Unic Cranes Europe will present its 1,000th URW-295 mini crawler crane at the Apex aerial platform exhibition in September.

The URW-295 is 600 mm wide to fit through standard doorways. Capacity is 2.9 tonnes and it has a maximum working radius of 8.41 metres. It is designed for lifting in restricted areas, such as between floors, underground and within congested sites.
The larger URW-706, which will also be on show at the exhibition in Maastricht, the Netherlands, is 1.67 m wide and delivers a 6 tonne lifting capacity. It finds applications in the construction, defense, marine, infrastructure and rail industries.
