A UNIC URW-706 mini spider crane showed that lifting can be an art form recently when it expertly installed a stunning horse sculpture in a new UK shopping centre.
The 1385kg Cleveland Bay pack horse was created by Andy Scott, an internationally renowned sculptor who specializes in creating public art from galvanized steel. “Equus Altus” (“high horse” in Latin) is his latest creation which took 10 months to create in his studio but just one day to install on location thanks to some help from a UNIC mini crane.
The 6 tonne capacity UNIC mini crane helped to assemble the giant horse from its five separate sections on the ground, before lifting the complete sculpture up onto its 10 metre tall column in the middle of the shopping centre atrium.
Thanks to its compact size, reach and working area limitation function, the UNIC URW-706 could work from underneath a walkway bridge to safely lift the 5 metre tall sculpture into position.
