Rexquote have recently launched a new vehicle called the 'Gigacrane'.
November 2008 sees the launch of the latest addition to the Gigarailer family.
Gigacrane has been designed and built specifically for lifting and positioning OLE equipment at height.
The use of the powerful winch ensures that all lifting is carried out in a vertical plane thus simplifying lift planning.
This machine is the first of its kind – repair and renewal sites have been waiting for this type of machine for many years.
The Gigacrane features a four stage hydraulic telescopic boom giving the operator fine control over the hook position.
The on board hydraulic winch is rated to 4.1 tonnes and can be sheaved up to four times giving a maximum winch capacity of 16 tonnes.
The crane can lift to a height of 12.5 m at a radius of 4.5 m, and 13 m at a 3.5 m radius.
The maximum radius achievable is 11.7 m giving a hook height of 3 m.
