The BT30RT will be among the first to be delivered in Europe

Hire Safe Solution’s managing director, Gerard Jennings, said: “In 2018 we took delivery of the first 22 metre diesel unit in the UK, it has worked brilliantly for us, when we were introduced to these new products the decision was straightforward. 2021 will see the next chapter of growth for Hire Safe Solutions, our capital expenditure is set at slightly over £10 million for the year. We have also taken tentative steps towards a business purchase and actively looking for a company that will provide synergy with our own in terms of location, staff and equipment.”

Hire Safe Solutions operates from two locations in Leamington Spa and Newton-le-Willows near Haydock. The company runs a fleet of almost 500 units according to the latest Cranes & Access Top 30 rental companies report:


From the pictures it looks like the counterweight/tailswing is only a foot or two above the ground, and curls around the tires with not too much clearance.

I could see a crushing incident happening very easily.

BT30RT has been a fantastic machine. Smooth functions, ergonomics, stable ride at full height, no need for extendable axles. We have a young engineer with no biases to any brand. Convinced the BT model is the better functioning machine. Once people get over the appearance and understand the benefits of the design, it should be a winner for Dingli.
