Mini Crane Hire
AGD Rental were the first crawler crane hire company in the UK to have an all hydraulic fleet and have been offering fully hydraulic crawler cranes for rent for 30 years.
We were pioneers in offering mini crawler cranes for hire in the UK. We started back in 1996 when we acquired our first IHI CCH50T, 5 tons capacity mini crawler crane.
Later we were the first to add zero tail swing radius model IHI CCH30T mini cranes to our rental fleet, which in year 2000 increased to a total of 50 units of mini crawler cranes!
Now our fleet includes other zero swing radius models including the Maeda LC755 and Hitachi EX75URT-5 5 tons mini cranes both with an incredible boom length of over 15 m.
Other popular machines include the 8 tons capacity Hitachi Zaxis 160LCT mini crawler crane, and its bigger brothers the 9 tons Hitachi Zaxis 180LCT mini crane and the 10 tons Hitachi Zaxis 210LCT mini crane with 21 m boom!
Some machines are fitted with rubber tracks and virtual wall systems for safer use beside roads and railways or inside buildings.
All may be dismantled to facilitate access to basements or to be lifted onto roofs of buildings. See photos here of one of our 8 tons mini cranes dismantled to be lifted into a basement in Battersea, London by tower crane.
The applications for these mini cranes are endless!
We regularly hire them to tunnelling companies for man riding and skipping muck out of shafts, to mini piling companies who use them as service cranes handling casings and cages for mini piling rigs, demolition contractors, steel erectors and formwork contractors just to name a few.
They are so versatile we find new uses for them literally every day!
All of our mini cranes are available for hire with experienced CPCS qualified operators or self drive as required.
Our centrally located facility in the heart of the Midlands allows us to offer competitive mobilisation costs throughout the UK, especially with mini cranes as they travel on a standard plant lorry.
We are also happy to receive enquiries to supply mini cranes on hire anywhere in the European Union.
