A pair of 2.95 ton Unic mini cranes and an escalator successfully raised and set. The job was made possible by the cranes’ multiple settings for leg position.

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

According to the distributor, it supplied the first URW-295 model in April 2004 and this week confirmed its landmark order from manufacturer Furukawa Unic in Japan.

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.
