Stark Bros crane trucks for hire throughout Canterbury

We operate four crane trucks — from small to large. Our largest, the PK92002-SH mounted Palfinger, lifts 3.1 tonnes at 20 metres and 1.2 tonnes at 29 metres and is one of the largest in Canterbury.

Crane trucks are very efficient. They are quick to set up, work in smaller spaces than a traditional crane, have full remote control — so no dogman needed, no counter-weights and the Fly-Jib provides extra versatility. Crane trucks are used in construction for steel beams, gib board into buildings, spa pools, etc. and industrial work with tanks, transformers, pumps and generators.

Combined with one of our many trailers this unit can transport equipment to your site, then lift it into place. This reduces the frustration of combining cranes and trucks — we do it all!

Our crane truck operators are all trained and certified. We also have man cages available to provide inspection/work platforms as required, in addition to craneage/placement of items.
