Here at Maeda USA, we love heavy metal. No, not music like Metallica (though Master of Puppets is a great album), heavy metal … like iron. And we love it when Maeda Mini Cranes are used by ironworkers to erect metal structures.
Recently Austin Iron, a custom architectural and structural steel company based here in Texas, rented a Maeda MC405 Mini Crane for a residential construction project on the shores of Lake Austin.
Austin Iron was contracted to erect a large steel structure, but because of the small lot size and limited access due to trees and a single-lane steel bridge, there was no room to bring in a larger crane.
The solution, a Maeda Mini Crane. Over the last couple of years, Austin Iron has utilized three different Maeda Mini Cranes on their commercial and residential markets, including a Maeda MC285 Mini Crane that they own.
With its 8,480 lb. Max Lift Capacity and 55-Inch Body Width, the MC405 was the perfect tool for the job.
Thanks for sharing, Austin Iron, and thanks for trusting Maeda Mini Cranes.
Below are some photos from the project.
