A UNIC URW-1006 mini crane has been hired from GGR to install an external fire escape staircase at Velocity Village, Sheffield. Before it could start work the world’s strongest mini crane had to be lifted into position, over a balustrade by a hiab.
The mighty URW-1006 was used to install a new steel fire escape staircase to the exterior of the building. With its unrivalled 10 tonnes of lifting power and maximum lift height of 22.8m the URW-1006 was the perfect machine for the job.
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.
