6000MH Railroad & Sign Truck Crane

Make material handling and maintenance work a breeze with Stellar’s powerful 6000MH Articulated Service Crane. Used as part of a sign crane truck or on your high-rail crane truck, the 6000MH Specialty Crane is built for reliable, heavy-duty performance.


Tackle Tough Jobs

The 6000MH is offered with one hydraulic boom tip function or no hydraulic boom tip function. The crane has two 70″ hydraulic extensions with a maximum horizontal reach of 26′ 4″ and a maximum vertical lift of 29′ from the base of the crane, everything you need for maintenance work and installations. The hexagonal boom design delivers strength while greatly reducing boom flex and side-to-side movement.

Rated at 60,000 foot-pounds, the 6000MH Specialty Crane has a truck frame-mounted base. You’ll have the lifting capacity, reach and overall strength you need along with variable-speed control for placement accuracy.

Lifting Capacities:

  • 6,000 lbs @ 10′ (2,720 kg @ 3.05 m)
  • 4,050 lbs @ 14′ 9″ (1,837 kg @ 4.49 m)
  • 2,275 lbs @ 26′ 4″ (1,032 kg @ 8.05 m)

Find a compatible Sign Truck.

Easy To Use

With a state-of-the-art, fully proportional multifunction remote that allows the operator to feather the crane with precision control, the 6000MH makes an ideal sign crane truck or rail crane. The radio remote control is fully proportional and can run multiple functions at once.

Boom attachments on the 6000MH can be switched out for your needs. You can use a standard hook, or utilize the hydraulic boom tip option to run your auger. You may also use a workman basket to lift an installer into place for securing a sign.

Maintenance is simplified, thanks to greaseless bushings and zinc-plated pivot pins. Stellar’s precision construction ensures that the crane and crane body are built to last for years of productive service.
