Sometimes maintenance and repair work on helicopters and aircraft needs to be done in the field rather than in the comfort of a hangar.

Recently, Maeda mini cranes helped maintain aircraft and helicopters during the west coast forest fires. They had to be serviced while fighting the fire and were unable to get to the store. The maintenance teams were able to hit the helicopters in the middle of a field with a Maeda mini crane and perform the necessary maintenance to keep those helicopters aloft.

The heavy lifting capacity of the Maeda Mini Cranes as well as their ease of portability, maneuverability and ease of use provide the ability to lift up to 13,000 pounds. in unconventional and difficult situations. The mini cranes can be used in the shop or in the field for servicing helicopters and airplanes of all shapes and sizes.
