A Spydercrane in stealth mode?

By now, you probably know that Spydercranes have an almost endless number of practical applications, and can go almost anywhere. But did you know they can fly and operate in stealth mode? Ok, so they need the help of a Chinook helicopter for the flying part, but they have become a vital part of keeping those choppers in the air, and yes, they really can be stealthy, operating quietly and in low-light conditions to allow for maintenance and repairs in places you wouldn’t want to draw attention to yourself! Click here for the complete story of how Spydercranes are helping the British military keep its choppers in top working order, without the need to return to the hangar.

Best in the business

Designed and manufactured by the FURUKAWA UNIC Corp. in Japan, the Spydercrane is the perfect solution for medium capacity jobs. Able to handle loads between 3 and 6 tons and still fit easily into small places, the Spydercrane has applications in a variety of industries. The crane’s strength, however, is balanced by an array of stabilizing features, giving you the power and precision needed for delicate jobs like the installation of sculptures and monuments, movement of glass panels, and placement of machinery.
