The 60-tonne capacity class Challenger 3180 joins a fleet of 18 all-terrain cranes at the family-owned business that was founded by Arnold and Anne Baggott in 1985.
Managing director Arnold Baggott said: â€œThe Challenger 3180 was our preferred choice for a number of reasons, but particularly for its compactness on three axles and for having the longest boom length in its class.
â€œTo meet the growing and diverse needs of our customers it was clear from the outset that we needed an all-terrain crane with a 50-metre boom system. We trawled the market and quickly realised that the Challenger 3180 was exactly the right crane for us. With a strong load chart and superb driver environment, this latest addition to the fleet promises to deliver everything our customers want and expect.â€
â€œItâ€™s also fair to say we were influenced by the Terex after-sales service and support available to us in our area. Itâ€™s important to have the confidence and reassurance that comes from having factory-trained engineers on your doorstep.â€
At 4m radius the Challenger 3180 can lift up to 37.9 tonnes. As well as a 50-metre main boom, it has a 16-metre extension.
