First Spierings for Emerson
Emerson’s new Spierings SK1265-AT6
16. April 2018
UK rental company Emerson Crane Hire has taken delivery of a six axle Spierings SK1265-AT6 Mighty Tiny self-erecting mobile tower crane.
The crane can lift 1,700kg at a radius of 60 metres and to a maximum height of 64.2 metres when the jib is luffed to 30 degrees. It features a maximum capacity of 10 tonnes at a radius of 13.2 metres. It is the first Spierings in the company’s fleet.
Emerson managing director Liam Clancy said: “We are delighted to add the Spierings product to our fleet. We see more and more applications for the mobile tower crane concept in our area. The easy setup, hydraulic motions and steel mats that are delivered as standard with the crane are great.
The simplicity for the operator swayed our decision to invest in this crane. I must admit that it is nice to have a crane in our fleet where we do not need to consider separate ballast or an extra truck for the outrigger mats and with just two lifting charts, it makes planning for lifts a lot easier.”
Spierings commercial director Koos Spierings added: “We are very grateful that we got the chance to show our SK 1265-AT6 at Vertikal Days 2017 to Emerson Crane Hire. Since the late 90’s we have expanded our fleet of cranes in the UK and we are delighted to welcome Emerson as a new Spierings customer. We are sure this will be the start of a long term relationship between two family owned companies.”
Headquartered in Dagenham, southern England, Emerson Crane Hire has been operating for over 25 years and runs a fleet of All Terrain, spider and crawler cranes from brands such as Liebherr, Terex, Tadano, Kato and now Spierings. SOURCE: Vertikal.net
