A compact Unic mini spider crane showed off its impressive lifting power to visitors at this week’s Big 5 PMV Live show in Dubai as it successfully lifted a sporty red Mini Cooper in a live demonstration.

Like the iconic cars themselves, our Unic mini spider cranes are mini yet mighty, making them perfect for working in restricted access areas. To perform the stunt we used a Unic URW-295 mini crane which has a lifting capacity of 2.9 tonnes and can lift to a height of 8.8 metres.

The 1350kg Mini Cooper was lifted by the Unic URW-295 mini crane using a new car hoist which has been specially developed by the technical team at GGR Group for use with our range of compact cranes. The sturdy steel box sections of the below-the-hook hoist are designed to support the vehicle’s wheels so it can be lifted safely.

This pairing of matching red mini machines will be on display at the GGR-Orientals stand until 24th November at the Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre.
