Mini crawlers join hire fleet

The rubber-track mini crawler crane can be used in confined spaces, with the larger and more unusual MC405 model lifting up to 3.8 tonnes, and the smaller version hoisting up to 2.8t. For use in building, construction and landscaping, the diesel-powered units can be used in many situations like concrete panelling, sheeting, cladding, glass installation, plant maintenance, relocating valuable art works, and craning heavy furniture into buildings through windows. The rare MC405 mini crawler crane lifts up to 16.8m on the standard boom sections. At a 2.7m radius it can lift 3.83t, while at a 3.5m radius the unit can hoist up to 3.03t. The larger model’s maximum working radius is 16m, which can haul 210kg. According to Kennards, the unit has hydrostatic transmission, stepless forward and reverse and pentagonal-shaped automatic five-stage telescopic boom. The unit also has many electronic safety features. Meanwhile, the smaller “super-slim” MC285 model can be transported on a trailer using a medium-sized 4WD or truck. The MC285 model has a lifting height of 8.7m, with a load capacity of 2.82t at a 1.4m radius.
