Goodbye Winches

DuraTruss Now Offers Winch-Free Goliath Stands

Kerkrade, NL – (For Immediate Release) – A good crank stand should lift a heavy load, not be a heavy load to lift. This is the revolutionary philosophy behind the DT-ST Goliath Stands offered by DuraTruss. Featuring an ingenious cograil design in place of the traditional (and heavy!) cable winch, the new stands offer greater lifting power and a lighter weight along with fewer maintenance issues.

“We are proud to announce that we have entered into an agreement with Goliath to distribute this incredibly efficient product,” said Dirk Kast, CEO of DuraTruss. “Our DT-ST stands will make life much easier for our customers, since they are much lighter to lift and carry on a job site; plus they eliminate problems with broken winch cables on crank stands.” Made with lightweight aluminum components, the GT- ST stands range from 50 kg to 200 kg in size, which makes them cost efficient to ship as well as easy to move around at a job site. Yet, despite the fact that they are relatively light themselves, the stands are capable of some very heavy lifting. The largest model in the line can lift up to 5 meters, an impressive and unique achievement for any stand in its class.

The hard working stands also offer an unprecedented level of safety, thanks to their special auto break system. All of the stands in the line are made in compliance with the German BGV-C1 regulations for event safety, and most are TÜV approved by TÜV Saarland.
