Maeda presented the prototype of its 2.9 tonne capacity LC383M-5B mini crawler crane.

The pick and carry unit is designed to work without outriggers, meaning it has a small footprint for tight spaces on construction sites.

Christer Dijner, managing director of Maeda dealer for Europe, Middle East, North Africa and Russia, said the company had sold two units from its stand by Thursday 22 April.

The crane is the smallest model in the LC range of three. Its main features include a maximum working height of 9.3 m and a 1.5 tonne pick and carry lifting duty. It also offers hydrostatic transmission, programmable moment limiter and four or two fall hook block.
