The HEXATRON from ARRI Rental is an exclusive, all-weather, go-anywhere crane positioning base. Suitable for use with telescopic and modular camera cranes, the heavy-duty, four-wheel drive vehicle allows elaborate crane shots to be achieved quickly and easily on the toughest terrain and at the most inaccessible locations.
Once in position, the vehicle base stabilizes itself with four hydraulic legs, which provide solid support. Then the custom-made six-arm HEXApod fixed to the vehicle base levels the crane mount itself. Other system components include the HEXAjuice power supply, HEXAbrake remote-controlled pan brake and dedicated road haulage truck.
