SpyderCrane URW 376, Spydercrane Sales LLC

The SpyderCrane URW376 is a batterypowered mini-crawler crane for indoor use. At just 52 inches wide, the mini-crawler can easily travel through double doorways, according to officials from U.S. distributor SpyderCrane Sales. Manufactured by FuruKawa Unic Corp., the crane has a lifting capacity of 6,680 pounds at an 8-foot radius, and a total working height of 58 feet. The crane is equipped with wireless radio remote controls, as well as an LMI overload protection system with display. The mini-crawler can also be equipped with a remote-controlled glass manipulator to handle glass lites weighing up to 1,300 pounds. The unique design of the SpyderCrane permits users to adjust each outrigger leg independently, the supplier reports, so the mini-crawler can be leveled on uneven surfaces. Multi-position outrigger settings allow for maximum lifting and use in tight areas.
