Tracked Machine with Crane

Tracked Machine with Crane

JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd can offer a tracked machine with a mounted crane and loading deck which offers a high lift capacity to low weight ratio making it an extremely rugged, compact and versatile piece of equipment for off-road lifting projects. The Hitachi CG110D Morooka type tracked machine is equipped with a PM85027SP+J1416.20 Hiab type crane capable of 14,650kg at 4m radius to 675kg at 31m and a loading deck to allow goods to be carried.

Equipped with 6 hydraulic stabiliser legs and numerous high-performance outrigger pads giving all lifts the maximum support and lowest ground loadings for the toughest and most complex lifting operations. The rubber tracks and hydrostatic drive allows for a low ground pressure ratio, reduced ground compaction and excellent traction making it ideal for use in soft ground conditions and steep inclines to access a variety of location not accessible by conventional lorry loaders/hiabs such as wind farms, off road antenna site and solar farms.

Frequently Asked Questions

As their name suggests, tracked machines (also known as spiders) are self-propelled vehicles that move along tracks.

Unlike wheeled equipment, the larger surface area of the tracks distributes the weight of the vehicle better than tyres – allowing the vehicle to move across the ground without sinking.

Featuring aggressive treads, the tracks on these vehicles offer excellent traction, particularly in softer ground conditions. However, they can damage paved surfaces.

Tracked machines are lightweight and narrow. They offer increased mobility, allowing you to reach tighter areas with ease.

Thanks to their tracks, they offer fantastic traction and stability. They are typically used on sloped areas where the ground is soft and wet.

Add to this a HIAB crane’s ability to lift large loads at height, and these specialist machines are an excellent choice for the toughest and most complex lifting operations.

A tracked machine with a mounted crane facilitates rapid set-up and manoeuvrability, allowing tasks to be completed in less time without sacrificing quality, safety, or efficiency.

The price you’ll pay to hire one of our tracked machines with a crane will vary depending on several factors – including the type of tracked machine and HIAB you need, their unique specifications, the extent of your project, and how long you need to rent specialist equipment for.

As with most things, the larger the vehicle and the more advanced features it offers, the more you can expect to pay. Similarly, complex lifts will require more specialist equipment for longer periods, and this also adds to the overall price of tracked machine hire.
