Venturo Crane Selector Web Tool Pairs Vehicles with Cranes


Venturo® has released a new finder on its website to keep job sites equipped with the proper service cranes. The brand-new Crane Selector utilizes gross vehicle weight, necessary boom length and maximum load capacity to pair vehicles with the most suitable Venturo product.
Venturo cranes are designed for an array of light, moderate and heavy-duty applications, and matching vehicles with the right equipment to meet job requirements improves efficiency and safety on the job site. The innovative Crane Selector is a simple, effective tool to provide operators with the proper crane package.
Each crane, and crane line, is designed for a set of specific uses. Selecting the appropriate crane is an integral step toward more efficient operations and a safer job site. No piece of equipment, even the ideal crane, is 100% foolproof, but an improper product will at best limit performance and at worst endanger workers. The Crane Selector takes some guesswork out of the equation.
This new offering from Venturo joins Venturo Logic Controls™ (VLC) as another recent innovation from the crane manufacturer. The VLC™ Crane Control Management System brings safety, control and reliability to the company’s fully-hydraulic service cranes. This system offers safe, comfortable and smart crane operations by utilizing features like overload protection, a pistol-grip controller and visible safety alerts.
From dependable equipment to state-of-the-art technology, Venturo is ahead of the curve when it comes to safe, effective crane solutions. Try the new Crane Selector tool at www.venturo.com/support/crane-selector. For more information on electric, hydraulic and additional crane options from Venturo, visit www.venturo.com or call 800-226-2238.

2020 Ford Transit rolls out to dealers with new crew van, all-wheel-drive & standard safety tech features


Ford announced today that its 2020 Ford Transit is now available to dealers with plenty of updates including a new crew van, new power sliding door, new seat fabrics, all-wheel drive, 10-speed transmission, standard collision mitigation features and new exterior colors.

Along with cargo van, passenger van, chassis cab and cutaway, a new crew van, which can carry five people in two rows and features side curtain airbags, joins the lineup. Tailored for owners who need to move larger crews plus gear to a job site, the crew van is an enhancement to the 2020 Ford Transit family based on customer feedback.

Exterior updates are subtle but functionally driven. A new power sliding door is available for cargo van and passenger van, while premium high-intensity discharge headlamps with signature LED surround are available.

Three grilles will adorn van, chassis cab and cutaway configurations – a three-bar design with black or chrome bars and an open mesh design for maximum cooling. Vans equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine get a larger grille for maximum cooling. A new interior features durable new fabrics on the seating surfaces, plus myriad cupholders and compartments for storing gear and gadgets.

Grab handles are improved, vents are updated to better direct heated and cooled air, and overall ergonomics are enhanced. Optional swivel front seats are available for the first time in response to recreational vehicle customer requests. The center stack can be optioned two ways – either with a standard 4-inch full-color multifunction display or 8-inch slim-line touch screen display, each with the latest in SYNC 3 plus Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

A 4.2-inch productivity screen in the cluster provides vehicle information and phone call status. SYNC AppLink allows customers to control select apps on the touch screen without plugging in their Android or iOS device. FordPass Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and connectivity for up to 10 devices is standard, along with USB outlets in every row of the passenger van. New Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services, which puts an array of tools at the disposal of fleet managers, is now available.

For the first time, Transit offers an intelligent all-wheel-drive system that’s always on and does not raise the load floor or seat height, making this van configuration as easy to enter and exit as the standard rear-wheel drive model. New and improved powertrains are designed to meet a wide range of customer needs. These include an all-new standard 3.5-liter port fuel direct injection V6 and the proven 3.5-liter EcoBoost gas engine that now features Auto Start-Stop.

Both gas engines can be ordered with dual 250-amp alternators to provide additional power for upfit equipment and are paired with Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission. New standard driver-assist features include Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Post-Collision Braking, LaneKeeping System and auto high-beam headlamps. Additional available features include Adaptive Cruise Control, front and rear split-view camera, adjustable speed limiting and Enhanced Active Park Assist to simplify maneuvering into parallel or reverse perpendicular parking spots.

Available new wheels include a 16-inch heavy duty silver design with black hubcaps, a 16-inch heavy-duty silver steel wheel design, 16- inch forged aluminum wheels and 16-inch heavy-duty forged aluminum wheels. New colors include Agate Black, Diffused Silver and Kapoor Red.
