With the increasingly developing capabilities of mini cranes, confined areas and complex maneuvering is no more a problem. Mini cranes have way more to offer, such as higher safety, accessible transportation, cost savings while being environmentally friendly. We at Leavitt Cranes offer Jekko Mini Cranes to our Canada customers and SPYDERCRANE in Washington and Oregon. Below are some of the most critical factors that make mini cranes a must-have for your business.
When it comes to cranes, the closer the crane is to the object being lifted, the safer the lift will be. One of the significant advantages of the mini crane is that it can access a wide range of sizes, allowing for a close crane setup and a safer lift. The small crane's outriggers (commonly called the "spider crane") provide unsurpassed safety and stability over uneven surfaces.
Mini cranes can also be used to reduce risk on a building site, such as when scaffolding needs to be replaced. When employing a tiny crane, the crawler tracks provide additional stability. The various operation options also offer improved safety when operating the mini crane. Some cranes, such as SPYDERCRANE URW706, which has 13,330 lbs. lifting capacity, can be controlled remotely when worker safety is unclear, or sight is limited.
Even if you use cranes regularly for your operations, the cost of hiring is constant, giving you peace of mind while budgeting. When you rent a tiny crane, you only have to pay the rental fee when you need the crane. There is no need to worry about maintenance, downtime, or depreciation. When planning your project, you can employ the crane only when you need it, saving you a lot of money.
The Jekko cranes offer diesel, electric, and battery (including lithium) options while maintaining the highest safety and lifting capacity standards. SPYDERCRANES are available in Propane/Gas, Diesel, Electric, and Diesel/Electric options. Contact us today to know more.
It is usually challenging to lift heavy loads in confined areas. The work calls for a small micro crane with a variable boom. These mini cranes have hydraulically powered telescopic legs that help the operator precisely position the legs for the best lifting position. Setup is quick, and the impact on their surroundings is low, thanks to electric power. They are also relatively quiet when in use. When installing items in shopping malls and offices, this is significant.
Despite their diminutive size, mini cranes can carry significant weight. The Jekko SPX1280 Crane can lift up to 16,354 lbs. with a 58ft. max horizontal and 90 ft. vertical reach, while the smallest one, SPX 312 Mini Crane, can lift approximately 2,600 lbs. Indoor applications can easily maneuver through single and double doors.
While many mini cranes run on propane, SPYDERCRANE and Jekko cranes can run on battery, diesel, or electric power. Using a mini crane for glazing jobs may require indoor work, making zero emissions necessary for the job site. Companies can consciously use electric or battery power sources for mini cranes, even on an outdoor glazing job. This is preferable for the environment and the health and safety of workers on site. When it comes to the equipment being used on-site, many work and construction sites are also concerned about emissions. SPYDERCRANE can be powered by various sources, including diesel, electric, and diesel/electric options, ideal for such use.

Mini cranes are versatile for glaziers because they can fit into areas with restricted access. They fit through standard doorways and tight corridors and perform in limited headroom, ideal for indoor work. They can also maneuver around existing structures on an outdoor job site, such as close buildings or utility poles. Mini cranes solve complex construction challenges, like weight restrictions and limited space. These mini cranes can install glass panes inside large buildings, shopping mall interior glass installation, and roof glazing. They are instrumental in urban areas where construction grows but with limited space.
