MT 400 Heavy duty crane

With only two different bracing and parallelogram bars as well as corresponding crane-arm segments with a length of 1 m and 1.5 m, the MT crane system is the compelling choice due to its extremely short set-up times. Thanks to its intelligent connection system, the “push pins” which were forever being lost at the filming location are now a thing of the past.
The MT 400 is entitled to bear the BG-PRÜFZERT badge.

  • smart connection system averts loosing the safety locking pushpins
  • bracing rods can be stored in crane segments
  • by using a smaller additional bracing (accessory part) the crane may be assembled in a more compact version

Crane boom with levelling:

The MT-400 Boom is equipped with a rotary and vertical levelling. This allows the user to adjust the zero point even if the crane is loaded.

Tool-free locking-system:

The crane segments can be connected without any tools. The MT 400 fast locking function shortens the setup time considerably. The system has a safety function and is designed to prevent the loss of any small parts.

Handles for transport:

Every segment of the MT 400 has a handle for transport. Another helpful feature: The bracing bars can be stowed in the segments.

The new transport cart for the MT-400:

A well designed system customized for the parts of the MT-400. The whole crane fits on the system and can be transported with it, for example from the lorry to the set. The Transport system “onboard” also allows a direct view on all components.
