By Shiffler D.Ann30 March 2016
Maeda will be displaying eight mini crane models, including three North American models from the MC mini crane series – the MC285-2, MC305-2, and MC405 with spider leg design – will be displayed in various power packages and with various options.
Also the newly developed MK1033 with articulated telescopic luffing jib, and optional winch will be exhibited. The MK1033 with its articulated boom and jib attachment, lifting directly from the jib point similar to a knuckle boom, is one of Maeda’s latest additions to the range and completely unique, the manufacturer said. It is expected to be available in the North American market late 2016 or early 2017.
For the Latin American market Maeda will also display two additional telescopic boom crawler style mini crawlers, the LC383 and the new CC1485.
The CC1485 updated model still boasts many market-leading features including a 6-ton lifting capacity, 16.7 meter boom, optional fly jib with 0-60 degree offset, rear view camera and 7-inch monitor as standard. No outriggers mean an extremely slim working footprint. Features of this more compact model include fully enclosed air-conditioned cab with link slide door, minimal tail swing, powerful two speed hi/lo winch, hydrostatic transmission, 4 fall/2 fall hook block, tilt sensor/alarm, hydraulic disc brake and automatic heptagonal 5-section boom.
