Fire Rescue Squads Use SpitzLift Crane to Load Equipment

Poway, CA—Over the years, SpitzLift has worked with fire and rescue teams to provide cranes for boats and fire apparatus. Most recently, fire departments like the Clearwater (FL) Fire Department see SpitzLift portable cranes as a necessity to lift safely. Fire Apparatus & Emergency Equipment magazine recently featured the aluminum portable crane on the Clearwater heavy duty rescue squad vehicle: The SpitzLift crane can be moved around the perimeter and from one vehicle to another.  

At the request of customer pilot programs, SpitzLift has announced that it has made a few upgrades to its popular aluminum lightweight portable crane. National fleets are moving toward lightening their loads and maximizing efficiency. SpitzLift is a super tool that is lightweight and payload-efficient. SpitzLift is the lightest crane available that can pick up more than 30 times its own weight. It is both a safety and efficiency tool for fleet managers and those lifting and transporting heavy materials.

SpitzLift is now offering a shut off mechanism that can be set to the exact weight being lifted. This load limiter switch increases user safety and ensures that the maximum load capacity is not reached. SpitzLift features an ergonomic design upgrade which will help to prevent over-shoulder lifting for field workers. Most work-related injuries are shoulder-related, so this upgrade safeguards against these types of injuries. With a titanium base, SpitzLift has built in safety features and has stood the test of time.

The SpitzLift portable lightweight aluminum crane, which is made in America, offers a safe, efficient solution to heavy lifting. Weighing only 30lbs, the SpitzLift is easy to install and prevents injuries sustained from heavy lifting.

SpitzLift allows the end user to use a lighter duty vehicle because it does not affect payload, therefore saving fuel. Second only to safety, limiting fuel costs is another top concern for fleet managers. An easy solution to implement is alternating Spitzlift portable cranes in place of heavy cranes. The SpitzLift crane is green and payload friendly; the tool can be used on vehicles for or on work benches, ground surfaces, rooftops, decks and more. The portable crane is made of aluminum which is recyclable and does not rust or decay with time.
