Compact crawler cranes for confined spaces

Fascan International to exhibit Jekko Cranes at Lift and Access Showcase

Baltimore, Md.—Fascan International will display models of Jekko minicranes at the Lift & Access Showcase on November 8-9 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

This event is the first public announcement of Fascan’s exclusive agreement with Ormet SpA of Italy to supply Jekko minicranes to the U.S. market.

Jekko minicranes are compact crawler cranes designed to provide lifting and maneuvering capabilities in confined work areas. Each crane is equipped with retractable, stabilizing outriggers—an ideal design for operating in interior project spaces. All models are compact enough to fit through a standard single or double door. These versatile machines give operators lifting capacities ranging from 1.2 to 4.0 tons, and booms of up to 72 feet of tip height.

Operaters use Jekko minicranes for a wide range of applications, including utility servicing, steel erection, HVAC, plant maintenance, infrastructure repair and precast concrete installation.

Fascan will be displaying several of the mini cranes and mini pickers, as well as several Fassi light duty crane models, during the course of the showcase.

“Jekko products complement our substantial line of small-, medium- and heavy-duty lifting equipment," said Bernie Faloney, president and CEO of Fascan International, the exclusive U.S. distributor for Jekko. "This partnership enables Fascan to access new, end-user markets. We’re happy to be displaying Jekko cranes at the Showcase."

The Jekko minicrane’s design allows for a higher load capacity and lighter boom than similar-sized cranes. Jekko ’s integrated CAN-BUS microprocessor system gives operators precision control, and most Jekko cranes are equipped with standard radio remote control for boom functions.
