Inventor Develops Mobile Crane Lifting Accessory (DPH-103)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Crane Buddy, to applicable companies for their consideration.

An inventor from Thornton, Colo., has developed the CRANE BUDDY, an accessory for mobile construction cranes. A working model prototype is available. "I was inspired to create this because one of my co-workers was injured when lifting the reel end pads to the back, top of the crane. I wanted to help prevent further injuries to crane operators and oilers," said the inventor.

The CRANE BUDDY enables heavy, bulky items to be loaded onto a crane for storage purposes. Much less physical effort is required with this accessory in use. It will increase the overall productivity of a crane operator. It may help prevent overexertion (of the shoulders, back and waist) and related injuries amongst operators. This accessory is adaptable for use on a variety of makes and models of mobile cranes.

The original design was submitted to the Denver office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
