The MC285-3 is by far the most popular Maeda model. This mini crane is available with a Yanmar diesel engine (standard) or in a combined drive with a diesel and (detachable) electric motor.
The outrigger can be multi-position and is controlled by a torque limiter, meaning operators can lift the maximum rated load between the outriggers when fully extended, even though the other outriggers are variably outrigged.
New features on the MC285C-3 model include the slew angle limit setting, a new 7-inch display, an HBC radio remote control and a detachable electric motor. The Yanmar diesel engine meets the requirements for the new EU Stage V gas emission standards.
