We solve your lifting and transport needs

We were presented with a particularly difficult problem which involved trimming, lifting, moving and placing a 20 Ton leadwood tree into the center of a building which was on top of a 100m high kopje. With the use of our 210T Erkin Knuckle Boom and various other pieces of heavy machinary, we successfully Trimmed, lifted and transported the tree from it’s original location about 30km away and then placed the tree without any damage. The instruction was that the tree is a piece of art and is not to be damaged.
