The Backsaver Crane is the economical alternative to expensive vehicle mounted hydraulic cranes and is suitable for utilities, trucks and trailers, etc. With a choice of 300kg and 500kg models, the Backsaver Crane with extendable booms suits a host of reach and lift requirements. With an extendable position action, all cranes have a boom reach of over 1 metre at their lift positions. Both models have a choice of boom angle settings for even greater adaptability. A 300kg and 500kg manual brake winch supplies the lifting capabilities of the Backsaver Crane. The winch incorporates a load friction brake that is automatically activated when the handle is released – keeping the load safely in position at all times. They are alternatively available with 12 volt and 24 volt DC electric winches. Dynex fibre ropes are available as an alternative to the standard galvanised ropes. They are extremely light and exceed the strength of steel wire rope of the same diameter.
The Backsaver Cranes are fitted with 3600 mechanical slewing by means of a worm drive gear. This eliminates the danger of the crane boom swinging out of control when the load is taken up. The boom can only be rotated slewed by operating the slew control handle. This important safety feature keeps the load under control at all times – essential for one-person operation.
Backsaver crane is suitable for industrial, marine and rural applications, it is easy to assemble and can be fitted almost anywhere – to jetties, utes or tray tops and to a wide variety of fixed platforms. If it’s got to be lifted, do it the safe, easy way, with a Backsaver Crane.
