UNIC cranes

Waimea Truck and Crane are New Zealand distributors for UNIC cranes, manufactured by the Furukawa Company, a key player in Japan’s metal industry dating back to the 19th century. UNIC has steadily grown from a small mobile crane company to one of Japan’s leading truck-mount crane manufacturers, currently holding a national market share of over 50%. With over 300,000 cranes sold to date, UNIC’s in-house design and manufacturing capability have made the UNIC name a gold standard for high-quality straight-boom cranes in Japan for decades, with exports to more than 70 countries worldwide. UNIC's exacting standards and meticulous management practices are backed by ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications. 

UNIC cranes are renowned for their mobility, rugged reliability and high productivity and Waimea can supply crane-only for you to fit on a truck of your choice, or we can provide a turn-key solution. UNIC cranes have superior lifting performance, a wide operational range, are easy to operate and have unparalleled safety features. These multi-purpose hydraulic cranes are engineered to handle a broad variety of loading operations and are particularly suited for transport operators, construction companies, landscapers, marine operators and those lifting and moving heavy materials like timber, iron and steel.  

UNIC's range of ocean cranes are designed specifically to perform in harsh marine climates. They're highly regarded for their smooth and efficient operation in fishing, fish breeding and other marine operations. 

UNIC cranes have the following features that make them such a popular choice; 

  • High lifting performance - the hoist-winch and long telescopic boom, along with excellent hydraulic components, are behind the performance of UNIC cranes, which function extremely well in lifting heavy cargo. The outrigger span is wide, which makes the crane stable and safe. The 4-point supporting system also contributes to stability during crane operation
  • Wide working range - UNIC straight-booms are portable and compact when in the traveling position, but stretch out long in operation. They are capable of handling not only the cargo on the truck, but also cargo in high places, below ground level, or placed at a distance from the truck 
  • Easy operation - dedicated control levers permit the easy operation, elevation, extension and slewing of the boom, and winch operation. They also control speed, to allow maximum control during operation, even in the most challenging situations. UNIC cranes provide for higher levels of performance than articular type cranes, thanks to the hoist winch and longer telescopic boom 
  • Safe and durable - UNIC cranes are made of high quality Japanese high-tensile steel. Their products are produced under strict quality and production controls and finished products undergo rigid inspections before shipment. UNIC cranes are equipped with several safety devices, which meet the strict environmental conditions and safety regulations in Japan, including JIS and the Industrial Safety and Health Law
