Question: What load range is applicable for Cranemaster units?
Answer: The different Cranemaster units cover a load range from 1-700T. Each unit is designed for a specific load range, and they can be arranged in parallel (doubling the load) or series (doubling the stroke) which gives you a variety of settings. Read more about the Cranemaster load range on our product pages.
Question: What additional information and equipment do you get when you order a Cranemaster unit?
Answer: The unit comes with certified shackles already mounted in each end. User manuals, certificates and project specific gas pressure instructions are sent, together with a gas filling set which include manometer, minimess hose, minimess tong and adapters.
Cranemaster can also provide booster pumps, digital manometers and service engineers if necessary.
The only thing our clients might need to provide themselves is nitrogen (class 2.6). This is only needed if the gas pressure needs to be adjusted.
