Italian spider and mini crawler crane manufacturer Jekko has started shipping the 3.2 tonne SPX532 spider crane.
Launched at Bauma, the new crane has an overall width of 770mm, overall length of 1.96 metres and an overall height of 3.12 metres, while overall weight is 2,350kg. Maximum tip height is 17.3 metres with jib and maximum radius is 14.8 metres. The crane also features 360 degree continuous slew and can be operated via remote control. The SPX532 is available with lithium battery technology or with dual diesel/AC electric power packs.
Export manager Alberto Franceschini said: “The new SPX532 project is the result of having listened to the precise needs of an increasingly large and continuously evolving market, that of special lifting. Our pioneering experience gained over 20 years in the mini crane sector, combined with comprehensive knowledge of the truck mounted crane sector, has allowed Jekko to develop a product that combines sophisticated solutions used in the world of mobile cranes with the simplicity and sturdiness typical of truck mounted cranes. The SPX532 signals a very important change in direction in the design and creation of new products, which will inevitably impact on the development of future products. Machines that are not only innovative and sophisticated as they were in the past, but also easy to use and available to an increasingly wide customer base.”
Chief executive Diego Tomasella added: “It will be the highest performing single door machine on the market. The SPX532 is the first mini crane created as part of the project to update the entire range and this result is possible thanks to the use of sophisticated materials and easily controlled electronics. Our markets of reference are primarily Germany, Holland and Belgium, followed by France, Spain, UK, Italy, Asia, the Middle East and America. Expectations are high and the numerous orders already received at Bauma confirm that we are moving in the right direction.”
