Hird is continuing to provide a full range of compact cranes for hire to its Yorkshire customers along with those throughout the UK. The Hull based compact crane specialists stocks a range of pick and carry cranes from leading manufacturer Valla, and its range of static spider cranes comes from UNIC.
Compact cranes are mainly used for lifting and moving loads where space and access is restricted – this is due to their compact dimensions, ease of maneuverability and precise operation.
Yorkshire businesses are increasingly using compact cranes across a number of industries, including steel erection, machinery moving, construction, plant maintenance, maritime, aerospace and particularly glass handling and installation.
Hird offers machines to suit all environments. Diesel compact cranes are ideal for outdoor use, electric compact cranes for indoor use and LPG compact cranes can be used both indoors and outdoors, therefore offering the ultimate in versatility.
Even though the Hird range of cranes is referred to as a range of ‘compact cranes’, the largest crane in the fleet – the Valla 250E – can lift a very respectable 25,000kg (25 tons) in weight.
Compact cranes are increasingly being used in conjunction with vacuum glass lifters – models include the MT2, P11104, MRT4, MRTA6, Kombi 7211-DS2, DSZ2, Hydraulica, Hydraulica 1200, MR611 and the DSL2.
The full range of compact cranes is available for hire throughout the UK, from the Hird Southern Depot, covering London and the south, the Hird Central Depot in Doncaster covering the Midlands, and the Hird Northern depot and head office in Hull, covering the North of the country.
