Maeda USA will display five fully compliant mini-cranes with new attachments at the ConExpo show in Las Vegas, 22-26 March, 2011. All Maeda mini-cranes meet ASME and EPA requirements for North America.
Models range from 3,800lb to 10,800lb capacity with lift heights to 68ft. “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.” Maeda cranes can fit through openings as small as 24 inches.
The company will also 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 will also be shown which converts the power supply when operating electrically.
