)-- Since 2005 the R & D department at Smart-Rig Cranes have been developing portable, small cranes for niche applications and tight spaces. Now the company, based out of Vancouver, Washington, has three portable mini-cranes
to choose from. Their newest addition to their product line is the S2 Model, rated at 3,400 lbs. load capacity, battery operated, hydraulic boom and pick and carry design for easy storage and compact transport.
The S2 Model is the third model to hit the market since the S1 and T1 models were introduced. The T1 Model is a 1,200 lb. capacity, electric, manual hand pump jack crane with 135 ft. of cable. The S1 Model is full power - and mobile, utilizing batteries, remote controls, hydraulics boom extension. The S2 Model is a "beefier" machine with upgrades allowing additional load bearing. The Smart-Rig Cranes have been tested by 3rd party-Cal-Osha crane testing companies at 110% load capacity. destructive testing was done in 2007 at appx. 225% of current rated machinery. The S2 Model comes fully assembled with a DC powered vertical rated hoist that meets ASME B30.5 standards, and 100 feet of steel cable. All models are CE marked for EU markets.
Josh Clark, founder and CEO says, "The T1 has it's place, the S1 has it's place. We created the S2 Model and soon it will find it's place as well." The owner says the S2 Model helps clients get more lifting power, especially in the mid to high boom positions. "The S2 Model gets clients more lifting power in the 10-20 foot range," added Clark.
All three small crane models use a similar patented base structure with a pull-out water-tank counter weight system, making the Smart-Rig Crane the first of it's kind and eco-friendly with no gas, fuel, smoke or loud noise. According to Mr. Clark the mobile cranes are used in diverse settings such as setting glass curtain walls, installing steel beams, HVAC, pipe, pump or air conditioner installs, aircraft/aerospace/helicopter repair and maintenance as well as auto shops, engine removal, and industrial construction.
