Some clients have asked why the load capacity limit of our Multiprop has been reduced from 450kg to 300kg. What has happened? What has changed in this tool?
Spoiler: Nothing in the tool has changed. The Multiprop is the same. The same materials, the same mechanism and the same parts. The load capacity too. The results of tests conducted in our own laboratory reach more than 450kg.
What has changed is that this tool has passed the European Conformity process (CE). This is a very rigorous control once met certifies the security requirement of the European Economic Area. One of these requirements is to include a 1.5 security factor.
Applying this CE security factor, the load capacity of the Multiprop becomes 300kg (450kg. /1.5)
Here you can consult the technical sheet showing the details of the security factor and the European Certificate.
