Reliable, quality dry crane hire now available

SVSR’s fleet of mini cranes is ideal for tight access locations, public spaces, natural terrains and specialist operations including glass lifting, beam lifting and high rise construction.

Whilst we have a specialist team of crane operators and dogmen, our dry crane hire is a practical choice for construction companies and teams already equipped with rigging licences.

We have a lot of call for dry crane hire,” says Arthur Togias, SVSR Business and Development Manager. “We have both three-tonne and four-tonne mini cranes and while we often send an operator (wet hire) for one or two-day jobs, dry hire is particularly cost-effective for construction and longer commercial projects.”

Dry crane hire for construction


SVSR recently provided dry crane hire to BondClad Facades, a Sydney based company that supplies and installs façade materials including curtain wall glazing, prefinished cladding, architectural louvres, glass-reinforced concrete (GRC) and structural steel.

The crane was an ideal fit for the project – cladding installation at the University of New South Wales in Kensington, which is one stage of a larger redevelopment project.

We provided a brand new crane to BondClad for the project duration, which was around two weeks,” explains Arthur. “We provided fast delivery and it was the most cost-efficient option for them given they have their own trained crane operators. They were pleased with the service and particularly happy that it was a brand new crane.”

Our agile mini crane fleet


SVSR provided BondClad Facades with a new 4-tonne Maeda MC405 mini crawler crane, recently purchased to help meet accelerated demand across the marketplace for agile and tight access mini cranes.

The MC405 is Maeda’s latest 4-tonne model, featuring a working radius of 16m, a lifting capacity of 3.83t x 2.7m and a lifting height of 16.8m. It’s equipped with an outrigger safety system and a fully automatic five-section pentagonal telescopic boom.

Our fleet also includes the smaller but still powerful MC305, featuring an outrigger safety system with a maximum working radius of 12m and a lifting capacity of 2.98t x 2.5m.

Benefits of mini crane use


Cladding installation is one of many potential uses for mini cranes, as Arthur explains:

We’re seeing a lot more call for mini cranes from construction and civil companies, landscapers and plenty of glass companies. They’re a very versatile machine, so we can lift anything from fragile glass panels to large boulders, safely and effectively.”

While mini cranes have large span and lifting capability, they’re also ideal for tight access locations and areas that other cranes can’t reach, from electrical substations to heritage sites and interior spaces including cinemas and shopping centres.

The agility and accessibility are a drawcard for many SVSR customers.
