New MX-480 Crane Truck makes heavy lifting a sure thing

Operators who regularly need to access, lift and haul heavy loads in tight spaces will like what they see with the Motrec MX-480 Crane Truck. This newest addition to the Motrec family of hardworking electric industrial vehicles offers all the lifting power and reach of a much larger machine, but in a much more compact and easy-to-maneuver design – without any loss of balance.

The MX-480 Crane Truck is not only compact; it’s also customizable. What’s more, it boasts an impressive 150″ turning radius along with a long list of standard features for optimizing performance and lowering maintenance, such as a high-efficiency AC powertrain and controller, direct drive differential and large drum brakes.

Much more efficient and safer than a chain block

“Worrying about stability and lifting power when handling heavy loads is no laughing matter – especially when you have little room to maneuver. That’s why we designed the MX-480 Crane Truck to be a compact yet extremely powerful multi-purpose workhorse. It can access cramped spaces other lift systems cannot and still safely lift up to 2,000 lbs. Its extendable, rear-facing telescopic crane offers impressive reach, while four hydraulic outriggers ensure worry-free stability.”

– Jocelyn Gagnon, Eng., Director of Engineering & Innovation

And like all Motrec electric vehicles, the MX-480 Crane Truck is a sturdy, easy-to-operate vehicle that offers excellent maneuverability, traction and braking—even when hauling heavy loads.
