CraneMate VS gravity leveling work platforms. "Increased safety and productivity" are just a few words to describe how superior the state of the art CraneMate is to any of the existing gravity leveling work platform attachments. In fact, the CraneMate is often equal to or better that the man-lift platforms being offered today.
Safety Feature: The CraneMate has auto-hydraulic leveling which automatically levels the platform with it's payload inside as the boom truck articulates up and down even when the platform jib winch or platform forks are supporting a sign.
Safety Feature: The CraneMate has 180 degrees of hydraulic rotation enabling the platform to be positioned parallel to the work area. This prevents back injuries due to stretching and reaching out by one man from the corner of the platform to hold or work on hard-to-reach jobs. It also allows the platform jib winch or platform fork to precisely position and place the payload.
Productivity: The combination of leveling, rotation, jib winch and forks allows one man versus three to get the job done in record time. Depending on platform size, the 10' long CraneMate can accommodate two to three men, tools, and a large load of channel letters to make one trip up and install the works.
Productivity: Reduces travel time by often completing the job in one trip which often requires two or three with a gravity leveling system.
Productivity: The platform can be installed and stowed permanently on the boom truck for road travel, reducing job setup time.
