The Lenny III crane arm is our largest fixed arm crane at Chapman UK. Ideal for big exterior crane shots (including live broadcast), studio use & Steadicam platforms. Even tracking shots are possible when the Lenny III is mounted on the Chapman Maverick Vehicle complete with a self-leveling centre post (see photo).
The Lenny III design is incredibly strong, able to carry very heavy loads very safely (550lb ride on weight) to 35 feet or a maximum reach of 50 feet with a Remote Camera Head. This arm will carry up to three seated operators and a camera, a walk on/off multi-purpose platform (with a hinged ramp and hand rails) or any of todays camera rigs, Film, 3D or Digital.
The Lenny III takes much of the excellent modular design of the Lenny II but with more emphasis on greater height and reach. The arm design features the aerodynamic holes in each crane section, reducing wind drag when panning the arm. The Lenny III improves on the previous cranes design by introducing a leveling control rod and spring loaded dampers, these reduce inertia when the arm is raised or lowered, taking the strain away from the operator, making the movement very smooth and the crane a safe choice for shots involving height.
The Lenny III is the most popular big arm crane of it's kind thanks to it's incredible strength, ease of operation and transportability.
