GF-8 Xten

The GF-8 CRANE SYSTEM is an industry standard in modular rideable and remote cranes. It‘s versatile, durable and provides unmatched ease of movement and steady crane moves. The simple rigging assembly and fast set up make the GF-8 extremely popular. By adding the Xten Kit, the standard GF-8 crane can be extended to a GF-8 Xten Crane providing extra height and lift range.

MORE FEATURES

4 x 2 track wheels are available in a special Vulkulan mix which are ideal for fast tracking shots but also provide extremely smooth movement for man riding or remote use. The mounted track wheels don't restrict the wheels when steering. If the ground surface demands it, the track wheels can be removed or added within seconds. Optionally 4 x 4 track wheels are also available in either Vulkulan or Plastic.
Sturdy, hand cranked levelling legs can be attached to each of the base dollies allowing for fast adjustments on uneven surfaces. The position of the levelling jacks increases the footprint of the base. A special adapter 
enables connection of the track wheels to run on 100 cm /39' track rather than the standard 62 cm /24,5'.
The bases are equipped with fittings for a push bar at either end of the dolly. The telescopic push bar is especially useful for fast tracking shots allowing 2 operators comfortable positioning on either side of the base.
The GF-8 crane platform can be mounted to all the base dollies transforming them into Track or Western dollies.
