Mentor, Ohio September 7, 2017 – Air Technical Industries (ATI) announces the development of a new all-terrain crawler crane for outdoor and indoor use. The unique features of the Crawler crane include ergonomic and eco-friendly (ergo-eco) clean operation, quiet movement, remote controlled walk along functionality, turning on the dime (360°) and ability to travel in any direction for multi-use applications.
The knuckle boom crane (KK) comes with a telescopic extension boom reaching up to 18 ft with a lift height of 20 ft above the ground level. The knuckle allows it to effectively reach 5 ft below the ground level into man holes or below ground operation. Adding a hydraulic winch option allows reach up to 50 ft below ground level.
The crane functions are hydraulically activated and includes 350° mast rotation for the boom lift, the knuckle, and telescopic boom actions.
The controls are all remote pendant or wireless controlled. The pendant controller is attached to a 20′ long cable to give the operator flexibility to reach out to where a load needs to be handled or rigged.
An optional application for the Crawler is a removable plow blade which can be used for light ground grading or snow plowing.
The Crawler is powered by a 48 volt heavy duty industrial battery with a built-in charger for overnight charging. Alternative power options are LPG-gas propane or diesel for outdoor use only. The lifting capacity of the crane is available in 2000, 4000, 6000, and 10,000 lbs.
Other options include cable lift and gooseneck attachments which will extend the reach to 24 ft and the lifting height to 25 ft. The capacity is substantially reduced with the gooseneck attachment. A personnel basket can be attached to the boom for this lift. The track is available in steel and/or rubber to protect the floor as well as to reduce noise level while traveling.
The versatile Crawler has many features to assist various, unique material handling applications including assembly, maintenance work, transporting, loading, unloading and is ideal for aircraft service maintenance. The Crawler is an excellent workhorse for special industrial applications and is engineered to improve safety while making the job easier and faster.
