Boecker Rolls Out Track-Mounted Mini-Crane | Construction News


Boecker Maschinenwerke, Werne, Germany, has introduced the RK 36/2400, a 5,290-lb.-capacity, crawler-mounted mini-crane that can travel and maneuver on the softest ground.

Its balanced design and crawler base distribute the crane’s 9,920-lb. weight evenly so it can travel gently on grass or sensitive surfaces.

The two-speed crawler drive lets the crane travel at up to 1.5 mph in slow range or 2.8 mph in high.

The diesel engine comes standard, and an optional electric motor with the same power can be added so that the machine can work silent and emission-free without loss of performance indoors.

The outrigger supports are self leveling.

On its main boom, the 36/2400 can lift 5,290 lbs. to a height of 41 ft. at a 14’9” radius, or raise 2,200 lbs. to a height of 64 ft. at a 32’10” radius.

With a maximum boom-and-jib length of 118 ft., the 36/2400 can lift 550 lbs. to a height of 108 ft., or reach out to a radius of 89 ft. and height of 45 ft. with 220 lbs.

Its its fully hydraulic boom can telescope in or out with a load on the hook.

All functions are operated by a wireless remote control unit with a color display.

Options, for example an aerial work platform, expand the RK 36/2400’s versatility so it can work in a variety of applications from lift work to glass and facade construction, to industrial maintenance, or arborist and horticulture applications.
