Verschoor takes new Spierings

Verschoor Kranen of Sassenheim in The Netherlands has taken delivery of the first Spierings “Mighty Tiny” SK1265-AT6 mobile folding crane. Mounted on a six-axle carrier, the 132 tonne/metre crane comprises a three-tower closed boom and a five-section jib which extends out to a total length of 60 metres where the lift capacity is 1.7 tonnes. Maximum capacity is 10 tonnes at a 13.2 metre radius. At maximum radius the unit’s jib can also be luffed a further 30 degrees, decreasing the radius to 52.2 metres, while increasing the hook height from 60 to 64 metres with a 1.7 tonne load. The whole crane can be set up in just 12 minutes from its folded position.

Verschoor is also expecting delivery of the second SK1265-AT6, which will also be supplied with a brand-new cab, built by Spierings and Belgium-based cab producer Ypcar. Both units are built onto a 12 x 8 x 10 carrier powered by a 390 kW DAF XE390 diesel engine.
