A compact trailer crane hired from GGR Group proved to be the ideal machine for tackling high level reglazing at a BT office in South Shields, Tyneside recently.
The 1200kg capacityÂ Starworker 1200Â was hired with aÂ DSZ2 glass vacuum lifterÂ to replace a damaged angled unit at an 18.5 metre height at the Â£10.5 million One Harton Quay office building.Â Working at an 8 metre radius, the Starworker was able to lift the new 330kg unit into position, ready to be fitted by glaziers in a cherry picker basket.
The Starworker 1200 model is just 2.3 metres wide which means it can work in limited space whilst lifting to a height of up to 29.2 metres. Working quickly and with minimal set up time, the trailer crane caused no disruption to the working day of the officeâ€™s 500 BT employees.
GGRâ€™s Starworker 1200 trailer crane is available for hire and sale, with two other models also available in our trailer crane range, theStarworker 1000Â andÂ Starworker 1600.
