Maintainer Corporation of Iowa's newest offering is the H8524, a telescopic crane with a reach of 24 feet, 6 inches and 8,500-pound maximum lift capacity.
“This is the second 8,500-pound crane we have released this year,” explained Tom Wibben, director of sales & service for Maintainer. “The H8530 released in March helped fill the gap between our 10,000- and 7,000-pound cranes. Now this new H8524 will allow customers to conserve more payload on a Class 6 chassis as well as some of the new 2020 commercial chassis models coming soon.”
The new crane features a 52,500-ft.-lb. crane rating and a boom-mounted planetary winch. It is recommended that the crane be mounted on a chassis with a minimum 22,000-pound GVW. A dual-outrigger package is available for greater stability.
The H8524 also features Advanced Crane Control 2.0, which offers better visibility of lifting loads and error codes if instability with a lift is detected. The proportional wireless remote integrates with the new switch panel assembly using a CAN System to improve operator efficiency.
Additional features of the H8524 include a low-profile boom with no need for a flip sheave, tall and short tower configurations, 615 degrees of boom rotation, and a closed-center load sensing hydraulic system.
