Maintainer Corporation of Iowa, Inc. adds new 16-ft. electric-hydraulic and hydraulic cranes to its line of service truck cranes. The EH3516 electric-hydraulic crane has a 15,000 ft.-lb. crane rating and maximum lift of 3,500 lbs. The crane features a planetary winch, with hoist drum and wire rope located outside of the boom for improved operator visibility.
“This crane has more hydraulic reach than competitor models of this size,” said Tom Wibben, Director of Sales and Service for Maintainer. “With the functionality and safety features incorporated into this newcrane, we think this will be a great option for customers”
The new cranes are mounted with a universal 14.75” x 14.75” or 11.5” x 14.75” bolt pattern, which allows the crane to be added to a variety of truck bodies. The EH3516 is only available in the short-tower design and includes several popular features:
- It has a 4 gpm power pack for maximized crane speeds.
- There is a self-protecting thermal shutdown built into the 12V DC motor.
- A proportional wireless crane remote is standard.
- An optional battery isolator is available to keep the crane battery charged while avoiding a drain on the
- chassis battery.
The new crane will also be offered in a full hydraulic version. The H3516 will replace the current Maintainer crane model 1115 in the product line. Both versions of the new crane offer 478° of rotation and boom elevation from -13° to +78°.
