Maeda Cranes

Maeda was the first company to make spider cranes, and its spider and crawler cranes have always had the largest market share in Japan. Since 1980, Maeda has been making products to meet needs around the world. They are now the largest mini crane manufacturer in the world.

The Maeda spider crane was originally made for use in the stone industry in Japan. However, the Maeda spider crane has recently found new uses in the installation of curtain walls, glass, and plant equipment, as well as in the building and repair of factories around the world.

The Maeda spider crane is becoming more and more popular for indoor work because the electric motor gets the work done in small spaces without gas emissions.

Maeda also makes a type of mini crane called a "crawler crane." Because of the small size and tail swing of this Maeda crane, these versatile units are mostly used on construction and civil engineering sites that are tight on space.
