Concord Access Solutions’ Spider Crane Catalogue

UNIC URW – 295 Spider Crane

The 295 spider crane is a mini spider crane with a 2.9t crane capacity. This rugged little unit is known for its reliability and mobility. The crane is just 0.6m, meaning it can fit through a standard door frame. The 8.65m boom has a maximum lifting height of 8.8m, but the addition of an optional fly jib can give a further 1500mm reach where required.

UNIC URW – 376 Spider Crane

The URW-376 spider crane is capable of lifting loads of up to 2.9t. It has a lifting height of up to 14.9 metres. The crane features a six-section hydraulic boom to allow a maximum working radius of 14.45m. The crane can be operated by remote control, allowing extra flexibility and safety.

UNIC URW – 547 Spider Crane

This mini spider crane features a maximum lifting height of 18.6 metres and lifting capacity of 4t. It offers a radio remote control, ensuring the crane can be safely operated from a distance in hazardous situations. This mini crane also includes turnover protection with stability warning lamps and safety warning alarms, all of which help prevent the risk of the crane tipping.

URW – 547 Hybrid Spider Crane

Offering the same capabilities, lifting height, and lifting capacity as the URW-547, the Hybrid model simply offers a hybrid engine that can run on both diesel and electric capacities.

How much can a spider crane lift?

Lifting capacity of a spider crane really depends on the type of machine you choose and the load that needs lifting. In the Concord Access Solutions fleet, we start with the URW-295 spider crane with a lifting capacity of 2.9t and go up to the URW-1006 with a lifting capacity of 10t.
