Maeda MC285 Mini Spider Crane

The MC285 spider crane has a massive 2.82 ton lifting capacity while measuring just 750mm wide when stowed. It is ideal for jobs where space is restricted as its slim body is able to fit through most doorways, allowing access to areas previously inaccessible to standard cranes.

The MC285 has proven to be one of the most popular models of mini crane and is used in a wide range of applications. The latest version of the MC285 model is faster and easier to operate than ever before, with improved safety features and a 4/2 fall hook block as standard.
