Ainscough Crane Hire, the UK’s leading lifting solutions company, has further invested in its fleet with the addition of an additional Liebherr MK140 crane.

The flexible and adaptable mobile tower crane is perfect for use on city-centre projects, refineries and chemical plants, roof refurbishment, installation of solar panels, prefabricated component and house construction, maintenance and repair work, bridge and road building.

40 members of the Ainscough team took part in an extensive training session at hosted by Liebherr Biggleswade last week, the sales team, our contact lift managers and technical team all gained some insight into the product. They were shown important information about the model’s technical design, helping them to look for new applications on projects throughout the country.

A new learning for us of the model is its lower carbon footprint due to a hybrid capability when on site. This allows operators to avoid contributing to noise pollution in busy urban areas, whilst ensuring greater energy efficiency in terms of fuel output.

Andrew Spink, operations director – Heavy Cranes, Ainscough Crane Hire, said: “Here at Ainscough, we pride ourselves on training our people and this latest Liebherr MK140 also shows our commitment to continually investing in the best products on behalf of our customers.

“Using the important training they have received at Liebherr Biggleswade, the Ainscough team can now apply their knowledge on the new addition to further support our customers across the country.”

Richard Everist, managing director of Liebherr added: “Thanks to its innovative design and versatility the MK140 is proving to be a very popular crane within the industry. It is a perfect fit for the Ainscough fleet, and together with the experience and knowledge of the Ainscough team it will be a successful new addition.”
