Maintainer Corp. Introduces New Cranes

Maintainer Corp. of Iowa has added two new 25-foot hydraulic cranes to its line of work truck cranes. The H12025 and H14025 telescopic cranes are engineered to provide more lifting capacity at further distances from the truck. Each new crane boasts a 90,000-foot-pound crane rating and has a reach of 25 feet. The H12025 has a maximum lift of 12,000 pounds, while the H14025 can lift 14,000 pounds. The cranes feature a planetary winch mounted on the boom, which is an upgrade over Maintainer’s existing 12000 and 14000 crane models.

The two new cranes are also equipped with Maintainer’s latest Advanced Crane Control to monitor the stability of the crane during operation. New sensors have been installed that will monitor the tilt angle of the truck as well as the boom angle of the crane. If the system senses an out-of-level condition, it will warn the operator and even stop the crane rotation if necessary. The system also monitors the rotational position of the crane to determine overall truck stability when making large lifts.
