Reach-All Introduces New Aerial Platform for Work Cranes and Boom Trucks | Powered Access

The CraneMate, Reach-All LLC's latest aerial work platform is designed for work cranes and boom trucks. Five feet long with a 500-lb. capacity, the new work platform is suitable for applications with eight to 10-ton boom trucks.

The full rotation allows better platform positioning and lets us do more work in less hours," said Phil McCrary, general manager of Berlin Sign Company. "That results in eliminating extra set up, travel and work time."

The CraneMate features a modular design that means to reduce costly repairs and down-time.

  • Hydraulic-powered auto leveling: This provides safety for personnel and stability of payloads.  The platform will level regardless of the location of the payload inside the platform and independently of where it is rotationally positioned.
  • 180 degree full platform rotation: Proportional controls enable strong positioning of the platform to work areas and prevents workers from bunching up at one corner of the platform and stretching unsafely to hard-to-reach areas. When combined into one package, auto hydraulic leveling and 180 degree hydraulic rotation enables one or two workers to safely position the loaded platform alongside and safely remove objects from the work area into the platform.  Once loaded the crane and platform can be repositioned to a new location or to the ground without being tilted out of level.
  • The “stow and go” feature: Allows the platform to be attached and positioned to the crane tip for safe road travel. This reduces set up at the jobsite and lessens the risk of an on-site accident. Attachment design allows access to different types of crane vehicles for choices to suit the jobsite terrain.
