Maeda Offers Four Mini-Crawler Cranes in 2014
Maeda USA now offers four mini-crawler cranes that customers can use with confidence due to Maeda's compliance with all OSHA and ASME B30.5 standards for mobile cranes, and engines that conform to current EPA emissions standards. The outrigger-equipped “spider” mini-cranes can fit through doorways for indoor use, can reach as high as 68-ft. (20.7 m), have rated capacities up to 4.2 tons (3.8 t), and specialize in limited access and tight work space lifting.
Three models of the MC series include units with dual power (diesel/electric and gasoline/LPG). A new optional auxiliary winch with high rope capacity allows for work from rooftops as far as 330 ft. (100.5 m) below the machine. Other options include a jib style searcher hook boom extension, a fixed mounted man basket, fly jib attachment and a remote controlled manipulator vacuum device for placement of glass, steel plate or smooth stone. All MC models come standard with wireless radio remote control, moment limiter safety systems with load indicator, heavy duty black or non-marking white rubber tracks, three sheave hook blocks and various other features.
The company also will offer the LC785M-8, a 5.4 ton (4.9 t) capacity telescoping boom crawler. The no-outrigger design offers a 67 ft. (20 m) maximum tip height and near zero tail swing. The LC model is similar in size and design to the popular mini-excavators, except equipped with a telescopic boom and hook. The LC785M-8 has a front blade attachment and stowed swing away fly-jib attachment.
