Select Plant Hire continues to reinvest in its equipment fleet with the addition of 16 new Terex® tower cranes, and another 20-30 units are expected to be delivered within the next 12 months. Select is committed to providing its customers with machinery tailored for each of their specific needs and only offering the latest and best in equipment on the market today. The recent addition of eight Terex CTL 630B-32, two Terex CTL 650F-45, four Terex CTL 272-18 luffing jib and two Terex CTT 332-16 flat top tower cranes is a reflection of that commitment. Many of the models are fleet additions, while the rest are fleet replacement.
According to Edward Carr, work winning leader at Select, the company continually looks to renew its fleet of hire cranes with the latest models and technology. “Our customers continue to demand even greater lifting capacity and greater engineering support as schemes become bigger and more complex. Our fleet of large luffing cranes has been developed to service their requirements and the Terex CTL 630B-32 has been hugely successful in delivering major projects such as Battersea Power Station in the UK,” he explained.
“At the same time we are also focusing on re-investing in our small to mid range cranes. The Terex CTL 272-18 mid-range luffing jib tower crane was developed with UK markets in mind with an improved free-standing height, out of service radius and telematics.”
The addition of the Terex CTL 630B-32 units and two larger Terex CTL 650F-45 luffing jib tower cranes bring Select’s fleet holdings to 43 tower cranes with a 32 tonne (35.3 USt) maximum capacity or above. The CTT 332-16 flat top tower cranes have replaced older CTT 331-16 models in Select’s fleet, and Carr said he expects to add several more in 2019. “The new models have been very successful in the UK market,” he explained.
Looking ahead, Select plans to continually expand and update its fleet of tower cranes in the coming year. “We only purchase equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers, and our demanding specifications are renowned for setting the agenda other suppliers follow,” added Carr. “The team at Terex Cranes have always delivered quality machines and do an excellent job of supporting us for all of our engineering, service and parts needs.”
