Full Line of EC Series Cranes Available From Stellar

Garner, Iowa – Stellar Industries, Inc. now offers a full line of easy to use electric/hydraulic cranes that use environmentally friendly, non-toxic hydraulic oil. The Stellar® EC Series has five models available in a range of 6,500 ft-lbs (.99 tm) up to 38,000 ft-lbs (5.25 tm). This new environmentally friendly crane line was developed based on customer requests and will enhance the current full line of the Stellar® heavy-duty mechanic service cranes.

The EC Series crane line incorporates both hydraulic and manual boom reach, with the EC6000 reaching out 21-feet. All the EC Series cranes have a short stow length and a low profile, both of which allow the crane to fit nicely behind the chassis cab when not in use.

The boom design of the EC Series line features a “Piggy-Back” or Double Boom design, providing considerably more strength than traditional square boom designs. This new crane line also boasts a true worm gear rotation of a full 410 degrees (EC2000 has a 340˚ rotation) that uses a high-strength steel ball bearing turntable gear, a high-strength steel worm gear, and a cast-steel worm gear housing.

The entire EC Series crane line also comes equipped with a state-of-the-art radio remote control and it also utilizes environmentally friendly hydraulic oil that is non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and that is recyclable and biodegradable. Both come standard and are industry first features for this class of crane.

Other features worth noting include specifically designed and manufactured hydraulic cylinders for each particular model, allowing the crane to effectively and efficiently lift what it is designed to lift. The planetary winch system is equipped with a permanent magnet electric motor with a planetary gear reduction system that ensures the winch will never quit lifting before it reaches the cranes full rated capacity.

“In addition to the success we’ve experienced with the current heavy-duty crane line, we were getting numerous requests from our distributors and end users to market a more economical version of a electric/hydraulic crane,” says Tim Davison, Product Manager, bodies and cranes. Davison continues, “Based on that market demand and the expertise we developed over the years with the previous models of mechanics cranes, it was the right decision to develop a feature laden crane at a lower price point.” He continues, “We are confident the EC Series will dominate the electric/hydraulic crane market. Our lifting performance will meet or exceed that of other competitive cranes in this market class.” Davison concludes, “But what will put this line above all the others is the great feature ensemble, which includes a radio remote control, a durable rotation system, the environmentally friendly hydraulic oil and the new piggy-back boom system, which brings the hex boom like strength to an economical price point.”
