Advantages at a glance
The strategic positioning of the driver’s cabin directly under the boom provides an unrestricted view of the deck and the cargo hold for the crane driver. The wide rope field at the hook provides for safe operation and optimal positioning of the cargo. The double-acting hydraulic cylinders support the boom in all positions.
The low construction height of the CBW facilitates high levels of visibility and safety on deck. The low weight as well as the low centre of gravity ensure enhanced ship stability and greater crane capacity. Due to the short minimum radius, it is possible to place the goods in the immediate vicinity of the crane. Since the boom is parked over the load, there is more space for your goods.
Maintenance-free chrome and nickel-coated hydraulic cylinders and robust electronic components facilitate economical and low-maintenance operation.
No influence on the on-board electrical system
The CBW ship crane operates without direct influence on the on-board electrical system as return currents are automatically neutralized.
