low ground pressure low weight crane / Man basket

comparable with a spider crane and day rate may be higher than a tracked MEWP that can go to 26m, but you don't need an artic to deliver and the weight is significantly less. 

tracked mewp will be similar to a conventional so your looking at 3.5t on ours versus 18t ish on a conventional, so a higher day rate will be offset by transport costs and ground prep (if needed)

 

So 8 hrs on site what does it cost

That’s why I asked for 8 hrs on site,these cranes are over £120000 to buy this must reflect in the rate they are twice as expensive as a tracked mewp but give more outreach and height but will come with a operator so I was interested in the costs against a mewp or mobile crane

we work anywhere in Scotland and have been on site works as a man basket down in Aberdeenshire and as a crane on the west coast. Crane lives in Caithness or Inverness shire so we can go anywhere. especially if its up small roads or hard to reach places. that's where we score over conventional equipment
