Self Erecting Tower Cranes in Northampton

Close to our southern depot, we have two Self Erecting Tower Cranes in Northampton on a construction project.

Our two cranes, working side-by-side, are a Potain IGO50 and a Potain HDT80 Self Erecting Tower Crane. Both Pedestrian Operated Tower Cranes are extremely popular on our hire fleet due to the capacity that they offer and the fact that they can, in most cases, with be placed on construction sites with restricted space in a straightforward manner.
