Hoeflon 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. Modern technology has allowed these unsafe practices to decrease to provide a much safer working environment for all involved.
Lifting heavy objects puts workers at risk of injury and accidents, especially as they age. Working conditions regulations do not even allow for this heavy lifting and yet it is still happening in those times when larger machinery just won’t cut it.
But what can we really do in those tight spaces that a crane can’t reach or get into? There is always the chainfall, but that option is time consuming and not always simple.
Typically, the result is that workers continue to carry the heavy objects inside themselves. This is both unsafe and unnecessary!
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.
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 center of gravity. This makes it ultra-stable.
In addition, its new weight is low. So you can easily transport it on a trailer for vehicles with a lower towing capacity. Finally, its compact dimensions mean you can take it anywhere.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Why buy a Hoeflon mini-crane?
Our mini-cranes on crawler tracks make that heavy lifting a thing of the past once and for all. If you want to keep your workers safe, the Hoeflon is for you.
The fastest mini-crane stands 20 metres tall within 3 minutes. Ready for work in no time!
Easy to Use
Among all the multifunctional cranes, the Hoeflon design is the simplest. What’s more, all the mini-cranes within this range, with the exception of the C10, can be transported on a trailer. The C1 even fits in a cargo van and passenger lift.
These machines are smart and you’ll notice that as soon as you start using one. They require no settings changes to use so you can start with them straight away! This allows you can focus on the hoisting job rather than figuring out how your crane works. 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 displayed on the remote control, from which the Hoeflon range is completely controlled.
