Fleet Expansion

Preston Hire has expanded its SuperCranes crane offering, which already comprises the largest crawler crane fleet in Australia, with the addition of a Sennebogen 613R Telescopic Crawler Crane.

Purchased from Pace Cranes, the authorised Australian and Pacific distributor for Maeda Mini Crawler Cranes and Sennebogen Cranes which has supplied Preston Hire’s crawler cranes to date, the Sennebogen 613R is making the Preston Hire fleet bigger in more ways than one, according to Preston Hire’s General Manager, David Serg.

“We are constantly looking to increase our product diversity to better meet the needs of our customers, so we have brought the larger Sennebogen 613R – our first Sennebogen purchase - into the mix with our already extensive Maeda, Kato and UNIC crane fleet,” David explained.

“The Sennebogen 613R is an outstanding machine from a renowned crane manufacturer and is a welcome addition that will provide added value and performance for our customers.”

Founded in 1952 to develop and produce machines for the agricultural industry, Sennebogen has firmly established itself as a full service provider and quality leader in crane technology and material handling with products that are characterised by technical innovation.

The Sennebogen 613R is a prime example, featuring as it does a 15t lifting capacity at 2.0m and impressive pick and carry load charts that make it ideal for site projects where loads must be carried to location. A robust telescopic system and telescopic function that can be used even under load on rough terrain and 360° slewing capabilities also ensure that loads can be readily and safely placed in position.

With modern load monitoring systems, the Sennebogen 613R is also able to monitor loads, crane configuration and record data to assist with future major inspection requirements.

“Together with our extensive refurbishment program which ensures all our existing equipment is well maintained for top performance, we are bringing new, larger capacity cranes into the fleet so customers know they can count on us to support them with whatever they need in hire,” David Serg concluded.
