55T Crane aquired by Appleton Piling Ltd

Appleton Piling Ltd purchased a 55T hydraulic telescopic crawler crane in July 2008. The Logicrane 55.38 telescopic crawler crane offers us the reliability and versatility of a traditional crawler crane with the flexibility and quick rigging time of a mobile crane.

The Logicrane 55.38 gives us the versatility to work in very confined areas, without needing the time and space required to rig and derig a conventional lattice boom crawler crane.

The undercarriage of the Logicrane 55.38 measures 3.210m for transportation. The Logicrane 55.38 can be ready for work within half an hour of arrival on site, when the undercarriage has been extended to 4.410m for full operational duties.

The Logicrane 55.38 has a maximum capacity of 55 Tonnes at a working radius of 2.5m, with boom lengths up to 38.0m. The modern computer system can be programmed to restrict both the boom length and the direction of the slew.

The modern design enables fully hydraulic control for smooth and reliable safe operation. An additional benefit of the Logicrane 55.38 is that the cab can be elevated to approximately 3.5m above ground, giving the operator an excellent view of the works in hand.
