Fully Electric Carry-Deck Cranes Are Designed for all Jobsites, Even Restricted Locations
Public and private sector crane users are encouraged to visit Zero Emission Equipment, LLC, in the Gold Lot, booth G1412, at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, March 7-11, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada. With an all-electric operating system, the company's Zeecrane carry-deck cranes are ideal for operations that require lower- to no-emission equipment to comply with jobsite environmental requirements. The load-lifting, self-propelled cranes are easy to maneuver, even in tight spaces.
The Zeecrane, which produces zero emissions, is available in two models: the 4500, with a maximum lifting capacity of 9,000 lbs., and the 9000, with a maximum capacity of 18,000 lbs. Compared to contemporary industrial cranes, Zeecranes have longer booms, a modern design and offer more capacity. The unique carry-deck cranes incorporate an all-electric operating system that uses maintenance-free batteries to power the machine. The zero-emission power system is ideal for all construction sites, including those that require low-noise equipment, as well as enclosed environments or confined spaces where an internal-combustion engine cannot be used, such as manufacturing facilities, warehouses and oil refineries.
High-efficiency hydraulic pumps and motors ensure plenty of power is available to operate the cranes' functions. The integrated energy management system distributes power, allowing the cranes to work a full eight-hour shift at normal operating cycles. The charging system uses standard 208-240 VAC power to recharge the machines overnight. The on-board charging system uses the latest technology and is included as standard equipment.
The Zeecrane 4500 features a sheave height of 27-ft. 9-in. on the main boom and 35-ft. 4-in. with the jib attached. The multi-position offset jib is handy for use in confined areas. For example, if a tank needs to be hoisted inside a workspace with a restricted height, the offset jib-equipped crane can make the lift. The boom rotates 360° continuously for additional maneuverability. Additionally, the Zeecranes are designed with a self-aligning hexagonal boom, using externally adjustable wear pads for proper boom section alignment and easy maintenance. The planetary winch is designed with a low-profile turret assembly for minimal obstruction of the operating area.
With a 5-ft. 1-in. width and 14-ft. travel length, the Zeecrane 4500 is narrow enough to fit through a standard double door. At 6-ft. 9-in. tall and weighing about 8,000 lbs., the crane is short and light enough to navigate through parking structures. With 9-in. of ground clearance, loading and unloading from a trailer and maneuvering on uneven, off-highway terrain – including steep grades – is not an issue. An integrated overload protection system and display allows for safe operation within the designated load-chart radius.
