Cranes & Hoists

A Demag CC 3800-1 lattice boom crawler crane proved to be the perfect machine to lift three 72-m-long, 130-tonne spud legs from a barge – a job that not only required a powerful crane, but also the right touch.

Rabiah & Nassar Commercial (Ranco), a subsidiary of the Rabiah & Nassar Group and sole dealer for Chinese Zoomlion’s rough-terrain (RT) cranes and crawler cranes in the country, has invested millions of dollars in expansion to promote and support the brand.

NFT, one of the largest tower crane suppliers in the region and the only dealer for Potain in the Middle East, says luffing tower cranes from the leading Manitowoc brand have become very popular over the past three years.

Within months of launching the world-renowned SWF Krantechnik brand into the Bahrain market, Kanoo Automotive & Industrial Equipment (KAIE) secured its first major order for these cranes with the highly prestigious airport expansion project.

Manitowoc unveiled some class-leading Grove crane models at its recent Crane Days 2018 event, including one that offers the longest reach and highest capacity of any model in its rough-terrain line-up, and a lightweight truck crane that can quickly travel between job sites.

Comansa, a leading manufacturer of tower cranes for construction, has announced the global launch of its new model, 21LC1050, which has been designed for work on projects that demand heavy lifting capacities. The high-capacity flat-top tower crane is available in three versions with a maximum load of 25, 37.
