Mobile cranes

STEPA mobile cranes are flexible and versatile machines with a large number of everyday agricultural applications. These machines, often described as hay loaders or manure loaders, can be used both for jobs in the hay barn and for loading the muck spreader. They can also be used for smaller jobs involving wood when used with a log grab. The STEPA mobile crane is available in a 2- and 4-wheel version depending on the base frame and design. Depending on its location, it can be run using electricity, an additional pump or its own diesel engine.

  • S2 chassis

    S2 chassis

    Both of these chassis have two wheels and either two or four support jibs. The base frames can be easily and quickly towed to the work location using the drawbar hitch. The S2 chassis can be used for cranes with a lifting force of up to 5mt and the S4 chassis with four supports for cranes with a lifting force of up to 7mt.

    Specifications

    • Compact construction
    • Cost-effective variant
    • Extendible spindle supports
    • Hand brake prevents slipping sideways in the S2
    • Small slewing radius

    Technical information

  • A4P chassis

    A4P chassis

    You have full mobility with these automatic cranes. With four wheels you will easily be able to change work location without added tools. The optional addition of a diesel engine or the use of a mounted dual pump enable the crane to be operated away from the farmyard.

    Specifications

    • 75° steering angle
    • With swing axle
    • Complete stability without support

  • Telescopic system

    Telescopic system

    You can choose between a double or triple telescopic system depending on your requirements. The double telescope has an impressive, lightweight construction and can be supplied with a reach of up to 10m. The triple telescope system has high retraction and extension speeds. All extension booms are extended with just one cylinder. This means that distances of up to 13m can be reached.

  • Lifting boom

    Lifting boom

    Different lifting booms can be selected depending on the space available in the hay barn. The compressive lifting cylinder with the POWER LINK system provides a consistent torque and constant speed throughout the lifting boom’s entire movement range. In special cases, STEPA also provides telescopic lifting booms with an extension of up to 80cm. This means that low obstacles can be overcome or a higher haystack reached.

    • POWER LINK system
    • Optimum geometry using compressive lifting cylinder
    • Fine grain S700 steel

Rotation-Elevate-System

The licensed patent of our roation-elevate-system has all important compontents (ball bearing ring with slewing engine, distributor, hydraulic hoses and the lifting up cylinder) inside mounted. This leads to an optimal protected solution, equipped with a service cover and a simple and servcie friendly usage.

This system reduces the possibility of damages, is stronger with very compact dimensions.

Compressive lifting cylinder with POWER LINK system

The Power Link system ensures that the crane still has a large lifting force even in extreme settings. As such, loads can also be lifted easily when the lifting boom is very flat.

2 LED headlamps (more light, less heat)

Two high-quality LED headlamps not only provide a better cone of light, they also use less electricity and produce little heat.  Result: More light for less electricity and heat, as well as higher quality - comes as standard
