Kito light cranes support construction-machinery hire company
Aktio Corp, a construction machinery rental company, opened its Osaka DL Centre in September 2021 at Osaka Nanko Port.
The facility operates Kito Pro Light Crane systems on 18 lines, along with 21 electric chain hoists. They move rental machines into or from the warehouse, load them on trucks and arrange them in the maintenance area.
Of the 800-900 different types of rental equipment available from the Osaka DL Centre, most are small construction machines including many Kito products.
The rated capacity of the light crane used to handle relatively heavy products is 980kg. A wireless drive unit complements the lifting range of up to 5m. Operation is very quiet and the design is minimalist, with the control buttons not getting in the way.
Manager Naoyasu Yamaguchi of the Osaka DL Centre says, “The light crane follows the worker’s movements just with light pressure, perfect for our work. Our positive experience using Kito products at the Tokyo DL Centre helped us decide on the purchases here as well.”
