After releasing the S1 model battery powered, full hydraulic mini-crane over a year ago, Smart-Rig Cranes, LLC, a leader in portable crane and floor crane manufacturing and distribution worldwide, is introducing the T1 model floor crane.
"The T1 model has the same narrow base that fits through a door and inside elevators, the same leg system and water-tank counter weight system our customers love, but we scaled down the crane to help a more budget consious buyer and help users with minimal lifting requirments own a portable hoist." Josh Clark, founder and CEO, stated last week.
With a 18'-3" hook height, the new T1 portable hoist utilizes a new mast design incorportaing a manual hand pump jack to raise the boom and electric winch, as opposed to a hydraulic jack and batteries. The maximum load capacity is rated at 1,000 lbs., which serves the HVAC(heating and air conditioning) industry well. The T1 crane helps construction workers and employees save time and money setting pipe, pumps, towers, duct work, also with airplane maintenance and manufacturing, aerospace, and general maintenance such as in energy, municiples and schools.
Easy to push around on jobsites and on interior floors, the T1 hoist can also be used on multiple surfaces including exterior surfaces such as grass, dirt, gravel, asphalt, concrete. Utilizing rear steering, the new design allows the crane to swivel, pick and carry and rotate materials and loads. This aspect, according to Josh, gives users a greater sense of control over their applications. "An operator can literally grab a load off the back of a truckbed outside, and carry that load inside a building, through doorways and inside elevators, up several stories, through hallways and aisles, and straight to the jobsite where it can be positioned to rig that same load into position for installation." Josh said.
Unlike a forklift, these portable cranes are meant to work in tight spaces and rig loads from above. There is no noise, no gas, no pollution. "We are proud to say our cranes are considered environmentally friendly". Josh stated. "There are no regulations or operations training required, no fuel needed, and anyone over 18 years of age can operate a Smart-Rig after referring to the manual. They are meant to be simple yet powerful and effective lifting tools"
