UNIC Cranes Europe Unveils Cube Crane at Bauma 2019
UNIC Cranes Europe has announced the launch of its brand-new mini crane, the Cube Crane, which will launch at Bauma from 8th – 14th April 2019.
The Cube Crane is one of the most advanced mini cranes in the world to feature a 3-section derricking boom enabling it to be set at an 85°, 90° and 95° angle. It also features a 5 section fold away boom, making it extremely versatile for some of the most restricted access and confined lifting projects.
Developed by Japanese manufacturer Furukawa UNIC, the Cube Crane benefits from innovative, multi-position outrigger configurations, enabling this mini crane to work and operate safely around permanent obstacles on site.
This new mini crane is ideal for working in restricted and confined areas as the crane can be deployed and removed with ease. This machine allows for the derricking boom to be erected to a height of 9 metres and at the top, the folding boom extends to a working radius of 13.99 metres and with the 360° continuous slewing it provides an overall working reach of 27.98 metres. The derricking boom and folding boom can also be extended and retracted through a vertical void if needed.
This compact crane features a safety load indicator system with an over winding alarm and intelligent voice warning system for optimum safety during lifting operations. The upgrade to the radio remote incorporating Bi-axis joysticks and feedback display providing the operator all information required during lifting operations.
Featuring nearly a tonne of lifting capacity, this mini machine also benefits from a lifting height of 21.1 metres and a horizontal reach giving a maximum working radius of 13.99m. At just 1.5m wide, can easily move around corners thanks to its ability to reposition the boom whilst travelling to its install location.
Graeme Riley, CEO of UNIC Cranes Europe comments “The Cube Crane is an innovative new addition to our UNIC mini crane fleet, the introduction of the 3-section derricking boom allows this crane to be set at an 85°, 90° and 95° angle for even more versatility in unique and compact lifting operations. We see this addition being used widely by our existing customer base in a variety of restricted access environments, including narrow spaces inbetween buildings and inner urban environments
