Self Erecting Crane at Maynooth University

At the beginning of August we placed a Self Erecting Crane at Maynooth University for an initial hire period of three months.

The Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane is a Mantis 35.10, manufactured at our plant in Co, Donegal. It can provide a maximum capacity lift of 1,000kg to 34m. This, by far, the most popular crane on our hire fleet in Ireland.

Our client is using the Mantis 35.10 on a restoration project at St Mary’s House on the Maynooth University campus.

    When restoring historic buildings, care must be taken to preserve these buildings for future generations. Cranes play a crucial role in this process and provide the necessary means of material handling, access, precision, and safety required to carry out restorations without causing additional damage. Over the years, Mantis Cranes have been involved in a number of iconic projects in some recognisable places that involved considerable planning not just to put the crane in place but also for the daily management of materials handling.
