Maeda to Show New Mini-Crawler at ConExpo
Maeda USA and Maeda are preparing to introduce Maeda’s newest mini crawler crane in ConExpo booth Gold Lot G-4017. 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 a 6.6-ton capacity telescopic-boom crawler crane on a heavy duty steel undercarriage and no-outrigger design offers a 72.2′ maximum hook height and near-zero tail swing. The CC model is similar in size and design to a 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 jobsites.
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.
