With a narrow straddle adjustment it can pass through regular doorways or through narrow aisles, and then reach into, over, or under the nooks and crannies and hard to reach places.

An optional powered telescopic boom lift option allows the boom to be extended or retracted under load. The cranes may also be equipped with optional manual or powered winch cable lift to reach down below ground level in to the Manhole or basement, or from second or third floor reach to ground level.
