On an addition to the St. David’s Medical Facility in Austin, Texas, the tower crane couldn’t access the farthest corner of the structure. The stage steel beams, the tower crane hoisted a Maeda MC 285 mini-crane to the roof. Erectors found the mini-crane was much faster at assembling the steel because of its close proximity and precise placement.

Compactness, capacity, and reach are enabling a Maeda MC305-2 mini-crane to play a major rooftop role in getting a high-rise construction project back on track in New York City after Hurricane Sandy. JV Trucking & Rigging LLC, Manalapan, N.J., has perched the Maeda mini-crane atop a 1,020-ft tall high-rise luxury condominium building that’s going up in Manhattan. The 75-story building is reportedly the tallest residential building in the city, as well as the city’s tallest building that uses only concrete for its structural members.
