As we welcome another brand new machine to our fleet, we thought we’d let you know exactly just what this crane is capable of picking up.

We’ve roughly calculated the weights of these well known icons (with some help from Google!) and calculated how many of those items our newest crane is capable of lifting at its strongest outreach of  2.9 metres. It’s amazing to think that it could pick up a small army of Buckingham palace guards!

Recent items that we've moved

We’ve moved several things recently of interest including the mechanical workings of a well-known global pasta manufacturer from its refit in the UK to Italy. We’ve even moved a plane, boat transportation equipment and a stationary laboratory (size of stationary caravan) being refitted for its scientific discovery in the arctic circle.

The new HIAB lorry specs – for the industry geeks among us!

·      10 tonne front axle for peak weight distribution (first in UK)

·      Wheelbase of 3.9 metres which is still surprisingly manoeuvrable

·      Maximum outreach of 21.15 metres, lifting 2,600kg.

·      The crane can lift 22,000kg, at an outreach of 2.9metres,

·       This bespoke vehicle was engineered based on over 20 years of customer experience.

 

*Did you know?: The acronym HIAB stands for Hydrauliska Industri AB which is a Finnish term meaning crane manufacturer.
