Brazilian sales and rental company Guindaste Aranha has taken delivery of the first 3.2 tonne Jekko SPX532 in Brazil. The unit is also the first to arrive in South or Central America.
Launched last year the SPX532 has a maximum tip height of 17.3 metres with hydraulic luffing jib, while maximum radius is 14.8 metres. The crane also features 360 degree continuous slew and can be operated via its remote controller. The new model joins a number of other Jekko spider cranes in the Guindaste Aranha fleet.
It has an overall width of 770mm, overall length of 1.96 metres and a total weight of 2,350kg. It is available with a lithium-ion battery pack or dual diesel/AC electric power.
Based in São Paulo, Guindaste Aranha (Spider Crane) has been the Jekko distributor for two years. The company also offers Kegiom cranes and KSF lifting equipment, as well as running a rental fleet with more than 80 spider and pick & carry cranes, plus glass handling equipment and push around one person mast lifts.
Director Jefferson Candeo said: “Thanks to the compact dimensions and footprint, smaller than the previous SPX527 and SPX536 models, the excellent lifting capacity and maximum reachable height, SPX532 is positioned between the smallest and larger spider cranes and is the right answer to both rental and sale market needs.”
“Since 2008 Guindaste Aranha has been working hard, professionally and ethically to meet the needs of many sectors such as logistics, transport, hoisting in restricted and hard-to-reach places. We have sold more than 200 machines so far and have 40 cranes in our rental fleet."
