Stellar Industries, Inc. has introduced the Model 6521 telescopic crane. This crane offers a maximum lifting capacity of 6,000 pounds.

Every 6521 crane comes standard with the Stellar CDT (Crane Dynamics Technology) system. The Stellar CDT system is a proprietary collection of revolutionary, industry first features that control, power, and monitor these new cranes. The Stellar CDT equipped cranes will engage and communicate with the crane operator by using multiple sensory indicators when approaching maximum capacity. Three main features of this control system include the use of coloured LED lights and pulsating vibrations transmitted through the handheld remote handle. Some Stellar CDT systems will also allow the operator to go into a Boost Mode and operate at 118 percent of its normal operating capacity for a short period of time when at maximum capacity. The third revolutionary feature of the CDT system is the ability to function in safety mode when a safety feature is damaged or malfunctions.

The 6521 offers boom articulation of -10 to +80 degrees. This allows the operator both easy reach to stow the snatch block as well as offering maximum ability to load items into the load bed. An additional feature to this crane is the quick release snatch block stow hook. This can be found on the underside of the boom and allows the operator to easily un-stow and stow the snatch block.  When the boom is raised to 60 degrees, the unique design allows the snatch block to gently release ensuring a safe and orderly deployment.

The Stellar 6521 fits nicely on the Stellar TMAX 30K steel and aluminum service bodies.  With the combination of the new 6521 crane and the TMAX 30K Aluminum service body, Stellar now provides one of the lightest service truck packages in the 6,000-pound capacity range. This provides the customer the ability to carry more payload, which allows them to do more work and turn more profit in an efficient and timely manner.

"We keep an open line of communication with our customers, and we've had an increasing request to explore a crane that would serve the lifting capacities of municipal, small equipment dealer, and rental markets yet still allow them to use our new lightweight TMAX 30K series bodies, especially the Aluminum version," said Tim Davison, Product Manager at Stellar Industries. "Fulfilling customer requests, as well as the desire for continuous product improvement that makes our end users more productive, are a core purpose for us at Stellar," Davison continued, "and we feel we've done just that with this crane."
