Duma Rent takes five Unic spiders

28 February 2017 by Sotiris Kanaris


Belgian plant machinery rental company Duma Rent has taken delivery of five Unic spider cranes.

Among the cranes delivered were two URW 706-2 cranes – the first of the new 706-2 model to be sold in Europe. They also received two URW 295 models, along with the environmentally friendly ECO295 spider crane.  

Upon its arrival, the Eco spider crane went straight to work on a lifting project at the local airport in Belgium.

The new Unic URW 706-2 is the second highest capacity Unic cranes in the range, yet at 1670mm wide it is still narrow enough to gain access through a standard double doorway. It also offers a new hydraulic searcher hook and provides a maximum hook height of 25.9m.

All the cranes sold were supplied full spec with fly jibs and electric options.

After purchasing seven mini spider cranes in the middle of 2016 and with these five delivered in January 2017, the total Unic cranes in Duma Rent’s fleet is now 12.

The company will provide these Unic spider cranes on hire through their rental depots in both Belgium and in France.

Graeme Riley CEO of GGR Group said: “It’s fantastic to see companies across Europe significantly growing their spider crane fleet. The demand for these specialised mini cranes, to lift in some of the most compact and challenging environments has never been higher.”
