Scope

Liftmak LMFTC 8000/12000/15000/18000 fully hydraulic and foldable cranes, built in India at ISO 9001:2000 certified Liftmak works in Gurgaon, India, offer unmatched utility and operational flexibility.

Some of the applications of knuckle boom cranes: Handling stores/materials self-loading them on truck, since the crane occupies only 1.50-1.70m lateral space on the truck chassis. The precise inching control of the crane makes it possible to position any load, say for example, transformer on pole with ease.

Handling poles. As an option we can offer a special pole grab, which can assist in erection of the poles.Log handling with log grab. The grab has a hydraulic rotator to position grab as required.

Desilting of open drains with grab/clamshell. Clamshell is perforated to allow water to drain out, while retaining silt in the grab/clamshell.Drilling holes with hydraulic auger.Overhead access of street lights/any elevated point, requiring access by man, with manlift basket.

Action photographs of Liftmak LMFTC 8000/12000/15000/18000 hydraulic foldable cranes are as under. Kindly note that most customers have opted for mounting of crane at rear end of vehicle as rear mounting offers superior clear outreach (closer approach to load); however, there is no difficulty in mounting it behind drivers cabin, if so desired.

Crane in folded position. Note that crane takes only 1.55m lateral space of chassis for mounting, leaving adequate space on truck body for ‘self-loading’

Crane with telescopic booms extended, boom raised and all 4-outriggers deployed. Note operator seated in comfort on seat mounted in elevated position on slew column for commanding visibility of hook irrespective of boom position Crane featured has max horizontal reach/height 9.5m/11m respectively
