MPW crab

MPW multi-purpose winch crabs are used in crane installations in a wide variety of industries.

Flexibility and possible combinations of individual sub-assemblies of various types cover a variable range to avoid interfaces.


  • Crab frame of welded steel construction
  • Optimum weight and torsionally rigid
  • Travel wheels largely wear-free
  • Robust, proven corner-bearing design

Fully equipped, assembled, delivered just-in-time - the modular design enables crabs to be shipped in a container

All motors and components are individually checked for functionality. This means that you receive a MPW open winch crab assembled using series principles:

  • Same travel unit design as the crane end carriage
  • Bolted crossbeam connection
  • Minimum assembly requirement
  • Few connection interfaces - drum, gearbox, motor and brake form a unit
  • Crab frame built in a jig
  • Modular design
