The latest SPX1280 Jekko mini crane arrived in the UAE for the first time and was delivered to Jekko’s dealer AJI Heavy Equipment Rental in Dubai.

AJI, which is about to also take delivery of a a SPX532, runs a diverse fleet of close to 500 units in the UAE consisting of a full range of powered access, mini cranes (included SPX312, SPX424, JF40) and cleaning equipment.

“We have been eagerly awaiting the SPX1280 as it brings a new dimension into the market, we saw it was the outrigger footprint and flexibility what truly set it apart from its competitors, when we placed our order at launch last year. We have a couple of interesting projects lined up for the unit and can’t wait to get it on site”, AJI general manager Dean Jones.

The SPX1280 was officially presented at the end of 2019 and has already been a great success. This versatile mini crane, the biggest of SPX line so far, reaches 26.6 metres in height (with jib).

The core of this crane is its new stabilization system and the well-known hydraulic jib with three extensions that can be stowed either under or on the side of the main boom. The new hydraulic system allows smoother and more precise operation, for a greater feeling of control for the operator.

This 100 per cent electronically-operated supply system has been enhanced to offer new functions such as jib extension and arm lifting at the same time, smoother and more performing tracks, operation while combining four functions at a time.
