Preston Hire’s SuperCrane fleet features state-of-the-art models selected to create minimum impact on a work environment while offering maximum impact in terms of lifting capacities. With a strong focus on mini crawler and spider cranes, Preston Hire continues to expand its fleet meeting market demand.
Sean Reid, Preston Hire’s General Manager, speaks passionately about the benefits so many businesses can enjoy thanks to the impressive capabilities of these mighty machines.
“As a hire company, we recognised in our early years of operation the opportunity to expand our focus from our core product, our SuperDeck retractable loading platform system, to also provide our customers with a range of quality spider cranes for hire with our trusted, kiwi service! Our fleet offers industry-leading machines that provide superior lifting capabilities in compact work environments and with a variety of power options.”
“Our crane capabilities allow us to service a range of markets including the commercial and residential high-rise construction sectors helping with steel installation, plant construction & maintenance, façade work, general construction and anywhere that crane access is a challenge. Add to the mix Spider Cranes are super lightweight making them ideal for when a crane is required on a suspended slab whilst also having impressive lifting capacities. It is clear to see why our fleet is a game-changer in this category.”
As a leader in mini crane and spider crane applications, Preston Hire’s philosophy is to offer the most current technology from Best-In-Class manufacturers.
“The more time you spend with our spider cranes, the more surprises they deliver. These machines seriously pack-a-punch and deliver some incredible features that provide ideal solutions for many site challenges,” Reid explains. “We work closely with UNIC and Maeda, both world class manufacturers in spider crane design and engineering.”
Key spider crane features that Preston Hire can provide include:
Impressive lifting capacities that range from 1.7t all the way up to 6t.
Compact and nimble being comparatively tiny to larger cranes with widths ranging from a petite 590mm to 1600mm.
Increased accessibility—now you can get compact heavy lifters into smaller areas that would be inaccessible to standard cranes.
Flexibility of use from basic lifting to highly specialist applications.
Preston Hire prides itself in being a versatile solutions provider. The hire experience at Preston Hire includes value-added support options such as lift planning, orientations and project-specific surveys & consultations.
“We have a team of professionals with a wealth of experience from every aspect of the crane industry from 1 ton to 2,500. Whether it’s indoors, on the water or elevated surface, our team’s experience sets us apart,” says Reid.
Preston Hire operates branches across both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. This network of branches allows the team to service the country and transport equipment as needed by customers.
“I’ve seen first hand the benefits our Spider Cranes deliver and am extremely confident in our fleet. We have in place the right levels of range, capabilities, servicing, transport and safety to make a difference to construction sites in NZ,” said Reid. “We work hard, listen, learn and are committed to getting the job done for our customers. We say our customers can count on us and we mean it!”
