Rabbit statue installation in GermanyOver the years UNIC mini cranes must have lifted millions of glass windows, countless cladding panels and numerous steel beams, but we think this might be the first time that a spider crane has lifted a giant rabbit!

But this wasn’t a hare-brained scheme, a UNIC URW-706  hired from rental company Baumo Kranservice was specially chosen to safely install this rabbit sculpture at a park in Germany.

The 6 tonne capacity mini crane model was hired for this unusual project to move the 4.5 tonne bunny (or “Hasi” in German) from the transport lorry onto a smaller truck which could travel through the park. The crane then lifted the rabbit off that truck into its final position in a sand pit.

The UNIC spider crane provided a safe and simple solution for this job, meaning that the customer was left a happy bunny rather than hopping mad!

GGR’s compact cranes have been hired to lift all creatures great and small (not real of course!) including a model elephant at Stratford Armouries Museum, a dinosaur at Prague’s DinoPark, a dog statue and a steel sculpture of a horse.
