Maeda has updated its MC305-3 and MC405-3 mini crawler cranes

Two of Japanese manufacturer Maeda’s mini crawler crane models have been updated and will be first shown at the ConExpo show in the USA.

Maeda USA will demonstrate the improved MC305-3 and MC405-3 mini crawler cranes from 10 to 14 March 2020 at the vast event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Both updated models are still narrow enough to fit through a standard double door (the MC305-3 is 51 inches (1,295 mm) wide and the MC405-3 is 55 inches (1,397 mm). Each still lifts 6,500 and 8,400 pounds (2.95 and 3.81 tonnes), respectively.

For the MC305-3 there are new lightweight, corrosion-resistant fibreglass body covers and a new protection bar to increase operator safety. The larger of two cranes, the MC405-3, now has pick and carry capability with loads up to 1,100 pounds (500 kg). A 3,300 pound (1.5 tonne) capacity searcher hook will also be introduced as an option on both models to make them more versatile. As standard both come with remote control, LMI and continuous rotation.
