Recently, Morgan Est has invested in a number of Sennebogen lattice boom crawler cranes supplied by E H Hassell who is the UK distributor for Sennebogen. Five cranes in total have been supplied which include 1 x 650HD, 2 x 680HD and 2 x 6100HD. The latter being the very first 6100HD construction cranes supplied in the UK!
The 6100HD is powered by a Caterpillar C15 ACERT 354Kw engine and is mounted on a hydraulically extendable undercarriage. With a main boom of 52.3 metres and an auxiliary jib for loads up to 12 tons this machine is fitted with a 36 ton rear counter weight, a 15 ton car body counterweight and 2 x 16 KN winches.
The 650HD series C machine is the latest series introduced by Sennebogen approximately 18 months ago. With a nominal 50 tons capacity and 2 x 12 ton winches this machine features a hydraulically retractable undercarriage for transportation. Powered by a Caterpillar C9 engine the machine included an auxiliary jib for loads up to 12 tons.
Morgan Est also took delivery of 2 x 680HD lattice boom crawler cranes which feature a hydraulically extendable undercarriage. With a main boom length of 48.5 metres these machines included an auxiliary jib for loads up to 12 tons.
All five machines supplied were specified with Wylie safe load indicator with data logger and slew restrictor and a hydraulically elevated C270 type, F2000 cabin.
Additionally, Morgan Est specified further equipment which included camera systems, anti-vandal guard system, additional lighting and special tunnel light system.
These cranes are now currently working on Morgan Est contracts throughout the UK and Northern Ireland.
Morgan Est is delighted with their latest acquisitions. Donald Steele, Morgan Est mechanical plant manager, said: "The partnership with Morgan Est, E H Hassell and Sennebogen has been tremendous in developing a product capable of operating across all Morgan Est divisions, adding increased safety, productivity and cost effectiveness to our business."
Morgan Est has also ordered a further seven new cranes, for delivery in 2008. These include 2 x 680HD and 3 x 650HD lattice boom crawler cranes, and also 2 x 683HD telescopic crawler cranes.
