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.

Yes I agree with that and I have friends "true friends"  because I knew when to say yes and no for the right reason.  Thanks for the welcome and wisdom.

Tim is a top notch guy.  I have one of his 10' platforms, in fact the top photo is of my guys installing some channel letters.  I've had it since 2013.  Great for installation work, especially if you have the jib in the basket, only need one truck on the install.

    • Most LED MFG's will just suggest layouts and tell you how many LEDs per foot without telling you how their LEDs will match up against the Standard Lighting in our industry which is Fluorescent HO Lamps.  If you haven't done any lighting for cabinets or never noticed, most fall short of even meeting the luminance that Fluorescent lamps give out on a sign face.   The light that falls short is known as "Usable Light", or light that just gets you there.  It's not Competitive lighting that you would need if your sign I located in a shopping center in competition with other signs looking to be noticed.   So here we have our new BrightON II....       The conventional Fluorescent HO (800ma High Output) Lamp light output is the standard in the Electric Sign Industry.  When loaded, configured, and installed correct with no cross talk, these lamps and ballasts are a VERY good light source that last for years.   Our High Efficient High-End BrightON IV HO LED modules match the light output of Fluorescent HO lamps of our longtime Electric Sign Standards in lighting applications.  More Light for Lesser Power   The Brighton IV LED is Constant Current, uses a High Efficient chip for illumination, mounted on a Aluminum PCB for better thermal cooling...not that we need Aluminum for a chip that is already under driven and produces less heat & resistance due to operating on a 24V System.   With the BrightON IV you'll save money in project costs over buying specialized proprietary channels/bars (Another reason for a sale) by simply purchasing some right angle aluminum channels for the top and bottom of a sign cabinet, and placing aluminum tubing in between to mount your High-End low cost BrightON IV LEDs on.         Double Face Sign Test Cabinet  4’ x 4’ x 12” D Module to face 5” Sign Face 3/16” Plexiglas MC White #7328       Fluorescent HO Lamp System Lamps in single and double faces cabinet fabrication typically are spaced 12” OC (On Center) Sign Face Luminance: 156.5 Foot Candles Power Consumption: 126 Watts     BrightON IV Double Face Sign Cabinet Spacing.  8” OC Module to Module, 12” OC Between Rows for Module to Sign Face in depths of 5” or 3” 5” Module to Sign Face Luminance: 156.5 Foot Candles 3.5” Module to Sign Face Luminance: 164 Foot Candles Power Consumption: 76.8 Watts   126 Watts - 76.8 Watts = 39% Savings in Energy Consumption   Single Face Spacing Suggestions 5” Depth, 9” - 9.5” spacing between rows, 7.5” - 8.5” spacing between modules 3” Depth, 8” - 9” spacing between rows, 8” - 9” spacing between modules     BrightON IV Usable Light Spacing If you want and need "Usable Light", here it is...some cases call for it.  This lighting would be slightly brighter than Hanley's NRG4.   Double Face Sign Cabinet Spacing.  9.5” OC Module to Module, 12” OC Between Rows for Module to Sign Face in depths of 5” or 3” Sign Face Luminance: 134.5 Foot Candles Power Consumption: 64 Watts   126 Watts - 76.8 Watts = 49% Savings in Energy Consumption         Why use the BrightON IV LED?   • For starters it's Constant Current unlike using Principal LED's Constant Voltage Qwik Mods or others.  Constant Current means each module is current regulated with translates to longer life.   • It's a 24 Volt system, which means our system has half the current running through the wiring and board which translates to half the heat & resistance of a 12 volt system.  In other words....Longer Life.   • With a 24V system you're able to use more LED modules on a single 96W channel over a 60W channel.       BrightON IV Aspects     24V High Performance, High Brightness LED Module Half the Amperage, Less Heat & Resistance than a 12V LED Module Aluminum PCB 40 Modules Per Bag 32.5’ (Full Stretch) 1.23 Modules Per Foot Constant Current Regulated, NOT Constant Voltage 175˙ High Efficiency Uniformity Optics 5 year, 50K Lifetime U.L.

    • I can only speak for myself but.....I'd be embarrassed to be listed in the newest Signs of The Times June Issue of "Women In Signs"   For as long as I've been in the Sign Industry, and that's since the Spring of 1993...Women have always been in STRONG and POWERFUL positions in the Sign Industry from Sales, Project Management & Ownership.   This Sign Brochure and Rag does (which is what it is slowly creeping back too) nothing more other than Handicap Women.    Women don't need a special issue, trophy, notoriety to underline their "doings" or "Accomplishments", they've been doing it for decades and as long as I can remember.  Well, at least the "Spartan" like Women I know of this industry.  We live in a Merit driven society and we're always judged/advanced by our own production and accomplishments based on our own individual efforts, that's what this country grants us no matter our gender, religion, or background....and we have NO ceiling or cap.     There may be a few in our industry that feel like they can't make it in the world without some sort of handicap, or cut in line because of their gender, religion or background....but I don't know them...well, I'll walk that back...I know a few...VERY few.       I don't know what this rag is trying to get at with this issue, but it's really NOT a Sign of The Times...it's really "Behind the Times".    An article of "The People of The Sign Industry" would be a far better read, and across better merit base rather than "gender" victimization.....Finding content to write about must be slow right now.  
    • We use Cirrus out of New Hampshire which is another U.S. made system and they have great customer service and warranty on their product - our customers that can not afford watchfires are happy with this emc - they have financing as well 
    • I have been a Watchfire dealer for years and I am very happy with them but I am looking for a cheaper second option for my customers who just cannot afford a Watchfire EMC. Just curious if anyone can give me direction on a cheaper sign that they have been satisfied with. Thank you!
