Stellar launches new truck crane

Updated Dec 11, 2014

Stellar Industries, Inc. has introduced its Models 3315 and 4421 telescopic cranes, offering maximum lifting capacities in 3200 and 4000 pounds, respectively. 

A new feature to both of these cranes is the internal cylinder extension system, which is designed to the same standards as the Stellar heavy-duty crane line.

Every electric, on/off, or proportional 3315 and 4421 crane comes standard with the Stellar CDT (Crane Dynamics Technology) system.  The Stellar CDT system is a proprietary collection of revolutionary, industry first features that control, power, and monitor these new cranes. The Stellar CDT equipped cranes will engage and communicate with the crane operator by using multiple sensory indicators when approaching maximum capacity.

Three main features of this crane include the use of colored LED lights and pulsating vibrations transmitted thru the handheld remote handle.  Some Stellar CDT systems will also allow the operator to go into a Boost Mode and operate at 118% of its normal operating capacity for a short period of time when at maximum capacity.  The third revolutionary feature of the new Stellar cranes is the ability to function in safety mode when a safety feature is damaged or malfunctions.    

“Continuous product improvement and market leading innovations that make our end users more productive is one of our core goals at Stellar,” says Tim Davison, Product Manager at Stellar Industries.  “Both of these new cranes offer our usual market-leading features including the Stellar CDT Technology.” He continues, “All of these features on these new cranes will fit in nicely with the rest of our full crane line and allow us to continue to offer our customers the most advanced and innovative telescopic cranes on the market today.”

The 3315 and 4421 cranes offer optional boom configurations of two hydraulic boom extensions.  The standard configuration is one hydraulic and one manual extension.  Both cranes offer market leading boom articulation of -8˚ to +80˚. 

This allows the operator both easy reach to stow the snatch block as well as offering maximum ability to load items into the load bed, according to the company. An additional new feature to these cranes is the quick release snatch block stow hook. This can be found on the underside of the boom and allows the operator to easily un-stow and stow the snatch block. When the boom is raised to 60 degrees, the unique design allows the snatch block to gently release ensuring a safe and orderly deployment.
