Hird experienced strong interest in a variety of mini cranes and in its 3B6 load monitoring systems at Vertikal Days.
The positive response from visitors at the lifting and access trade event at Haydock Park on Merseyside on 14 and 15 of May mirrors growing confidence in a recovering UK economy, says the company.
Hird is the UK and Ireland authorised distributor for 3B6 load monitoring systems and Valla mini cranes – and took the opportunity to showcase 3B6’s advantages, in terms of improved safety, security and improved productivity.
3B6 load monitoring systems are fitted as standard to all new Valla mini cranes and by many original equipment manufacturers, including TEREX, Manitou, CVS Ferrari.
They can be retro-fitted to a wide range of other machines, including powered access equipment, mobile cranes, tower cranes, knuckle boom cranes, glazing robots, material handlers such as excavators, forklifts, reach stackers, pick and carry cranes, dump trucks and wheel loaders.
3B6 load devices are available in analogue or CAN BUS systems.
Hird’s 3B6 stand was visited by a number of existing 3B6 and Valla mini cranes customers, and received many new enquires. Visitors were impressed by the range of systems and spares available from 3B6.
Carl Cooper said:
Clients are seeing the real advantages, both financially and in worksite efficiency, of using 3B6 load systems to monitor and optimise their lifting and materials handling operations remotely and in real time.
“We showed a new Manitex Valla promotional video which demonstrated the breadth and strength of the company’s range. Interest in mini crane hire and mini crane sales options was much stronger than at the event in recent years.
“It was less about people looking and more about people actively wanting to discuss how they can make best use of our machines in the coming 12 months.
“That’s a very positive sign. Interest in Valla mini cranes was particularly strong across the range of machines available. We have a number of good enquiries to follow up on.
“What also impressed visitors to our stand most was the level service we offer to 3B6 customers and to both mini cane hire and mini crane sales customers.
“Our after-sales service means customers get the best use of their machines through technical support, mobile servicing and repairs and access to our mini crane operator training.”
