Stellar launches six new telescopic cranes using the exclusive CDTpro Remote with Range Finder to the marketplace. These cranes are redesigns of its 9,000-lb class cranes (9621 and 9630), 10,000-lb class cranes (10621 and 10630) and 12,000-lb class cranes (12621 and 12630).
The Stellar® 96 Series, 106 Series, and 126 Series cranes feature nearly 13% (330 lbs) reduced weight for 30-ft cranes. The 21-ft cranes feature about 10% (210 lbs) reduced weight compared to previous models. Yet, the cranes still maintain the same strength. This ultimately creates more payload for the operator.
Some of the biggest improvements include updating the boom from a hexagonal design to an octagonal design. Stellar also decreased the size of the boom tip. This newer, more compact boom design allows the cranes to maintain strength and creates an easier reach for smaller spaces.
“Our customers have loved these improvements on the 76 Series and 86 Series class cranes,” says Adam Oppermann, Stellar product manager. “And we are excited to be able to introduce them to our larger classes to maximize the efficiency of our equipment and ultimately provide even more opportunities for our customers to get the job done.”
THE CDTpro REMOTE
Additionally, the redesigned cranes come with an ergonomically correct and balanced remote control—the Stellar CDTpro with patent-pending Range Finder. This proprietary remote was designed to improve ergonomics and increase usability. The single-hand remote delivers smooth operation with control for precise load placements while allowing for multiple functions to run simultaneously.
The Range Finder feature allows the operator to create a lift plan without ever needing to unstow the crane. This world-first technology estimates distance and calculates crane capacities where the operator is holding the radio remote.
With a suite of feedback screens, the Stellar CDTpro includes current load of the crane and distance to maximum capacity. It also sends vibratory alerts to inform the operator they are approaching maximum load capacity.
“As cranes and controls evolve, so do the technologies and products at Stellar as we continue to innovate,” Oppermann continues. “The redesigned 96 Series, 106 Series, and 126 Series cranes provide more options for a job demanding precision, durable strength, and a lighter design.”
