Rapid Deployment, Easy to Use, Sets up in Minutes

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 or floor to floor. We offer mobile hoists/mini crane models each using a patented counter weight system, outrigger system and compact footprint allowing the cranes to fit through doorways/inside elevators, breaks down to move up staircases, in tight spaces and be transported via elevator, truck, helicopter, large crane or van. The patented base structure folds out easily to function as a stationary floor or mini roof crane, but is designed to safely pick and carry loads. Eco-friendly: zero emissions/low sound levels.

Compact, 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. 24v battery power or electric models. Small enough to fit inside a three foot residential doorway opening, travel up inside an elevator, narrow aisle, hallway, stairwell or back of a truck, this vertical lifting mobile mini crane allows rigging in tight spaces, restricted access and hard to reach areas or over and around obstacles. Save money compared to large crane rentals. The M1 Global Model has dual batteries with a weatherproof on-board charger (or choose 115v electric) and a hydraulic raising boom, allowing full mobility and easy transport when folded in and compact.

Industries that use small floor cranes and portable hydraulic floor cranes include aircraft/helicopters/aerospace, HVAC, pipe, steel, ports, military, oil refineries, warehouses, marinas, manufacturers/fabricators, water plants, energy/utilities, construction, auto, glass, glazing, shipping yards, film/tv/theatre rigging & production, concrete removal, plumbing, factories, stone, airlines, disaster deployment operations, aluminum installation, spa installment, farms, sewage, window installation, mining, AAC concrete block installation, cement, petrol exploration, railroad, marine, cruise lines and boats. Unlike material lifters from beneath, the spider-like mini crane lifts from above via cable and winch. Prevent injuries and workers comp. Diverse jobs require portable hoist devices and pushable floor cranes. Used for roof top lifting (ground to roof), floor to floor, interior or exterior industrial or residential building/construction applications. The spider like mobile floor crane hoist is ideal for hazardous work environments (gas, vapors, comubustable dust) like the oil & gas industries. Our M1 Global 24v battery powered hydraulic boom crane allows mobility on jobsites. Compact, narrow, versatile and easy to use mini cranes serve vital infrastructure needs in utility markets and industrial construction like high-rise and skyrise buildings. Preform routine pick and carry or continuous rigging applications. Reduce costs by eliminating large crane rentals.

All of our small cranes utilize a box style boom with a hydraulic jack. Pick and carry mini floor cranes are ideal 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, 2000 lbs. Lift height/boom extension to reach heights of: 6ft, 8ft, 10ft, 12ft, 15ft, 16ft, 18ft, 21ft. By placing the crane hoist on the roof, you can lower/drop material loads down sides of buildings at depths to 13 stories using an overhaul ball and electric winch accessory. Use for search and rescue missions, debri removal, installation, repairs and maintenance.

Patented base allows a compact footprint, portability and pick and carry function with loads.
