Moviebird 50 XL (50 feet=15,2 m)

Despite the similar reach to the MB52 it’s a totally different crane. The MB50 was designed from the start to handle very heavy head packages (maximum nose load is 80 kg). It’s much stiffer than the MB52 and MB45. Despite it’s reach of 50ft it’s still a very compact crane when retracted, easy to transport and move around on the film set. Short back end of only 2,6 m makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces and allows high tilt angle of up to 53 degrees. There’s also a pair of telescopic rails that extend the back end for additional 1m for more leverage and easier arm control.
