Eastern Crane director Chris Ashworth, said: “The Böcker AK 46/6000 was a no brainer for us as a fast growing company. We needed a replacement for a 23-year-old truck crane and this was the perfect option. With its compact design, long boom length and variable outriggers it is a lightweight alternative to complement our current Liebherr All Terrain fleet. The capabilities of this versatile machine will allow our company to progress and improve the service available to our customers.”
