What you need to know
The crane market is an extensive range that can create uncertainty in your worksite when accidentally choose the wrong one. Understanding the specifications of your worksite is a significant requirement needed in order to proceed, as each crane has been designed for an array of fixed and different tasks.
For this reason, allow us to share the different crane ranges we have available and how to actually choose the perfect unit or fleet for your next project:
Cranes are a common type of heavy machinery used for worksites for the purpose of lifting and transporting supplies, materials, platforms, or people for efficient working and productivity onsite. At Preston Hire, our range includes a vast selection of mini & small spider cranes and hydraulic crawler cranes. Being thoughtfully selected to deliver always, these machines are great for a range of different applications. Allow us to share:
Mini & Small Spider Cranes:
Our mini and small cranes have been thoughtfully selected to deliver sites a compact lightweight body for smaller applications and requirements, as opposed to larger cranes that need to be built onsite. With powerful lifting capabilities, outriggers, and tipping prevention systems to stabilize these units, the machines can effortlessly become your go-to partner.
From construction work to mining development, the application of mini and small cranes is ultimately limitless. Being small machines, these units are great for reaching restricted access, such as residential, rooftop, and marine construction. Depending on your materials, mini and small cranes are great for medium-sized projects or limited access, as they can lift an enormous amount for their size while reaching areas not possible with larger machines. The telescopic feature adds an additional bonus.
We have a great number of mini and small cranes available, allow us to share:

Hydraulic Crawler Cranes:
Compared to Mini cranes, our hydraulic crawler cranes are considered our larger range of units that still boast a pretty compact footprint. These hydraulic crawler cranes are machines that are powered using liquid pressure, for the purpose of lifting and moving heavy loads, with an additional feature of moving whilst carrying these loads.
Designed with tracks, these cranes are great for larger compact areas, such as construction sites, industrial premises, or in particular inner-city work. Our range of cranes provides a lifting capacity from a small but hefty load of 995kg at just 1.3m, all the way up to an impressive 8t at 2.4m.
