Wide range of Construction Equipment

Any construction project demands that you have the right equipment for the right job. With different kinds of heavy equipment ranging from lifts or cranes to loaders, you want to make sure that your construction equipment can handle your tasks. There are things you need to look at before you choose particular heavy equipment for your project. Consider the project’s size and scope. Many construction jobs use heavy-duty transportation vehicles such as construction cranes. The equipment may range from bucket trucks to boom crane trucks designed for larger-scale projects. The bigger equipment is suitable for big jobs and they can work in uneven or rough terrains.

 Also, make sure that there is the availability of parts for your construction equipment. Since this equipment forms an integral part of the project, you should make sure that you can access all the elements needed to keep them working efficiently. Choose equipment that has parts available when you run into problems. You also want to ensure you have the right specialists who can fix the parts to ensure the project doesn’t experience downtimes or delays. Often, projects have delays and increased costs when your equipment cannot perform efficiently or you cannot get reliable parts when there is a breakdown of the existing one. 

At Preston Hire, we offer heavy construction equipment that is properly maintained and serviced for an excellent performance. Our operators are also highly trained to ensure that they efficiently and safely run the machines. 

We feature an extensive fleet of heavy construction equipment to make it easier for you to find the right one. With a fleet that comprises mobile, mini, and hydraulic cranes, we ensure that you get the equipment you need for your job. Our Maeda mini cranes are available for a restrictive work environment. If you are working on a site where there is a restriction in terms of accessibility and movement of heavy equipment, you want to go with compact designs of these machines that can easily manoeuvre the spaces. The smaller units are not only designed to access smaller spaces but also offer versatility. These are some of the flexible and reliable cranes in the industry. 

Mini cranes are made to do precision work – they have precision control when working on more delicate jobs such as glazing. They also use different kinds of attachments like vacuum lifts and glass manipulators. Depending on the kind of work you are hiring a mini crane for, you can have different attachments. You can easily manoeuvre mini cranes around existing structures such as close buildings and utility poles. If you are looking for a solution to complex construction challenges, then our mini cranes come in handy for limited space and weight restrictions. 

Manoeuvring mini cranes is pretty efficient and consumes less time, and you know time is money. You can improve your construction periods or timelines by using these cranes. Mini cranes are also easier to transport and set up compared to larger cranes. 

Use our Maeda mini cranes for the following kinds of work;

  • Installing outer walls like glass frames – mini cranes can be moved to upper floors within high rise buildings for installation works.
  • In spaces with obstacles or confined areas, you can use spider cranes for safety reasons. For instance, the working range restriction feature can allow an operator to avoid contact with things like power lines. 
  • Lightweight mini cranes can help lift materials on rooftops from the ground. So, you won’t block roads with bigger cranes. Mini cranes can carry out the work that is done by tower cranes. And they can be lifted easily to rooftops by elevators and tower cranes. 
  • Can use mini cranes for civil construction like train stations, airports, dam construction sites, and others. They are used to lift loads of materials. 
  • Where overhead cranes aren’t available or cannot be used due to space restrictions, mini cranes can work better. For instance in the maintenance of equipment within chemical plants and factories or inline replacement such as automotive manufacturers. 

At Preston Hire, we also feature larger cranes for robust work. Our collection of large cranes come from top manufacturers including Kato, Sennebogen, and Liebherr. 

In addition to crane hire, we also offer other services like installing super deck loading platforms. If your construction requires the use of Super Decks, we can install them. We work together with the engineering partners to ensure that we include any special requirements for your super deck platforms. If operator training is needed, we will organise one to ensure that the operators can operate the machine safely.
