HEXATRON

The complete off-road crane positioning base.

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.

HEXATRON features

  • Compatible with all telescopic (15-75’) and modular crane systems.
  • Quick and easy to operate at many different locations on a single day.
  • Strong climbing ability for year-round use on mountainous and hard-to-reach terrain.
  • Various steering modes and wheel configurations to suit different conditions.
  • Precise leveling of the crane achieved in minutes.
  • Can be safely driven off the set immediately after use with the crane still mounted, causing no delay to shooting.
  • The water wading depth of 60 cm and all-terrain tires eliminate logistical problems associated with harsh weather and sodden locations.
