D Turner & Son takes delivery of first Enerpac Mini-Lift Gantry12 May 2022
UK machinery relocation specialist is first to buy Enerpac’s 50-tonne capacity self-contained mini gantry.
The first Enerpac ML40 Mini-Lift Gantry has been delivered to machinery removal specialist D. Turner & Son in Rochdale, Lancashire, UK. Designed for installing or removing machinery in tight spaces, the self-contained mini gantry has all an operator needs for nearly any 50-tonne lifting job using a standard 16amp 110v single phase power supply.
With a collapsed height of 1.9m, the ML40 fits through a standard personnel doorway and can be manoeuvred into position manually. The maximum lift height for the ML40 Mini-Lift Gantry is 5.5 metres, with 50-tonne lifting capacity in all three lifting stages. The ML40 Mini-Lift Gantry also comes with a wireless pendant control as standard which keeps the operator away from the load when lifted.
The ML40 Mini-Lift Gantry is a complete, self-contained system with everything on-board including the pump, controls, and drive system. The gantry movement is fully synchronised, as well as full load and stroke control across all four gantry booms.
Additional components such as skid tracks, header beams, lifting anchors, and other accessories are available. For ease of deployment, the ML40 Mini Gantry features freewheel operation for transportation and set up, and a roll cage for overhead lifting and/or towing and pushing for installation.
“The ML40 is a great addition to our lifting systems portfolio and our second Enerpac telescopic hydraulic gantry,” says Lee Turner, director, D.Turner & Son (Machinery Removal). “We have an Enerpac SL400 for larger loads up to 400T, while the MT40 will be ideal for smaller loads.”
“The ML40 Mini Hydraulic Gantry has been designed from the outset for machinery movers performing plant relocation services, heavy machinery installations, special transportation or machinery maintenance. It is sold as complete system with everything needed to perform lifting projects,” says Jeremy Stubbs, commercial director, Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology.
The ML40 will be on show at the Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology, Experience Days, in Hengelo, The Netherlands, from 16th-20th May 2022.
