Injection moulding company Chess Plastics have purchased a zero emissions F200E+ pick and carry crane from GGR Group to work at their factory in Worcestershire.
Received by co-owner Glyn Olden at Chess Plastics’ Droitwich factory last week, the eco-friendly F200E Plus is the latest addition to GGR’s range of pick and carry cranes which can lift loads weighing up to 25 tonnes without the need for outriggers.
The battery 20 tonne capacity F200E Plus model is ideal for handling, carrying, assembling, installing and removing machinery components in factory and workshop environments where space and access is restricted.
Chess Plastics initially hired the F200E mobile industrial crane to complete lifting operations around their factory before investing in a capital purchase. The compact crane was used to lift steel moulds weighing 7 tonnes onto injection moulding machines, a job where the crane’s radio remote control came in very useful for such precise installation work.
At just 2295mm wide, the fume-free F200E Plus crane features 180° rear hydraulic turning and front wheel drive, making it easy to manoeuvre around congested sites. This model also boasts 20 tonnes of lifting power, a maximum 6 metre working radius, 9 metre lifting height and a range of safety features.
