Today, engineers from Barnhart Crane & Rigging are expected to announce a major breakthough that will completely revolutionize the heavy lifting industry. In an afternoon press conference, Barnhart will reveal an electromagnetic levitation lifting device that can be used to lift and transport loads up to 1200 metric tons using anti-gravitational forces and completely radical rigging arrangements.

The transporter, known as the Stulti Aprilis, will be able to hover up to heights of 8,000 meters and will have a standard operating altitude of 50 to 100 meters.  “To date we have only successfully tested the craft at a ceiling of 8,000 meters and with only certain farm animals. Truth is, we don’t think there are any restrictions on its altitude range, though certainly its lifting capacity is higher at lower altitudes,” said Dr. I.M. Awisenhiemer, lead project scientist on Barnhart’s Anti-Grav Project.

The Anti-Grav Project is from Barnhart’s Deep Six team, tasked with figuring out revolutionary ways to move cargo without any rigging.
