Typical Applications for Our Mini Cranes

A tracked spider crane can operate in areas where space is extremely restricted.  The tracked designs means they are perfect for moving across difficult terrain and setting up where ground is uneven. The lightweight and compact design of our spider mini cranes makes them ideal for being moved in construction lifts and working on low load-bearing floors. At only 60cm wide they are narrow enough to fit through a standard door frame. Some typical uses include:

  • Steel erection
  • All construction related lifting jobs
  • Restoration projects
  • Cladding installation and repairs
  • Simple lifting jobs in tight spaces – over garden fences, garages etc.
  • Plant maintenance
  • Railway maintenance
  • Glazing
  • Working on high rise buildings
  • Repair works inside factories
  • Heavy borehole pump removal and installation

About the URW-295 Spider Crane

The URW295 Mini Spider crane is currently the leading compact crane on the market. With a continuous rotation of 360 degrees and a maximum lifting capacity of 2.9t  (6500lbs) the crane is extremely versatile. Adjustable outriggers give a variable geometric footprint meaning it can be set-up in tight spots such as rooftops and small factories. As an added feature, the URW295 model comes equipped with a wireless radio remote control system; freeing the operator from being tied to the crane for virtually unlimited positioning.

  • 2.9 tonne x 1.4m capacity
  • Total width: 0.6m
  • Max working radius 8.41m
  • Max boom length 8.65m
  • Petrol powered with LPG for indoor use
