U.K.-based Compact Lifting Equipment has reportedly become the sole North American distributor for the Italian-built JMG pick and carry industrial cranes. The JMG product range consists of pick-and-carry DC-powered cranes from 5- to 66-ton capacities.

At the light-lifting end of the product range, Company Lifting Equipment offers the MC40 mobile crane, which has a 9,920-pound maximum lift capacity and a 21'9" maximum boom length. Powered by a 48-volt, 560 Ah battery, the unit also features power steering on the back wheel and a maximum steering angle of +/-90 degrees.

The largest JMG machine Compact Lifting Equipment is offering is the MC600E, which has a 132,000-pound maximum lifting capacity and 46'3" boom length. Turning radius is 16.7 feet. Power steering is operated by a hydraulic motor, and maximum steering angle is +/-85 degrees. A 96-volt long-life cycle battery powers the MC600E

 All JMG cranes distributed by Compact Lifting Equipment will be ANSI-approved and equipped with 3B6 load moment indicators to enable the operators to control all the lifting function within the safety capabilities. Other safety features include safety valves  that protect against hose and pipe rupture and a hoist limit switch.
