Stronger. Lighter. Faster.
The Aircraft Aluminum Crane Sections are ribbed, giving the structure 4x strength yet keeping the crane lightweight. Sections connect with each other quickly and easily by a tool-less push fit mechanism saving your valuable production time. Sections are powder coated which keeps it scratch free and making it elegant at the same time.
High Strength Stress Cables
The high strength stainless steel stress cables keep the crane setup completely rigid & straight. Cables get quickly connected to the crane with the easiest locking system which saves a lot of time. The stress cable also keeps the head plate parallel to the ground. To divide the load equally on all the stress cables, the rods of the stress cables have been kept at an angle of 120degrees from each other keeping the setup stable from every direction.
Freedom to Concentrate with New Features
Pan and Tilt Disc Lock
The disc lock enables the operator to move the crane on one axis when required or take completely static shots allowing you to concentrate on the shot and not worrying about unnecessary movements. The locks also provide protection for your equipment by securely locking the crane in place.
Self-Tilting LCD Mount
The LCD Mount comes with a self-tilting mechanism that keeps the monitor at eye level and hence enables the operator to view the monitor even when the crane is lifted totally upwards.
LCD not included
Dolly & Jib Stand
The jib-stand locks easily, safely & tightly into the dolly. Constructed from solid aluminum, the dolly & the jib-stand have an ample spread that pushes the center of gravity lower towards the ground providing a stable foundation for stable shots. The dolly gives you the flexibility to move the crane as & when required. Being telescopic, the stand’s height can be adjusted according to shooting requirements.
Pan-Tilt Head Slide Mounting
Based on the principle of reducing setup time, the pan-tilt slide head mounting made quite easier & absolutely tool-less. In seconds, the head gets attached with the crane by sliding into the mounting of the crane smoothly & accurately. Just tighten the knobs & the head is safely mounted.
Pan-Tilt Head Leveling
The unique mounting also features a leveling feature so that you can level the head quickly after it has been mounted.
