CRAWLER CRANES For Hire Manchester

An essential part of most projects in the North-West, Mini Crawlers are designed so that they can be operated by both electrical and diesel power sources. These machines are designed so that when operated by electricity, they are suitable for internal use as they will not generate any potentially harmful fumes unlike other crane designs.

These cranes are the perfect tool for domestic projects and for smaller construction sites. They offer a complete range of advantages, including:

  • Radio Controlled.
  • Silent Running.
  • Safe for Internal Use.

With an operating boom length of up to 21 metres, these cranes can manoeuvre waste and materials across all kinds of worksites. Mini Crawlers can also be used to move any worksite waste over blockages and otherwise impassable terrain.

These mini crawlers are designed so that they can be used to lift all manner of materials, including equipment and waste. As an example of smaller lifting equipment they can be used to quickly and safely move weights of up to 10 tonnes.


Mobile cranes are extremely common on construction projects of all sizes from large to small. Whether it’s commercial or industrial worksites in Manchester or surrounding areas. 

The only downside to these cranes is that they can require a large space to set up. Once they have been installed and are up and running, they are able to move all kinds of materials and weights.

Some of the models are large mobile cranes that AE-Engineering provide are able to lift weights of up to 200 tonnes. These cranes are ideal for working at height and offer a wide range of functional boom lengths.

Being mobile means that these cranes can be set up and taken down in an extremely short time frame. They can also be manoeuvred around your worksite into a position where they will offer the most reliable and practical service.

Their versatile design allows these large cranes to be equipped with a variety of practical features. These include:

  • Telescopic Boom Lengths for All Kinds of Projects.
  • Can Be Reliably Secured In-Place.
  • Comfortably Lift Weights of Up to 200 Tonnes.


If the project you are undertaking requires you to lift extremely heavy weights to tall heights, then mobile tower cranes sound like the perfect solution for you. Although large mobile cranes are a great choice for working at height, they require a great deal of space and manoeuvrability to set up. On the other hand mobile tower cranes are much thinner and require much less space on the worksite. This design and manoeuvrability makes mobile tower cranes ideal for use in urban and inner-city projects.

Mobile tower cranes are some of the most common cranes you will see in urban and city areas. The time these cranes take to set up can be extremely quick, often in as little as 15 minutes. Along with their quick set up time, these mobile tower cranes can also deliver an extremely wide lifting radius. That means they can transport weights and materials to and from any part of your worksite.

Here at AE Engineering, we can provide mobile tower cranes in and around Manchester and the Greater Manchester area for all kinds of worksites.

Here is a list of some of the features you’ll be able to benefit from when you hire a mobile tower crane including:

  • Telescopic Booms in A Variety of Sizes.
  • Quick and Simple Set Up, Requiring Limited Space.
  • A Lifting Capacity of Up To 6 Tonnes.
