Maeda will Roll Out New Mini Crawler Crane at Conexpo | Construction News


 Maeda USA and Maeda are preparing to introduce Maeda's newest mini crawler crane at Conexpo 2017, March 7- 11 in Las Vegas.

At its exhibit in Gold Lot # G-4017, Maeda will introduce the new CC1485, the only small telescopic-boom crawler crane marketed in North America, according to the company.

The CC1485 will replace the LC785 and will be available in North America in 2017. CC1485 features include:

• 6.6-ton capacity telescopic-boom crawler crane on a heavy duty steel undercarriage

• No-outrigger design offers a 72.2' maximum hook height and near-zero tail swing

• CC model is similar in size and design to the popular mini-excavators, except equipped with a telescopic boom and hook

Maeda will also exhibit three current MC series models with various attachments. All models are outrigger based, small and narrow mini-crane design for access to tight work spaces and limited access job sites.

The 3.1-ton MC285-2 has a 31.5' maximum tip height and a 30" machine width for access through any doorway. It is the most useful for the tightest spots. Versions of the MC285-2 being exhibited will include the dual-powered diesel and electric model, as well as the dual-powered gasoline and LPG model. Attachments for the MC285-2 being exhibited include searcher-hook boom-tip extensions and long-reach auxiliary winch assembly with 340 ft. of wire rope capacity for work well below the machine.

The MC305-2 has a 3.3-ton capacity and a 47-ft. maximum tip height. Capacity throughout the lift chart doubles that of the MC285-2. The dual-powered diesel and electric model will be exhibited with the optional Maeda single-person basket for lifting people.

The 4.2-ton-rated MC405 offers a maximum tip height of 67 ft. off the optional fly jib, which will be exhibited. The dual-powered diesel and electric model will be on display, with the single-line overhaul ball.

All Maeda MC models offer wireless radio remote control, moment-limiter safety systems with load indicator, outrigger interlock, heavy-duty black or non-marking white rubber tracks, three-sheave hook blocks, and other features.

All Maeda MC and CC crane models offer exceptional safety features including programmable moment-limiter safety systems, anti-two-block, and multiple-warning and shutdown-safety systems. Maeda cranes comply with all OSHA and ASME B30.5 standards for mobile cranes, and all engines conform to current EPA and CARC emissions standards.
