SkidCrane is a compact , fully functional , hydraulically controlled crane attachment for skid steers that is meant to be easily transported and work in confined spaces.
Operation of the SkidCrane is completed a remote controlled electronic hydraulic system with cable hoist , boom tilt , boom rotation , boom extension and retraction , and outrigger controls.
The ability to set up near the point of lift allows SkidCrane to complete the work of a larger crane that would need to reach over long distances.
The SkidCrane can be driven with a load on hard , flat surfaces and maneuvered into small spaces , even fitting through standard double doors , using the skid steer powertrain.
It can lift loads of up to 5,000 pounds to heights of greater than 43 feet , as much as a dedicated crane at twice the cost , according to the company. SkidCrane was designed by a construction company owner , and is meant for all skid steer users looking for a solution to meet the lifting needs of small and medium construction sites.
