Maeda USA will display five fully compliant mini-cranes with new attachments in booth 440 in the gold lot. All Maeda mini-cranes meet ASME and EPA requirements for North America. Models range from 3,800 to 10,800 lb. (1,723 to 4,900 kg) capacity with lift heights to 68 ft. (21 m).
“This is the first time fully compliant Maeda mini-cranes have been displayed at ConExpo,” said Tony Inman, president of Maeda USA, western hemisphere distributor for Maeda Japan.
“The mini-crane method of material handling has been successfully proven in our territory and the market is finding many applications for smaller cranes,” according to Inman.
Maeda cranes can fit through openings as small as 24 in. (61 cm).
The company also will display new attachments that expand the utilization of its mini-crane line including a man-basket, jib attachments, a glass manipulator and a searcher hook, which is a boom tip extension arm for lifts where there are overhead restrictions. A new accessory transformer package also will be shown which converts the power supply when operating electrically.
Maeda mini-cranes are being used in many non-traditional roles including curtain wall and glass handling for commercial construction, steel erection, lifting inside high rise structures and virtually any lifting role where space is limited.
