This anonymous Locatelli Gril 935 could be photographed on a construction site in Switzerland where a new factory was built. It is an used crane from Ediltrasporti from Genestrerio (CH).

It is a 35-tonne crane, installed on a 2-axle CVS crane carrier. The crane carrier is powered by a Daimler-Benz OM 362 LA, a 5.7-liter 6-cylinder diesel engine with a power of 143 kW (192 hp). The crane carrier has a 4x4x4-drive line where both axles are driven and are steerable. On the road, the crane can reach a driving speed of 70 km/h.

The undercarriage is 7.23 meters long and 2.49 meters wide. This type of undercarriage was also used by other crane manufacturers, like Grove and Marchetti.

The engine is located in the rear of the chassis, during the transport over the road is the boom parked over the rear and is the counterweight hanging above the cabin of the crane carrier.

The outrigger base measures 6.2 x 5.8 meters.

The crane has two sections that can be extended with use of a rope, the last section must be pinned manually and remains extended here.
