Crane up to 14m arm reach

The Kirin crane is the newly developed successor of the well-known MT400 crane.


These features make the Kirin Crane the perfect tool on the set, both with Remote Head and with a manned platform!

Due to its modular concept from the jib to the platform crane to the outstanding camera crane with 14m range, it is extremely versatile!

The feedback, ideas and wishes of many users all over the world have been implemented with this new crane concept. The crane can be assembled in the shortest possible time thanks to the modular lightweight construction and the new locking mechanism.

The patented Hart-Coat® surface treatment effectively protects the crane from scratches and other external influences. Backlash-free connecting plates and additional struts increase the stability of the crane system. In developing this new crane concept, safety and user-friendliness have always been paramount.


The KIRIN KRAN SYSTEM is the result of countless feedback from our customers all over the world. But even though we have been working with greatest care and attention to detail in the development of this new camera crane, there is absolutely nothing like the real stress test in its “natural habitat” – the film set.

In order to improve even the very last details, the KIRIN was used in several productions (here during the shooting of “Wild Republic”). Always with the aim of developing a user-friendly, versatile, robust and reliable camera crane that users will love.
