New MX-480 Crane Truck makes heavy lifting a sure thing

Compact design boasts extendable rear-facing telescopic crane and four hydraulic outriggers for excellent balance, capacity and reach.

Confidently lift and haul heavy loads of up to 2,000 lbs. The multi-purpose MX-480 Boom Crane is more efficient than a chain block and can access tight spaces other lift systems cannot, thanks to its compact design, 150″ turning radius and extendable, rear-facing boom crane. Standard features include four hydraulic outriggers for worry-free stability, a high-efficiency AC powertrain and controller, direct drive differential and large drum brakes. A sturdy, easy-to-operate vehicle with excellent maneuverability, traction and braking—even when hauling heavy loads.


Operators who regularly need to access, lift and haul heavy loads in tight spaces will like what they see with the Motrec MX-480 Crane Truck. This newest addition to the Motrec family of hardworking industrial electric vehicles offers all the lifting power and reach of a much larger machine, but in a much more compact and easy-to-maneuver design – without any loss of balance.

The MX-480 Crane Truck is not only compact; it’s also customizable. What’s more, it boasts an impressive 150″ turning radius along with a long list of standard features for optimizing performance and lowering maintenance, such as a high-efficiency AC powertrain and controller, direct drive differential and large drum brakes.

Much more efficient and safer than a chain block

“Worrying about stability and lifting power when handling heavy loads is no laughing matter – especially when you have little room to maneuver. That’s why we designed the MX-480 Crane Truck to be a compact yet extremely powerful multi-purpose workhorse. It can access cramped spaces other lift systems cannot and still safely lift up to 2,000 lbs. Its extendable, rear-facing telescopic crane offers impressive reach, while four hydraulic outriggers ensure worry-free stability.”
