Venturo Van Cranes

Van manufacturers have been boosting production as demand increases for Euro style, high roof, cargo vans. With this in mind, Venturo has developed specialized crane applications that are the first of its kind in the industry.  The Venturo Van Cranes allow safe and productive material handling without the need for a forklift or a heavy, expensive lift gate.

This application is currently available for the Ford Transit Mid/High Roof & Mercedes Sprinter Standard/High Roof.

The Venturo Van crane utilizes a unique dual floor and ceiling mounted telescopic mast that integrates with the van structure itself to ensure maximum structural integrity. The horizontally articulated boom uses roller bearings that allow the operator to guide the load easily in and out of the van. A unique rotation control feature utilizes a hand lever that operates a cable controlled multi-position rotation lock. This rotation lock enables the operator to lock the crane in various positions. This key feature adds an additional safeguard for the operator as the load is being loaded and unloaded.

The ESV1000 now offers you a lifting solution for the jobsite with your enclosed service body.  With an extremely small footprint, the crane can stow nicely against the inside wall on either the curb-side or street-side of the service body when not in use.  With the telescopic boom, the ESV1000 can fit in any of the enclosed service bodies without the need for any add-ons or specialty mounting kits.  The 12V DC winch wires directly to the battery and includes a 12 FT pendant controller with up/down functions.  The winch is situated in a fixed housing to the side of the crane.  This will allow the boom to swing with zero winch interference, giving the crane a wide swing radius.
