Maeda mini cranes aid helicopter repair

02 November 2020

While ideally done in the comfort of a hanger, helicopter and airplane maintenance and repair is often times done out in the field. Helicopters that needed to be maintained while fighting wildfires in the west couldn’t go in to the shop. Maintenance crews were able to meet the helicopter in the middle of a field, with a Maeda Mini Crane, and perform the necessary maintenance needed to keep these copters up in the air.

Maeda Mini Cranes can be used at the shop or in the field to perform maintenance on helicopters and planes of all shapes and sizes and are easy to transport, maneuver and use, with the power to lift up to 13,000 pounds in unconventional and difficult situations, the company said.
