UK rental company Roadcraft Crane Hire has taken delivery of an 80 tonne Terex RT1080L Rough Terrain crane from UK distributor Crowland Cranes.
The RT1080L features a 42.1 metre five-section main boom plus an eight to 14-metre swing-away extension, offset-table by 20 degrees, which provides a maximum tip height of 59 metres. The new crane will be based at Cammell Laird’s shipbuilding facility in Birkenhead, Merseyside.
Andy Cahill, Crowland Cranes sales manager, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Roadcraft for their latest crane purchase. The rough terrain concept proves an ideal solution for clients operating on long term projects.”
