Hire Maeda mini cranes from Hird and you know you are combining the power and capability of the world’s most popular spider crane with the expertise of the UK’s leading lifting experts.
As companies look for more flexible and cost-effective ways to carry out lifting safely across many sectors, Maeda mini cranes are increasingly coming into their own.
Across UK industry, lifting challenges are changing. For example, the rise of renewable energy has resulted in the construction of thousands of anaerobic digestion units, often on remote farms.
Hird’s Maeda mini cranes are being used to construct and maintain these plants – as they can be tracked into position and carry out a wide range of lifting duties in confined and challenging spaces.
Maeda mini cranes – flexible and safe lifting
Maeda mini cranes provider more options for selecting the right lifting solution. Where, once a mobile crane might be hired to carry out lifts, there are now options to use smaller and more agile spider cranes.
This allows lifts to be carried out more cost-effectively in smaller working envelopes, reducing disruption and allowing more lifts to be carried out in a shorter time period.
Also, regulation, new technology, a desire to set the highest safety standards and a drive to increase lifting productivity is causing manual handling to be squeezed out of many lifting processes.
For instance, glass and façade installers hire Maeda mini cranes from Hird in combination with advanced glass vacuum lifters to install ever larger panels of glass and other materials.
