It is easy to be impressed and dazzled by larger cranes as they show off their sheer strength and size on construction sites across the country. Yet there is a small, hardworking and highly versatile class of cranes who have been quietly winning the hearts and minds of those who use them. Mini cranes are the chameleon of the crane industry having the ability to quickly adapt to scenarios and environments that larger cranes cannot. Preston Rentals is proud to provide Crane Hire of these ‘Mini yet Mighty’ units, providing customers with time and money savings.
Over the past 20 years, the emergence of modular construction techniques created the need for larger crane models. Larger cranes offer a number of benefits to users as they can lift bigger & fewer pieces shortening the construction timeline and improving quality. Ironically, this shift towards larger cranes making fewer lifts has created tight crane access for detail & finish work. The new normal is for subcontractors to have to go back inside a structure to install materials such as drywall, glass, ornamental steel, staircases and fixtures such as stoves, boilers, fireplaces or IT servers. This is where Mini Cranes shine, providing numerous applications and solutions for these complex tasks.
The Preston Rentals line-up of SuperCranes includes a fleet of mini cranes delivering numerous time and money efficiencies to those who recognize their incredible uses.
Allow us to share 4 reasons why mini crane hire with Preston Rentals is the solution your site has been searching for:
1. SURPRISINGLY MINIMAL CRANE WORK AREA.
The standout quality of Mini Cranes is their ability to work in small, confined spaces. Our fleet of mini cranes available for rent, have been put to work on both US coasts inside manufacturing facilities, airports, on golf courses, in shopping malls, residential construction sites, tree removal, playgrounds, highway construction, substations, refineries, traditional steel erection and hvac installations. The list of applications is endless, however the ability to save money from utilising these machines is universal. Preston Rentals recently worked with a customer whose site was a building surrounded on three sides by power lines and the fourth side was a 10’ wide alley preventing a safe and simple lift if using a 120 ton truck crane. Utilizing one of our 706 SuperCranes, a premium UNIC model, the team executed the residential HVAC job at a fraction of the cost and time. Rather than closing the entire street and needing to take appropriate measures to de-energize power lines in the area, the Preston Rentals SuperCrane 706 went over the curb, onto the front landing and made the lifts without any power line hazards. This is an excellent example of maximizing the performance of these mini cranes resulting in time and investment savings.
2. FLEXIBLE AND VERSATILE OPTIONS.
Mini Cranes have the unique ability to adapt to their environment quickly and efficiently. Flexible power options including zero-emission electric, propane, gasoline or diesel are all available pending the requirements of your project. Zero-emission options are particularly important for indoor environments or where the customers is handling fresh food produce for example.
