Reaching New Heights yet Rugged, Compact and Portable

Mentor, Ohio January 19, 2017 – Air Technical Industries (ATI) announces the development of a new, top notch lifter that is an economical alternative to help raise productivity and profits.  The Sky-Riser offers a variety of unique, versatile features which include:  vertical telescopic mast action, powered boom rotation, telescopic boom, 12 ft longer goose-neck attachment for higher lift and further reach, adjustable straddle for narrow passage thru doorways/aisles, and tow bar steering with 90° swing to left and right for sharp turns and precise positioning.  The unique telescopic outriggers are 120” wide for stability when lifting to the sky and are retracted when not needed.

The crane is equipped with large foam-filled pneumatic tires for outdoor use on rough gravel.  All the features of the large crane can be folded into a smaller package for strategic deployment and fast transport to any location.

The crane can be easily disassembled by removing the two legs with tires, the boom is removed and the adjustable stabilizers are caster equipped so the crane mast with the base is mobile even in its disassembled condition.

The vertically telescopic mast provides higher reach over obstacles and lowers for easy passage through the doorway and loading on a truck for transport.  The adjustment is from 88” up to 126” mast height.

The Sky-Riser Mobile Crane lifts up to 4000 lb with the boom retracted to a height of 20 ft.  With the boom telescoped out, it lifts 1000 lb up to 30 ft height.  With the goose-neck attachment in a straight out position it will lift 500 lb to 40 ft height and with the goose-neck attachment  set at 45° angle the unit will reach up to 14 ft beyond the wheels and a height of 36 ft.

The power mast rotation is equipped with telescopic outriggers and the rotation is limited to 45° left and 45° right.  All the powered features are hydraulically operated action and include the boom lift, telescopic boom, vertical mast lift and the mast rotation.

The power source available is 110 volt AC single-phase, 240-480 3-phase, battery powered, gasoline, diesel engine, and propane operated.  For hazardous locations, spark proof air power is also available.

Controls are mast-mounted manual spool valves or push button remote pendant to help the user be where they need for precise positioning of the load or parts.

Take your pick:  Options available are powered cable lift, telescopic outriggers, walkie or rider style self propelled drive, operational safety amber light, and custom goose-neck attachment can be made to suit the user’s needs.
The Sky-Riser will help to speed up maintenance work on aircraft or construction applications with all new versatility in assembly work to increase productivity and mobility at a lower cost.  It is an ideal tool where portability and higher lifts are required.

Reversible Boom Crane Loses Weight

New telescopic base feature reduces weight, adds versatility

Mentor, Ohio November 23, 2015 Air Technical Industries (ATI) of Mentor, Ohio announces the development of a new version of its popular Reversible Boom Crane (RBC) mobile counterbalanced floor crane with new unique features that enable it to extend and retract its base to adjust the overall length of the crane. The great benefit of this feature is the reduced overall weight for ease of transportation and handling, as well as reduced ground loading for use on floors with limited capacity.

Short mode is desirable to operate in crowded areas, can fit in freight elevators, or for use on floors with light capacity. Long mode can operate in open areas with more room, provides greater capacity with the counterweight extended for increased leverage, more safety and stability. These new features greatly increase the versatility to meet the user’s need.

The unit features polyurethane bearing mounted wheels for floor protection and smooth easy travel. Steering capability is 90° to left and right, which enable it to make sharp turns in crowded areas.

The propulsion is battery powered and controls are infinitely variable speeds from 0-4 mph. The unit has the ability to travel very slow for precision alignment of load. The hydraulically actuated telescopic boom option enables the boom to be extended and retracted under load.

These units are available in capacities from 1000 lbs to 20,000 lbs. The boom lengths and lifting height are dependent on the capacity and size of the unit and can range from 8 ft height up to 24 ft. The most important feature of the RBC is the reach beyond the wheels. This enables the user to reach into, over, and beyond nooks, crannies, into enclosures, trucks, or other areas where no other handling equipment can.

The other important features of the RBC mobile crane is its slim build enabling it to pass through doorways, narrow aisles, tool room or other locations that are not easily accessible. The optional features are powered telescopic boom, powered telescopic base, hydraulic powered mast rotation, winch cable lift, outriggers, remote operated push button control, or wireless radio control.

The new RBC is indeed a valuable tool to help lift and carry any kind of load to make the job easier and safer. Now even a construction site with limited floor capacity can benefit from the tremendous versatility of the best shop crane ever.

Port-O-Giant Crane Serves Aerospace Industry

A customer in the aircraft manufacturing business was looking for a safe way to replace helicopter blades that could weight up to 750 lbs. These blades needed to be lifted upwards of 20 feet high in the air. This was a great application for our Self-Propelled Port-O-Giant with the goose-neck boom attachment and hydraulic powered winch. This unit comes self-contained with all powered options for telescopic boom, powered boom lift, hydraulic winch, and powered mast rotation. The unit runs on 24V DC battery power and has a built-in on-board battery charger. This unit worked perfectly and was able to straddle the helicopter and with the goose-neck boom, safely lift up and over any obstruction. This unit is very versatile in the aeronautical industry as it has been used for multiple applications such as servicing engines and or turbines to removing seats from aircraft.

This unit was featured in one of our latest press releases at
