Five new 100 tonne capacity crawlers for Delden

UK crane rental firm Delden Crane Hire has expanded its fleet with the addition of five new 100-tonne capacity Kobelco CKE900G-3 crawler cranes. The company plans to use them on a variety of infrastructure projects including HS2 rail project.

The cranes have Stage V/Tier 5 compliant engines and are fitted with Kobelco’s K-CROSS remote monitoring system. K-CROSS also provides daily, weekly, and monthly operational reports to help plan service and maintenance activities.

The cranes come with G-Mode, which includes the G-winch for higher spooling speeds without raising the engine speed, the G-Engine, which reduces fuel consumption by limiting maximum engine speed with no loss of winch speed, and an Auto Idle Stop function (AIS) that stops the engine automatically when the crane is not lifting.

The first of the, Tier 5/Stage V compliant CKE90G-3s has been fitted with a specialist tractor-type, flat shoe undercarriage and comes with a variety of lifting options, said Kobelco.

Commenting on the acquisition, Sam Bladon, Delden Cranes’s hire manager, said, “The CKE900G-3 has proven to be an extremely versatile machine with a wide range of capabilities. It’s great to see further investment in the latest emissions compliant machinery, which will further strengthen our position within the crane hire Industry.”
