It is crucial to have a good crane for your project because a crane that lacks the necessary qualities or isn’t physically up to par can frequently mean the difference between a successful and failed project. With so many things to consider when choosing a crane, UNIC Cranes Europe, European master dealer, has created a checklist to help you make sure you’re obtaining the highest-quality cranes available.
The amount of weight that a crane can support—either in a stationary position or during pick-and-carry operations—must be taken into account while evaluating its quality. When selecting a crane, you must consider the weight of the object you need to lift and consult the crane’s chart of rated loads. This will allow you to see the crane’s lifting capacity in terms of weight at various heights as well as its stationary and mobile capabilities.
Our URW-1006, which is capable of lifting up to 10 tonnes, is our strongest mini crane. With the confidence of a high-quality machine, these cranes can be relied upon to deliver powerful heavy-duty lifting capability. The URW-1006, our greatest capacity lifter, also has a super compact frame that can be reduced to just 2000mm wide.
Height of the Lift
Height is a significant reason why people utilise cranes in the first place, so this is still another issue to take into account. Your project may run into the problem of being finished too slowly if you select a crane that struggles to reach heights or possibly can only extend the boom slowly. The crane you choose must be able to reliably reach specified heights in addition to being tall enough for the project.
The UNIC Mini Spider Crane is an illustration of a crane capable of safely ascending to enormous heights. But because this range comes in a variety of sizes, not all of them could be appropriate for your project even though they all reach astounding heights for their diminutive size. Our largest Mini Spider Crane, the URW-1006, which can reach up to 22.8 metres, or the height of a 5-story building, easily outreaches our smallest, the URW-094, which has a maximum working height of 5.6 metres.
Choosing a Crane for Quality
It serves little purpose to purchase a crane only to discover later that the quality is lacking, which is why it is crucial to carefully inspect your crane before utilising it. The crane should first be visually inspected for any evident symptoms of damage, such as rust, wire rope deterioration, and other more serious problems. Additionally, you should look for any electrical problems, such as unstable or malfunctioning controls. To make sure everything is operating normally, you should then test the lift and any other functions. Issues with retraction of the boom or difficulty operating the crane are examples of potential problems.
Before giving equipment to a customer, UNIC Cranes Europe always takes care to inspect it to ensure the highest quality. You won’t ever have to worry about unpleasant shocks because our cranes are made to be dependable with quality assurance.
Having a crane with outstanding features is fantastic, but that doesn’t guarantee that it will work effectively. For your peace of mind, it’s crucial to purchase a crane from a respected company that offers performance and quality assurance. Typically, these businesses will only offer cranes with excellent performance, and they will confirm the performance is satisfactory before delivering it to you.
At UNIC Cranes Europe, we only work with goods and cranes that we are confident in, that we would want to use ourselves, and that will make the business proud.
