UK tower crane rental company and Jaso dealer Falcon Tower Crane Services has ordered a 64 tonne Jaso J780PA.64 luffing jib tower crane, the first to be delivered in Europe.
The crane features a 70 metre jib, with a jib tip capacity of 6.2 tonnes. It is the third J780PA.64 ever produced, with both previous models going to Australia. The tower crane will be delivered in October for a project in Birmingham, and will be the company’s largest crane.
Jaso sales manager Mikel Iturrioz said: “We are delighted to announce that our UK dealer for more than 20 years has confirmed the order for our largest luffing jib tower crane. With global demand for the bigger lifters increasing, we are sure this will be the first of many in the UK market.”
Falcon's national sales director Ian Gray added: “Falcon has always been known for being able to offer its clients a complete range of tower cranes from self erecting models to large saddle and luffing machines. The Jaso J780PA.64 emphasises that this commitment extends to the largest modern cranes which are becoming more and more popular as different construction methods evolve.”
Established in 1975, Falcon is based in Shipdham, Norfolk, and runs a fleet of more than 410 tower cranes.
