Microcranes® Now Offers Wireless Remote Abilities

Posted on September 3, 2019


Microcranes, Inc., a producer of portable battery power mini cranes since 2008, now offers a wireless remote-control solution option for the 2,000 lb. rated, 21 ft. hook height M1 Global Model pick and carry crane used indoors, outdoors and on rooftops. 

According to the company, allowing some distance between a person and a winch can make the workload more efficient and safer. Operators using wireless remote control can achieve greater visibility and accuracy so they can complete more lifts in less time while reducing operational costs and promoting more efficient use of manpower.

The Rigmaster wireless controller from Winches, Inc. (a WARN Industries partner) will control the Microcrane® M1 Model from more than 50 feet away, utilizing a superior FM based signal at 915 MHz.

The rugged and durable design of the wireless control will float in water, and the transmitter and receiver meet IP67 for weather protection.  Its operation temperature range is -20°C to +50°C (-4°F to +122°F).

When compact, the M1 Model hydraulic portable hoist fits through doorways and inside elevators for easy transport. The equipment is used in glazing, roofing, steel erection, HVAC, manufacturing, maintenance, aircraft, marine, facility, landscaping, home and commercial construction and a variety of industries globally.

Products are ISO certified. Made in the USA. CE Certified. OSHA, ASME, PALD, ANZI, CSA compliant. No operator license is required, under OSHA’s small crane compliance (rated 2,000 lbs. or less.)
