The Metro Crane is an emission free railway track crane used for maintenance of the underground rail systems.  Currently, IPS Metro is the only company in the United States that has the ability to manufacture this type of crane.


IPS Metro’s engineering team based in Northern Minnesota and Germany designed this one of a kind emission free crane which has the capacity to lift heavy loads while working inside the subway system.  The Metro Crane is a completely green machine with battery backup.


Our IPS Metro crane has many premium features such as its ability to be driven and operated by existing power supply (catenary or 3rdrail), electric and its self-propelled emission free system. This self-propelled crane can travel up to speeds of 80 km / h. This crane also has no counterweight, no set up time and no tail radius to disturb adjacent track when slewing.  The Metro Crane will be manufactured in Duluth, MN.


IPS Metro is currently in the process of becoming certified as a Women-Owned Business.
