Free Standing Crane

Versatile freestanding hydraulic crane

  • Capacity 350kg at 4m reach
  • 330° slewing angle
  • Movable on a hard floor on its own skates
  • 2 x high capacity 12 volt batteries with manual switch-over gives all-day operation
  • CTEK marine battery charger included

AquaGen use compact, movable hydraulic cranes at their broodstock units in Norway to lift brailers of fish out of the tanks for egg and milt harvesting and commissioned Norfab to supply a similar unit in Scotland.

The crane had to be freestanding, movable by forklift indoors, and have a capacity of 350kg at 4m reach. We designed an adaptation of a standard light lorry crane, powered by 12 volt battery. It has some useful additional features, such as the jacking legs, which enable it to reach across the top of the tanks with ease. We supplied a set of heavy-duty skates to put under the feet, so that it can be pushed across the floor or fine-adjusted into position without risking damage to the tanks with the forklift.

Client Feedback

It is nice to see the silage work continuing. We have a lot of positive feedback from growers on your assistance setting up the systems, and your training of the work crews here in Nfld. It was great to hear! I think the buy-in of the work crew can make or break a project no matter how strong the concept is.

I have been using the Supermort model for approx. 10 years on four individual units on different salmon sites. I have found the structure of this unit to be very robust and capable of withstanding pretty much anything you can throw at it.
