Jan. 4, 2011 – Maeda USA will display five fully compliant mini-cranes with new attachments at ConExpo. Models range from 3,800-lb to 10,800-lb. capacity with lift heights to 68 feet.
Maeda says its 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. All Maeda mini-cranes meet ASME and EPA requirements for North America.
“This is the first time fully compliant Maeda mini-cranes have been displayed at ConExpo, “explains 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-inches.
The company will also display new attachments that expand the utilization of their 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 will also be shown which converts the power supply when operating electrically.
Maeda will be exhibiting at booth 440 in the Gold Lot at ConExpo, taking place March 22 – 26 at the Las Vegas Convention Centre in Las Vegas, Nev. The line can also be previewed by visiting www.maedausa.com.
