The company has just taken delivery of a Terex Demag TC2800 with a lifting capacity of 600t.

This offers substantial time and cost savings for customers in comparison to similar sized crawler cranes. Its impressive outrigger base gives excellent lifting capacities up to 600 tonne and a maximum boom length of 192 m.

Séamus Corbett, Operations Director with Wm. O’Brien commented, “We are committed to continuously investing in the most suitable cranes to best serve our customers’ needs and are delighted to have taken delivery of the TC2800. It’s a compact machine offering great capacity and the ability to work at higher wind speeds and will be of benefit to a wide range of our customers.

The other mobile cranes due this year will continue to enhance our offering, ensuring that we keep modernising our fleet, and providing the most flexible solutions depending on weights, working radius and site access.”
