Our 80ft Akela Crane is one of the longest arms in the BFE/Mumbai area.
Our Akela can be constructed to arm lengths of 45ft, 58ft, 72ft and 80ft reach,
and some custom sizes in between. The lens height depends on the camera
and remote head configuration, but can be just under 60ft with the 80ft arm,
meaning you can move from almost 6 stories high to ground level (or below)
in a single fluid movement. The strength of the Akela is in the cables mounted
over the top and along the sides the arm. The nose load of the arm at 80ft is 130 lbs.
(Camera system weight plus Remote Head)
There are many options of remote heads and focus systems available from other vendors,
depending on the needs of your shoot. We do have a lightweight Triangle Jimmy Jib remote
head including joystick or pan and tilt wheels that can be fitted to the Akela on film or video style
shoots as an included in rental.
