Types of Mini Cranes for Hire at Membrey’s

Mini Cranes

Have you been looking for mini crane hire for your worksite or project? Membrey’s mini crane hire in Melbourne has a versatile range of crawlers that can be conveniently used in cramped or tight spaces due to their relatively small size.

Mini cranes are compact and typically have a minimal tail swing radius, making them a practical choice for jobs in tight spots, building sites and project constructions conducted in roads or pavements. Due to their compact size, they can be easily transported to your worksite via a truck. Below are some of the awesome mini cranes we have for hire at Membrey’s Transport and Crane Hire.


The UNIC URW-295 is a mini crawler crane that is compact enough to fit through your average doorframe, making it the perfect choice for jobs in narrow and hard to reach spaces. It has a lifting power of 2.9 tonnes and a maximum working radius of 8.41m. The working capacity of this mini spider crane is 2.9t x 1.4m. This machine is suitable for glass installations, cladding panel installations, steel beams, and spa relocation.

The URW-295 is outfitted with a range of innovative safety and operation features, including:

  • A computer-controlled moment limiter

The UNIC URW-376 has similar features to the URW-295, however it can be controlled from the onboard operator’s seat and also from a distance via the radio remote control.


With heavy lifting power and ultimate flexibility, this crane is suitable for a vast range of lifting applications.
