Features include continuous 360 degrees slew, radio remote controls and adjustable width tracks that extend from 1.41 to 1.9 metres for improved stability while travelling. It is also equipped with the company’s remote diagnostic Platform Basket Telematics (PBT) system, and similar to other Spider T models the platform can be replaced with a winch to create a light duty spider crane.

The 39 T offers a stowed length of 8.91 metres, an overall width of 1.41 metres and is just under two metres high. The outrigger footprint ranges from a spread/width of between 2.99 and 5.23 metres while the length of the 'footprint' decreases correspondingly from 8.83 down to 5.59 metres. The machine can lift itself to an undertrack clearance of 600mm with a clear under machine width at that height of 2.5 metres, allowing a truck or trailer to be reversed underneath for easy loading. Overall weight is just over 11.9 tonnes.
