Tele-Mast Straddle Crane Lifts Energy

A fortune 250 company a leader in the green energy field had an application in which they had to transport both ISO containers along with turbine rotors weighing up to 100,000 lbs. They wanted an all-in-one universal crane that would handle them both. We tailored our Self Propelled Telescopic-Mast Straddle Crane to the application, which included both auto locking container lifter, and a single lifting beam down the middle. They also wanted the ability to move one container over another or stack the containers. So we designed it with additional travel to clear the container height. The unit is diesel engine powered that powers all functions including the steering, drive, and mast lift. It is completely self-contained, and maneuvering and position is controlled by a variable speed joystick control. This all-in-one solution enables the customer to handle a variety of loads without requiring any equipment rental or tool change-overs, saving time and improving productivity.

The Tele-Mast Straddle Crane

International shipping is a must in today’s business world. In order to ship at the lowest price per item manufacturers often utilize CONEX containers (aka ISO or intermodal containers) to ship the maximum amount at a flat price. With over 17,000,000 intermodal containers in the world, most manufacturers deal with these on a regular basis. Small manufacturers often have to contract a rigging operation in order to lift the intermodal container from the ground onto a flatbed truck for shipping. The Telecopic-Mast Straddle Crane is an economic solution that pays for itself in just a few uses, compared to the cost of a third party hoisting operation. The lifting action is hydraulically operated, allowing for a very smooth and cost-effective operation, saving the tremendous expense of a high-capacity hoist.

The Tele-Mast Straddle Crane is available in a economical towable model, and also in a self-propelled model for self-sufficient operation. It is available with a spreader bar that can be outfitted to fit a variety of intermodal containers, and stack them up to two high. Remote control locking is available in order to secure the container to the spreader bar and keep the labor and risk of injuries of workers to a minimum.

The Tele-Mast Straddle Crane makes the job safer, easier, and more efficient.
