Raimondi distributor Strictly Cranes Pty Ltd, New South Wales, Australia, has sold three new Raimondi tower cranes to residential builder-developer Piety THP. The two 10-tonne MRT159s with 1.7 meter masts and the 10-tonne MRT152 with a standard mast section are scheduled to be onsite and operational for three years.
“We recommended the Raimondi MRT159s for this jobsite as this tower crane can be climbed to heights that other heavy lifting machinery can’t,” said Ramey Alkhoshaibi, founder and commercial director, Strictly Cranes. “Another deciding factor was that the configuration of this crane was deemed advantageous because of its high freestand, and that it can be climbed with lesser bracing to attain the highest points of 100 meters.”
With several concurrent projects, Alkhoshaibi said the MRT152 is versatile enough to meet its client’s respective needs. For example, on one jobsite, the cranes are tasked with lifting rebar, precast panels, and other site materials like timbers, formwork, and scaffolding. The cranes will also hoist excavators out of the hole and other heavy machinery as needed.
The three cranes were erected in one day each, with Strictly Cranes arranging technicians and riggers to erect them safely and quickly. Strictly Cranes also arranges for tier one operators and dogmen to ensure smooth operation of the crane and project timelines are respected. “We do this for many of our clients, and certainly the service includes monitoring by Strictly Cranes on a 24-hour basis. We don’t just provide a crane, we provide the labor and the lifting accessories including Boscaro brick cage, manbox, kibbles for concrete together with the first aid cage as required safety site regulations,” Alkhoshaibi said.
Strictly Cranes also recently sold and will erect a Raimondi luffing jib LR213 to a height of 100 meters for developer-builder ALAND, specially configuring the crane to attain a higher freestand.
