UK industrial lifting company Simmons Industrial Services 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. Sold and delivered by Kato's European distributor, Rivertek Services, the new crane will replace a Kato CR100 which has been in the Simmons fleet for more than 20 years.
Company owner, Gary Simmons, said: “The quality and versatility of our CR100 is really impressive and we operated the CR100 in our fleet from new for over 20 years. This made our decision to purchase Kato again very easy and we look forward to taking advantage of all the latest features on this new model CR-130Rf.”
Ivan Bolster, operations manager of Rivertek Services, added: “We are delighted to deliver this new Kato to Gary, Ray and the team at Simmons Industrial Services. This model has proven very popular within the industrial plant movement Sector and features like the three tonne searcher hook, enhanced duties of 30 percent over the previous model CR100, increased road speed and reduced tail swing radius are key features which make this a very impressive compact mobile crane.”
Established in 1992 as a crane hire company, Simmons Industrial Services has since tailored its services to cater for mechanical and electrical industrial plant installation, fabrications and strip-outs. Based in Croydon, the company serves London and the south east.
