Stellar Industries Introduces New T-Boom Style Hydraulic Cranes

Stellar Industries, Inc. has announced its new line of hydraulic cranes, called the TC Series. The TC Series offers a combination of compact European design with an American approach to sensible crane control. The TC Series is a tall mast telescopic crane commonly referred to as a “T-Boom” crane. This design offers ultimate compactness to take up minimal bed space, yet offers up to 18.6 feet of hydraulic reach to maximize the load radius of the larger models.

This style of crane has historically operated with a manual control valve requiring the operator to be near or under a suspended load. Stellar has incorporated the use of its proprietary Stellar CDTcrane control system which operates with a handheld proportional radio remote transmitter. This will allow the operator to better position themselves around the load and their work area. In addition to the remote operation, another new feature to this line is the operator feedback system. The Stellar CDT crane control system will alert the operator of the percentage of load the crane is currently lifting using a series of lights and vibrating pulses in the handled unit.
