Hoeflen Spider Cranes®
Buy a mini crane
In the past, construction workers lifted heavy loads at the job site themselves. Large windows, heavy beams, the list goes on. But those times are gone.
We know how damaging heavy lifting is as we age. Working condition regulations no longer allow it either. With good reason!
But what do we do in tight spaces that a crane can’t reach? Of course there is the chainfall, but their use is time-consuming and leads to frustration.
The result is that workers often do it anyway: carry that heavy object inside just this once. There is no need!
Mini crane Hoeflon C1
Our smallest powerhouse lifts up to 600 kg. Impressive, considering its small size and low weight. Its small dimensions allow it to go anywhere. The various drive options mean this machine can be used in any environment. This includes places like hospitals, where exhaust gases from a combustion engine are absolutely forbidden. Therefore we give you the option of choosing which drive you want to have built into your machine. Have a look at the options to see the choices you have for the C1.
C4 Functional basic crane
The Hoeflon C4 (successor to the C605) lifts up to 2 tonnes. Quite a capacity for such a compact crane. The transport flexibility is thanks to its expandable crawler tracks (75 to 110 cm) and the low centre of gravity. This makes it ultra-stable.
In addition, its new weight is low. So you can easily transport it on a trailerfor vehicles with a lower towing capacity. Finally, its compact dimensions mean you can take it anywhere.
C6 Powerful all-rounder
Multifunctional, robust and very simple operation – that’s the C6 compact crane in a nutshell. It’s a best seller in the mini crane category. This crane is ideal for placing glass and accurately positioning steel beams.
It is the only compact crane which can lift more than its own weight. This makes it possible for one crane to lower another into an underground space.
C10 Large powerhouse
The minicrane C10 is our very strongest crane: this compact crane lifts up to 4 tonnes. And that’s despite the fact that its own weight is just 5 tonnes. You wouldn’t think it to look at it though: it’s slim enough to fit through any door.
TC1 Tracked Carrier
Our transport carrier, the Hoeflon TC1, can pass through any door. Wherever your goods are located, our dolly gets there.
The TC1 has a rotating plateau, 40 centimetres high. It has a low centre of gravity and features precise manoeuvring. It easily drives around bends, even with a load. The TC1 can also drive up very steep inclines.
It’s an ideal machine in combination with the crane.
VL500 Vacuum glass suction lifter
Our glass suction lifter has a unique feature: it can be radio controlled. This allows you to operate it at great height.
The VL500 hoists 500 kg.
Suction cups are removable. You can also fit extra suction cups, for long panes. Also works well for grabbing small panes from the glass rack. The large vacuum buffers make quick installation a snap.

You will more than recover the investment through fewer employee injuries and less lost time.
The fastest mini-crane stands 20 metres tall within 3 minutes. Ready for hoisting in no time!
Among all the multifunctional cranes, our controls are simplest. Rental companies that want to rent cranes without an operator are among our most loyal customers. What’s more, all the mini-cranes, with the exception of the C10, can be transported on a trailer. The C1 even fits in a cargo van and passenger lift.
Machines with IQ; that’ll be clear when you start using them. Intelligent cranes that you can start using straight away, without making any settings. This allows you can focus on the hoisting job rather than the crane configuration. The safety features built into our cranes don’t get in your way; they make your job easier. Load value, boom angles and lengths are all shown on the display of the remote control. Hoeflon machines are fully operable from the remote control, including driving and the levelling jacks.
