UK rental company Crane Hire Solutions has taken delivery of a 13 tonne Kato CR-130Rf city type All Terrain crane.
The CR-130Rf features a 24 metre, six section boom with a two stage, 3.6 to 5.5 metre hydraulic luffing jib. The new crane was sold and delivered by Kato's European distributor Rivertek Services, and is the second Kato the company has purchased in the last year.
Managing director Keith Morgan said: “We are delighted with both Kato cranes that have been supplied by Rivertek Services and this second Kato will be a great addition to our fleet. Rivertek provide us with a high level of customer support and this is important to us. This new Kato city crane will replace a Tadano TS75 and features like the small physical size along with crab and rear steering is invaluable in a crane of this size that we have had in our fleet.”
Rivertek Services operations manager Ivan Bolster added: “We are delighted to supply Crane Hire Solutions with another Kato city crane as they have always been a pleasure to work with. It continues a strong demand for the Kato city cranes and we hope to be able to supply more to the European market with the recently release of the new Rf series.”
Based in Ashby De La Zouch, Leicestershire, Crane Hire Solutions runs a fleet of cranes up to 200 tonnes, including All Terrain and spider cranes.
