COLCHESTER TILLAGE has introduced a range of Swedish-built Tico Viking vehicle-mounted cranes designed for vans and pickups.
The Tico range consists of four models with lifting capacities from 500kg (9.8cwt) on the Tico 50 model up to 1,900kg (37.4cwt) on the largest Tico 235 crane.
Each model is self-contained with the support column housing the oil tank and electro-hydraulic power pack.
The cranes are fixed to a vehicle by a simple subframe, which locates the loader and stabilisers.
The subframe is fitted behind the cab of a chassis cab or beneath the load platform of a van or pickup.
Once attached to the vehicle chassis, the crane is then connected to a 12v or 24v power supply.
Hose rupture valves and overload protection are built in to the cranes, together with a self-retarding slewing mechanism.
When not in use the Tico crane folds down to allow maximum use of the cargo area. Prices for the Tico range start at £755.
