Air Technical Industries (ATI) has introduced a V-Master crane model that can lift 2,000 pounds up to 12 ft high. The new VM-2000 crane is suitable for shop maintenance or assembly or it can be taken out in the field for work in a customer’s facilities or remote work areas. It is mobile and portable.
The VM-2000 can lower its swivel eye hook all the way to the floor level and raise up to 12 feet high. With the short gooseneck extension, the boom offers additional reach and clearance for larger loads.
The crane has removable, telescopic 2-position legs. The short position provides for more compact operation with 1,500 pounds capacity, and the extended position offers the full 2,000 pounds capacity and requires no counterweight to be added.
The unit is equipped with non-marking polyurethane coated roller-bearing mounted wheels and a tee-screw floor lock. The lifting action is hydraulically operated, electrically powered by 12VDC battery power unit. Alternative 120VAC plug-in power is also available.
