GGR’s miniature machines are always waiting in the wings to help with lifting work in the aviation industry. Our compact cranes have been hired and sold to customer’s working in London’s major airports and overseas to provide quick and safe solutions for lifting aircraft parts during important maintenance work.
A G150 pick and carry crane was hired from GGR to help with lifting operations on aeroplanes at London Stansted Airport. The lifting power of this 15 tonne capacity battery powered crane was used to suspend the aircraft’s engines so repairs could be carried out.
Quick to set up, the G150 compact crane model that provided a simple solution for this lifting task includes 180° rear hydraulic turning and can operate to maximum working radius of 6.1 metres and maximum lifting height of 8.5 metres.
Our compact and transportable UNIC mini spider cranes are taken to all sorts of lifting locations, but this UNIC URW-706 crane has surely gone to one of the most spectacular spots around as it sits at the very top of The Shard.
As one of the strongest spider cranes on the market, GGR’s 6 tonne capacity UNIC URW-706 mini crane is proving more and more popular for taking on heavy duty lifting operations both in the UK and in Europe. Nuclear site management contractor Magnox has recently purchased a URW-706 spider crane to assist in its site management projects.
