UK’s first JMG MC 250.09 FL

UK rental company County Lifting has taken delivery of the first 25 tonne JMG MC 250.09 FL all electric Fork truck/pick & carry crane to arrive in the country.

The MC 250.09 FL can be equipped with either 2.49 metre long forks and/or a four section telescopic boom mounted horizontally on the top of a three section vertical box section mast. The boom sits on the forklift mast carriage between the forks. It provides a hook height of up to 7.5 metres and a maximum reach beyond the front of the machine of 3.5 metres at which point it can handle eight tonnes at full height with the mast vertical.

Tilting the mast forward extends the horizontal reach to five metres, with a capacity of 5.6 tonnes, although the lift height is reduced to just over seven metres. County Lifting’s machine has been equipped with a quick change battery pack by JMG in order to allow continuous operation.

Daniel Drury of County Lifting said: “So far, we can’t help but be impressed by the capability of this model. It went straight to work on its first major project, equipped with the Forks, teaming up with our 35 tonne JMG MC350. The MC250 was tasked with removing a production line with component weights of up to 23.5 tonnes and handled it perfectly.
