electric unit allows for reaching high peaks of power required by the machine, thus guaranteeing a high level of productivity.

“The aerial working platform Spyder DT28 is the perfect example of the power to work together: it represents the outcome of a complete integration between the hybrid unit and the machine aimed at maximizing productivity and minimizing the battery pack size” declared Massimiliano Bonanni, General Manager – Product Strategy at Kohler Engines.
