Yorkshire crane rental company Highcliffe Engineering has taken delivery of its first new All Terrain crane – a 40 tonne ATF 40G-2.
The compact two axle crane features a 35.2 metre main boom plus a nine metre swingaway which can be offset by zero, 20 and 40 degrees.
Highcliffe manager Lee Wolstenholme, said: “In my opinion The 40G is currently the UK’s most popular two axle mobile crane. It has extremely good duties, but more importantly is extremely strong and reliable. If it’s good enough for Dewsbury and Proud, Davies and Marsh Plant it’s good enough for us and we look forward to doing more business with Tadano UK.”
Based in Mexborough, South Yorkshire, the company was established in 1983 by Ian Wolstenholme as a steel fabrication company and gradually evolved into a mobile crane hire company after buying its first cranes in 2000. It now runs a fleet of mobile cranes ranging from 15 to 50 tonnes, most of them being truck or All Terrain cranes in the 25 to 50 tonne bracket.
