UK based rental company DM Cranes has taken delivery of its third six axle Spierings SK1265-AT6 self-erecting mobile tower crane.
Based in Goole, Yorkshire - halfway between Hull and Leeds - DM cranes runs a fleet of seven Spierings cranes, including three, four, five, six and seven axle models, and has just added its first Böcker aluminium crane. The company also offers a contract lift service with cranes up to 450 tonnes.
The crane is in fact a used model which has been fully refurbished by the Spierings overhaul division at its production facility in the Netherlands, during which it was equipped with the latest updates in order to bring the crane up to the latest technical specifications.
The SK1265-AT6 has a maximum capacity of 10 tonnes which it can take to a radius of 13.2 metres, while handling 1,700kg at to its maximum jib tip of 60 metres. It can offer a maximum height of 64.2 metres when the jib is luffed to 30 degrees and can be set up within 15 minutes by the operator working alone. Spierings provided DM cranes with a two day training session prior to shipping the crane.
The company is managed by Lorenzo Romagnuolo who took over the business from David Millington in November 2016 and was joined last year by Craig Dickey. In the past year or two the company has expanded its Spierings fleet and sends them all over the country in order to serve its key customers.
