Italian crawler lifts manufacturer AlmaCrawler has appointed Inspectec as its sales and service partner in Ireland.
Based in Kildare and with more than 20 years’ worth of experience in the industry, Inspectec delivers skilled and independent inspections of all types of machinery and also provides construction equipment consultancy. They will be proposing AlmaCrawler’s range of self-levelling scissor lifts and telescopic boom lifts on crawlers to the Irish market, as well as provide full service to AlmaCrawler products in Ireland.
Inspectec’s Sales Director said
Commenting on the new partnership, sales director for Inspectec, Dan Daly said the following: “We are delighted to be the approved dealer for the complete AlmaCrawler range for the whole of Ireland. AlmaCrawler designs and builds a premier machine and we have already sold our first unit with significant interest for more models. I am confident that this relationship between our two companies will help Irish businesses reach new heights”.
Comments from General Manager and Export Area Manager of AlmaCrawler
“We are delighted to be partnering with Inspectec for the sale of AlmaCrawler products in Ireland. This will strengthen our presence, starting with the availability of AlmaCrawler products and spare parts in the country, through expanding our professional customer service with the Inspectec team, to providing a better service for our longstanding and new customers who have chosen or will chose AlmaCrawler products”.
Following a series of virtual negotiations, AlmaCrawler and Inspectec have reached an agreement, both confident that the partnership will be able to offer Irish customers an innovative solution for working at height.
AlmaCrawler export area sales manager Oana Samoila said: “We are very satisfied to further expand our efforts in Ireland and to have entered into this partnership with Inspectec. Every new dealer who joins our network receives comprehensive support in terms of marketing and sales, technical training and the after-sales process management, so they can immediately start working competently with us”.
AlmaCrawler has been constantly growing since it rolled out its first self-levelling scissor lift in 2013, and with more than 30 dealers worldwide and further new appointments in the future, the company expects to consolidate its European markets and improve overall market share.
Almac has launched its new 16 m, 100% electric, zero emission, self-propelled telescopic boom: the JIBBI 1670 LTH.
Suitable for operating in environments where low noise and exhaust gas emissions are required, the 16-metre JIBBI 1670 LTH electric platform is equipped with a high-performance 300Ah-48V lithium battery and two 20Ah-48V chargers, which allow rapid recharging in just 6 hours, thus reducing downtime.
While maintaining the same operating performance as the EVO version (including: maximum working height of 16 m and 9.8 m moving height, an operating reach of 8.5 m, as well as an undercarriage with four different configurations), the LTH model has the advantage of operating without emissions by exploiting hydraulic power for all aerial movements.
In which places is it suggested to use the self-propelled JIBBI 1670 LTH?
The JIBBI 1670 LTH is particularly suitable for indoor, outdoor and sensitive areas, such as for example:
- Shopping centres
- Residential areas
- Urban construction sites
- Historical centres
The self-propelled JIBBI 1670 LTH is a machine that thanks to its qualities allows to have a lower environmental impact and at the same time to safeguard the health of the operators in case of long-term use.
Almac’s innovative electric machines
To satisfy the needs of customers operating in sectors that require the utmost attention to the environment, the Almac team has designed and developed, beyond the JIBBI 1670 LTH, various types of machinery equipped with high performance batteries of the latest generation or lithium batteries.
The development of electrical machinery by Almac’s team aims to offer its customers the possibility to choose zero emission self-propelled crawler lifts, suitable for working both indoors and outdoors.
Among Almac machines with a green soul, it is possible to find:
- The crawler scissor lift BIBI 1090-BL ELC and the self-propelled telescopic boom JIBBI 1250 ELC with electrically powered;
- The self-propelled telescopic boom JIBBI 1250 LTH with lithium battery.
Thanks to these versions of electric self-propelled platforms, Almac is able to satisfy the needs of its customers who are looking for high performance machinery to carry out work at height in complete safety, without neglecting respect for the surrounding environment.
Summer company shutdown with operational customer service
Almac will be closed from 3 to 14 August, to restart operations on Monday 17 August.
As always, Almac’s customer service will be operational and available during the company’s closing days.

JIBBI 1670 EVO: the evolution of JT-LINE
AlmaCrawler presents the new JIBBI 1670 EVO Self-propelled Telescopic Crawler Boom
JIBBI 1670 EVO represents the evolution of the JT series, not only in terms of working height but also in terms of technology, versatility and innovation. This new addition stands out not only due to its maximum working height of 16 m, but also for the operating reach that ranges from 6.7 to 8.5 m and the possibility for the operator to travel up to a moving height of 9 m.
Introducing a new feature, a variable undercarriage track width with different track-opening configurations that allow the operator to work in narrow spaces but then stabilize to achieve full working height – operating track widths: 1.35 m, 1.90 m, 2.20 m and 2.45 m.
A newly introduced feature, born as a result of our research & development department’s work, is the new remote connected control panel that through the dedicated APP “MyAlmac Control Panel” allows the continuous monitoring of the machine’s service status, while offering the possibility to interact/modify the operating parameters adapting them to the requirements of your fleets.
Like our previous models, the JIBBI 1670 EVO uses the automatic levelling system “Dynamic Levelling”, our globally recognized technology, able to compensate gradients of up to 22° (40%) during transport conditions travelling and the Pro-Active Levelling technology, which works to cover the “driving at height” operations.
Equipped with a 3-cylinder Yanmar diesel engine (14.1kW – 19.2 HP), this self-propelled unit has a total weight of only 3850 kg with a ground load of 3.1 KN/m2. Its compact size allows the machine to be used in restricted spaces, thus ensuring ease of use and movement. In transport conditions JIBBI 1670 EVO showcases a minimum width of 1.35 m, a stowed height of 1.99 m and a full length of 5.17 m which can be further reduced to only 4.40 m by quickly and easily dismounting the basket. The standard basket is 1.4 m wide basket (designed to allow the operator to position it in the same width of the machine), but we also offer the option of a slightly wider 1.8 m basket, designed to favour the comfort of the operators. Both versions have the possibility to rotate +/- 70° while guaranteeing a maximum capacity of 230 kg. The optional configuration is completed by the 200 Series Winch Kit already presented and promoted on the JIBBI 1250 and 1270 range.
What technologies are used?
Like all the AlmaCrawler products, the JIBBI 1670 EVO is standardly equipped with cutting edge technology that enhances its performance mix, combining weight, dimensions, working height and operating reach and establishing it as a revolutionary product for the world of lifting, designed to simplify, speed up and increase productivity while catering and satisfying safety standards for operators:
- DWP – Dynamic Working Performance, dynamic, real-time management of the performance of the machine based on the real working conditions. The system, subject to patent application, operates by simultaneously analyzing the slope parameters of the ground, the configuration of the roadway used and the instantaneous load in the basket, dynamically determining the best available working performance so that the operator can remain focused on his work at height.
- Safe-Lock System, a system to prevent track spillage from the tensioning wheels, both toothed.
- Ultrasonic anti-collision system, to protect operators in the basket with anti-crush barrier function in the two directions of movement of the basket (in the upper and lower part). This system protects operators from unforeseen and accidental impacts.
The JIBBI 1670 EVO unveiled at the new Crawler Park, a Demo Area directly located at the new Almac headquarters in Viadana, during three Live Events broadcasted on all the official social channels of the company, on June 9th, 10th, 11th.
