Self Erecting Crane near Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral

Last week we erected a Self Erecting Crane near Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral for a hire period of approximately four months.

The Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane, a Potain T85A, is the largest Self Erecting Tower Crane on the Mantis Cranes hire fleet with a 45m jib. It can provide a maximum  lifting capacity of 6,000kg at the tower and up to 1,250kg at the end of the jib. The height under hook at at the tower is 33m and 35m at the end of the jib.
