VANCOUVER, Wash. - Microcranes Inc. introduced its new hydraulic pick-and-carry portable crane, the ISO-certified M1 Global model.

The M1 Global design fits through 36-in. doorways, narrow aisles, and inside elevators, yet expands to boom up to a 22-ft. tip height.

Requiring no license for operation, it is rated at 2,000 lbs. (905 kg) and has a hook height of 20’3” (6.1 m). It is 30-in. (762 mm) wide and weighs 1,800 lbs. (816 kg) with 300 lbs. of removable counterweights.

The multi-purpose lifting crane has several configurations including a roof-top configuration, allowing floor-to-floor or ground-to-roof lifting of materials of up to seven stories.

The M1 Global is built to ASME standards, exceeds OSHA standards, and is CE certified to meet international standards for the United States, Canada, Europe, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, South America, and other territories.

Safety features include an upper-limit switch (anti-two-block); 1.5-load safety factor; 4:1 rated hook with safety latch; brakes on rear and front wheels; brake on the winch; dual stop points on the four-piece boom; and a winch shield.

The M1 Global unfolds from the sides and back for stabilization, and the four-piece boom extends to a 22-ft. tip height. Users can raise and lower the hydraulic boom with hand controls, as well as raise or lower live loads with a DC power winch, powered by 24V deep cycle battery power with an onboard charger. The line speed is 30 FPM (9 m/min.). It also is available in a stainless-steel option for clean-room environments.

“We work with many industries, from startups to Fortune 100 companies around the globe, to provide equipment for tight spaces and alternatives to renting or buying expensive large cranes,” said Josh Clark, CEO and founder of Microcranes. “Our cranes are used in industrial building, glazing, HVAC, maintenance, aircraft/aerospace, steel, marine, stone, military, manufacturing, utilities, auto, and energy.”

Microcrane focuses on developing, producing, and distributing eco-friendly battery powered or electric, small, portable lifting equipment used indoors, outdoors, and on roof tops.
