Maintainer Custom Bodies (MCB) is proud to announce the introduction of a revolutionary new product for the rescue industry. The Scene Commander series is being launched in conjunction with the opening of the exhibit halls at FDIC International 2017.
The Scene Commander upfits the new EH Cranes from Maintainer Corporation of Iowa, Inc. for rescue situations. In addition to the rescue crane, the Scene Commander incorporates a powerful remote-controlled LED Spot/Flood light onto the end of the boom. In addition, an optional camera can be mounted at the end of the boom as well. The wireless night vision camera can send video feed wirelessly to the truck or a mobile device.
“Adding a crane to your rescue arsenal will have many advantages,” said MCB National Sales Manager Tom Leckband. “When you add a scene light and camera, the reach and rotation of the crane will allow the operator to have visibility in areas they might not have been able to view previously.”
There are currently two models of electric-hydraulic extendable boom cranes available, both of which have a 20’ reach. The EH5520 has a 30,000 foot*pound crane rating and has maximum lift of 5,500 pounds. The EH4520 can lift 4,500 pounds and has a max lift moment of 20,000 foot*pounds. The cranes feature a planetary winch mounted on the boom to maintain cable tension. A proportional wireless crane remote is standard. The cranes offer 580° of rotation and boom elevation from -13° to +78°.
“The idea for the Scene Commander developed after talking with FDIC attendees last year,” explained Leckband. “The first unit was placed on a rescue for Miami Township, Ohio. They perform many river rescues, but their access to the water is limited. The Scene Commander will allow them to lower their boat from a bridge, saving time and allowing more access points.”
MCB invites you to see the Scene Commander and Miami Township’s MCB Rescue Vehicle at FDIC Booth# 4749 in the Indiana Convention Center April 27-29, 2017. More details and specifications on the Scene Commander and options are available online at: Scene Commander
