Jekko expands minipicker line9 March 2020
Jekko has expanded its minipickers line with the introduction of the MPK06, a new self-propelled electric crane that operates with either hook or manipulator.
The MPK06 minipicker has compact size and limited weight yet it lifts up to 600kg (1.322lb). It has a dual operating mode, with a hook or a vacuum manipulator for glazing.
Other unique features of this crane are the 360° continuous rotation of the manipulator and the 10° right-and-left electrical rotation of the turret, which moves the load to the sides,while still having quite a reduced overall size and enabling access to the most confined places.
The machine is 100% electrically powered, both during travel and in arm operation. It is fitted with a 3kW motor powered by 2 x 12V-155Ah traction batteries for constant performance during use. “The electric motor is silent and emission-free for indoor operation; the new electric actuators, whose performance compares to that of regular hydraulic cylinders, deliver up to three fast and smooth movements at a time without performance loss,” said Jekko.
“The MPK06 has no hydraulic parts: this means lower maintenance costs and makes the crane ideal for work in the most sensitive contexts since oil leaks are prevented. The manipulator electric rotation and the electric extension of the second boom are available as an option.”
The drawbar on board the machine makes it easy to drive it; a user-friendly wired remote control is also available, which allows the crane to travel on wheels in a straight line in combination with the mechanical block on the drawbar, making work easier and more accurate for the operator during installation.
The MPK06 is fitted with a simple system of modular and removable counterweights accounting for a total of 200kg. They can be removed whenever the machine has to be hoisted with a crane or moved in a lift so its weight it brought down to as little as 720kg.
Compact in size and reduced in weight, this minipicker is ideal to be transported inside a regular van.
“The unique features of this new minipicker by Jekko make it fit for several sectors. It is ideal not only for glazing and for the installation of windows and doors, but also for the craft sector, for industrial maintenance and for the hiring business in general. Equipped with sturdy metal sheet housings and off-road run-flat tyres, the MPK06 faces the most challenging yard conditions. For indoor operations, white no-marking tyres are available as an option,” said Jekko.
