Digital Hands-Free Crane Radio System

Safely keeping in contact with your mobile workforce is the key to a crane operator’s success.

In order to enhance crane to ground communications, SFL has developed a digital hands-free radio application which is installed within the cab of the crane.

The crane radio set-up which employs a Motorola platform and utilises DMR technology offers crystal clear radio transmissions and increased two way radio coverage, whilst reducing interference and background noise.

The crane hands-free radio is available in two forms; a single and double. The double option is for multiple cranes on site where a ‘crash’ emergency radio system is used independently and two separate radios are required.
