Press release date: January 31, 2011


[January 31, 2011] Mentor, Ohio-Air Technical Industries announces the launch of the NEW RBC-50000SPBW Self-Propelled Walk-Behind Mobile Crane. The first of its kind, it is Eco-Conscious and energy-efficient in lifting-transporting technologies with the mighty muscle power of 50,000 lbs capacity. Designed for indoor use where heavy components need to be lifted, transported, positioned, installed and assembled to help make your job easier, along with satisfying the green initiative. Keep the facility cleaner, quieter, and safer, with environmental overtone; no fumes, no gas, no smell, no smoke, just mighty power and flexibility.

The crane can lift up to 50,000 lbs and up to 240 inches high. It is self-propelled with infinitely variable speed controls. It features power steering with sharp turning to each side making it very easy to maneuver. The powered telescopic boom will reach beyond, over and under, or into hard to reach places. These features make it ideal for lifting components such as large castings, motors high up on to a pedestal, gen-packs, compressors, boilers, transformers and aircraft engines. It can be used for many applications such as assembly work, loading trucks, container handling, etc.

The unit is user friendly. It is very simple and easy to operate with dual controls for greater flexibility. All controls are push button operated and built into the steering handle. It has another control on a remote pendant so that operators can align the load precisely where needed. The unit featured is equipped with an optional Gooseneck Boom to reach into tight spots between the ceiling and highest positioned item for installation and removal. This is ideal for low-headroom applications.

The crane travels on ten (10) polyurethane wheels to reduce and spread floor loading and to protect the floor. All wheels are equipped with precision machine roller bearings for smooth, quiet and easy mobility. The propulsion is DC battery powered 48V. Solid state control provides smooth acceleration and deceleration. An automatic braking system is built into drive wheel motors, and is applied when the controls are released. The travel speed is from 0-3 MPH.

The boom lifting, telescopic boom action, and powered steering are hydraulically operated. The hydraulic cylinder shafts are made from high carbon tough steel, ground, polished and chrome-plated, which protects from corrosion and provides smooth, efficient operation. The Hydraulic system is equipped with safety relief valves to protect the system and to prevent over loading.

The RBC-series of cranes are available in a variety of capacities and sizes from 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 6000, 10,000, 15,000, 20,000, and 50,000-pound capacities. Smaller models start at only 34" wide, narrow enough to fit through a doorway.

Built to make the job ERGONOMICALLY easier and safer in any operation, the RBC will help increase efficiency, productivity, save time, and energy. Made in AMERICA with heavy-duty steel welded construction for many years of tough industrial use.
