Providing solutions to the most challenging problems, we have our own invention of the mini crawler crane – the ‘Compact Crawler’ Crane. An outdoor and indoor crane suitable for the tightest of spaces, the most unsuitable ground conditions, completing work that can be done by no other crane.

Our Compact Crawler Crane benefits include:

  • Versatile & compact
  • Fly Jib for additional height/reach of up to 26m
  • Lifting capacities up to 13t
  • Pick and carry up to 6t
  • Low ground bearing pressures
  • Ideal for internal operations
  • Fully remote-controlled for safety
  • Attachable grab/bucket for material handling

The ultimate all-terrain crane hire

Whether you’re looking to tackle a muddy field or a rough and rocky terrain, the crawler crane has you covered. Able to take on fields and weaker ground where regular heavy cranes would otherwise sink, it is truly an all-terrain crane.

Despite their size and weight, crawler cranes are designed to be mobile. The crawler tracks allow them to move over a variety of surfaces which makes them adaptable to different job sites.

Compact Crawler Crane technical specifications

A lifting solution like no other

Following the success of our Maeda LC785 and Kobelco CK90UR ‘lift and carry’ Compact Crawler Cranes, considerable research and engineering development was undertaken to produce a new concept, and the Cadman Cranes ACC2050 ‘Thunderbird’ Compact Crawler Cranes were born.

Steel reinforced 500mm rubber track pads provide an overall machine width of 2.5 metres and a length of 5 metres. Operating on two optional outrigger centres and ‘free on tracks’, these unique crawler cranes offer incredible lifting performances including lift and carry duties up to 6-tonnes.

Fully remote-controlled telescoping main booms and hydraulically luffing fly jibs through 160 degrees provide lifting capacities of 2170kgs to a maximum working radius of 16.20 metres and 650kgs to 26.00 metres respectively. Optional equipment includes two-fall hoist ropes and fully rotating grab buckets easily fitted to main booms with quick release couplings – perfect for removing material from hard-to-reach areas.

These mini crawler cranes are in a class of their own, there is nothing quite like them in the UK. Click on the crane you require above for its full technical specifications or contact us directly to discuss how we can help.

Keeping the water system flowing through Leigh-On-Sea

Below the allotments in Manchester Drive, Leigh on Sea, lies a 14m diameter, 14m deep storm water wet well collecting much of the surface water from the area before pumping it towards the Thames.

The engineering solution was simple enough – two of our Compact Crawler Cranes or ‘Thunderbirds’. One for access and material handling and the other as a standby in case of breakdown or emergency rescue.

Carrying a 6t transformer over 1-mile across a field

Working for one of the leading global renewable energy specialists at a Solar Farm in Norfolk, we used our innovative Compact Crawler Crane, the ‘Thunderbird’, to overcome a challenge that no other crane company could solve.
