Microcranes, Inc. produces quality, portable mini cranes and material lifting equipment that streamlines productivity with a return on investment and cost efficiency in mind. Work on rooftops at up to depths of 10 stories. We offer two mobile hoist/mini crane models each using a patented counter weight system, outrigger system and compact footprint allowing the cranes to fit through doorways/inside elevators, tight spaces and be transported via elevator, truck or van. The patented base structure folds out easily to function as a stationary floor or roof crane, but is designed to safely pick and carry loads. Eco-friendly: zero emissions/low sound levels.
Our Floor Cranes At Work
Portable cranes for lifting, shifting, installing & maintaining
Microcranes® portable cranes are made to lift, drop, drag, pull, tug, transport, carry, stack, move, hold and set loads and heavy materials in any situation in interior or exterior of buildings, or on top of roofs. Small enough to fit inside a three foot residential doorway opening, elevator, narrow aisle, hallway or back of a truck, this vertical lifting mini crane allows rigging in tight spaces, restricted access and hard to reach areas or over and around obstacles. The S1 model has dual batteries with a weatherproof on-board charger and a hydraulic boom arm, allowing full mobility and easy transport when folded in and compact. The T1 model requires electric 115v/230v for the winch (or manual hand crank spur option), and uses a hand pump hydraulic jack to raise and lower the boom into position for material handling.
Industries that use small floor cranes and portable hydraulic floor cranes include HVAC, pipe, steel, ports, military, oil refineries, warehouses, marinas, manufacturers/fabricators, water plants, glass, glazing, shipping yards, film/tv/theatre rigging & production, concrete removal, plumbing, factories, airlines, utility companies, disaster deployment operations, aluminum installation, spa installment, farms, sewage, window installation, mining, AAC concrete installation, cement, petrol exploration, railroad, and many more. Unlike material lifters from beneath, the spider-like mini crane lifts from above via cable and winch. Diverse light duty lifting to light/medium duty equipment, portable hoist devices and push able floor cranes. Roof top lifting, for interior or exterior industrial or residential building/construction applications. The T1 Manual Push Floor Crane is safe for hazardous work environments like the oil & gas industry with a manual hand crank winch. The S1 battery powered pushable hydraulic boom crane employs continuous industrial lifting with vertical hoist and a simple to control hydraulic telescopic boom using battery power. These compact, narrow, versatile easy to use mini cranes serve vital infrastructure needs in utility markets and industrial jobsite construction. Utilities know that the S1 and T1 hoists perform reliably for the range of routine pick and carry or continuous safe rigging.
All of our small cranes utilize a light-weight pull-out manual boom with a hydraulic or manual jack. This pick and carry floor crane is versatile for multi-purpose applications. Lifting capacities: 1 ton, half ton, 1/2 ton, 300 lb, 400 lb, 500 lb, 600 lb, 700 lb, 800 lb, 900 lb, 1000 lb, 1100 lb, 1200 lb, 1300 lb, 1400 lb, 1500 lb, 1600 lb, 1700 lb, 1800 lb, double line/snatch block for lifting 2000 lbs. Lift height/boom extension to reach heights of 8ft, 10ft, 12ft, 15ft, 16ft, 18ft, 21 ft. By placing the crane on the roof, you can lower/drop material loads down sides of buildings. Use for search and rescue missions and debri removal.
Applications include moving, installing materials. Pumps and motors, walls, pipes, compressors, electrical and mechanical components, sheet metal, formed concrete structures, building materials, AAC blocks, telecom, mechanical equipment, slip concrete forms (slipforms), aluminum installation, railroads, landscaping, stone setting, pool building, residential glazing.
