The UK’s leading lifting solutions company, Ainscough Crane Hire, has added a brace of new mobile tower cranes to its nationwide fleet: a Liebherr MK 140 and a Spierings AT6.
The six-axle Spierings model is the largest mobile tower crane in the world. It is the only unit with a fifth extendible jib section which, combined with the four other jib sections, delivers an unrivalled radius of 60 metres.
The Liebherr MK140, meanwhile, is prized for its ease of assembly and ability to operate in tight spaces; making it ideally suited for urban lifts.
Operations Director of the Heavy Cranes Division, Andrew Winter, said:
“Both cranes are popular with customers and the operators who use them, the applications are very diverse, we are pleased to add more capacity to already the best-maintained and diverse crane fleet in the country.”
“It was therefore the right time to make new investments in the fleet and add to what is the only true national crane fleet in the country, the new mobile towers are available for hire now.”
