Heavy Lifting / Crane Hire

HIAB Vehicles
Plant and machinery movement, portable cabins, shipping or storage containers and roof trusses are just some of the large and bulky items that we regularly arrange to transport. Hiab crane assisted haulage is available throughout Cumbria & North Lancashire and can be hired on an hourly, daily or weekly basis. With options from 18 to 100 Tonne Mtrs. This factor simply multiplies the maximum lifting capacity with the associated radius. For example, a Hiab that lifts a maximum of 2.5t at a radius of 40 Mtrs is classed as a 100 Tonne Mtr machine.

Crawler Cranes
With lifting capabilities of between 2 and 8 Tonnes and heights reached more than 15 Mtrs, Crawler cranes are a simple solution to lifting challenges in many industry sectors. Small, manoeuvrable and complete with caterpillar tracks the Crawler cranes will work in confined spaces and handle rough terrain with ease.

Opertated City Cranes & Truck Cranes
From a 20 Tonne city crane to an 80 Tonne all terrain truck mounted crane, D S Plant Hire can always find exactly the right machine for your job. We will arrange a site visit to establish the specification of the job on your behalf and make a recommendation based on our specialist’s knowledge and experience. These operated cranes will arrive bang on time and will work as long and as hard as you do to complete the job on time & on
