Maeda and UNIC Cranes
Preston Hire’s fleet of mini cranes for hire features the superior Maeda and UNIC cranes, small in stature but big when it comes to performance. Their compact strength and quality will surprise you. Some of the features of our mini cranes include:
Impressive lifting capacities that range from 1.7t all the way up to 6t.
They are comparatively tiny, with widths ranging from a petite 590mm to a still tiny 1600mm.
Increased accessibility—now you can get compact heavy lifters into smaller areas that would be inaccessible to standard cranes.
Our range of mini cranes for hire are suitable for a wide range of uses, from basic lifting to highly specialist applications.
