Compact lifting

28 February 2008

A new mini truck mounted crane is set to make life easier on small scale building and landscaping worksites.

The unit from UK-based Muck Truck has a lifting frame with tines that fits into a pallet of bricks weighing up to 200 kg and can swivel the load through 360 degrees.

It is aimed at the 7.5 tonne truck market and the base plate bolts directly to the truck chassis.

The product is powered by a 12V D.C. motor running from a battery and is operated by a hand held heavy duty controller which can be locked into any position and unplugged easily for transit or storage, said the company.
