Currently, there is no requirement for mini crane operators to hold a specific training qualification. Driver familiarisation is carried out at our premises in Bedfordshire prior to hire commencement.
No, JT mini cranes are designed to lift loads only with outriggers deployed. They do not have ‘pick and carry’ duties.
JT mini cranes are available with an electric or LPG option, so can be safely operated inside without the problem of toxic exhaust fumes. Diesel models now have catalytic converters and particulate filters to greatly reduce harmful emissions.
Point loading tables for each model are available upon request, please contact our office.
Each crane’s outriggers need only to be unlocked from their travelling position manually. They can then be extended automatically from the operator’s control panel.
URW295 and URW506 are constantly competing for this honour.
Mini cranes are designed for two specific applications: restricted access and confined working. Size, weight, capacity and reach are therefore all paramount.
Our cranes are designed to be as compact as possible – for access – and to lift as much load as possible – for working. All our cranes are class leading in both these respects.
Reliability, ease of operation and safety are the other features customers look for. Precision Japanese manufacturing and testing ensure the reliability of our machines.
In terms of safety, our cranes lead the way technically with an array of features including: unique computer-controlled intelligent voice warning system programmed in seven languages, unique automatic hook stow system, unique hexagonal boom to reduce sway, over-lowering prevention device, working area limitation, anti-two block system, auto-stop and continuous alarm.
More than anything, our commitment to technical research, customer research and product development keeps us ahead of the competition.
UNIC and Jekko mini cranes have a reputation for reliability. Neglect or operator abuses are the most common causes of breakdown.
An experienced operator can take a crane from its travelling position, with outriggers stowed, to fully extend, with boom raised and ready to lift in about 3 minutes.
