Its high-capacity crane allows pipes to be lifted easily and safely, and its pipe handling system with two independent telescopic arms, each with a load capacity of 300 kg (660 lb), is capable of handling pipes from 4–8 in. dia (100–200 mm). For ventilation installation, MINELIFT 4 is available with an auxiliary lift platform that provides a load capacity of 2,500 kg (5,500 lb) and raises 1,100 mm (43 in.) from the main platform.
