Mounted on a 26 tonne MAN chassis with a rear steering axle, features include wireless remote controls with colour screen, automatic levelling, and fully variable outrigger set up and monitoring. The crane was also supplied with Böcker’s PK 250-D work platform which provides a working height of 30.5 metres with a 250kg platform capacity.

Managing director Tim Proud said: “This is our first Bocker and I’m impressed with the quality of finish and integrated safety features. After our initial induction we sent the machine out on hire and it has not stopped since. It is quick and efficient, adaptable and easy to use. We are looking forward to our second Böcker arriving in July.”
