MovieBird 52

(51,5 feet = 15,7m)

The MB52 is an extended version of MB45 mostly suitable for TV studio as this crane maximum load is up to 40kg. MB52 has the same dolly ‘footprint’ as the smaller MB30 crane. Owing to the cranes small weight and size when disassembled it can be transported in a standard 16 ton truck or a bespoke trailer.

The manufacturer recomends the following safety procedures: in order to reduce the possibility of an accident, every camera crane with arm range above 30 feet (9 meters) should be operated by at least two trained technicians (grips).
In case of MovieBird cranes it concerns models: MB-30, MB-35, MB-45, MB-50XL, MB-52, MB-62.
