Sparrow Crane Hire responds to increase in restricted urban job sites with Potain Hup 40-30 purchase

  • Bristol-headquartered Sparrow Crane Hire has witnessed a growing trend for restricted urban job sites, where the Potain Hup 40-30 comes into its own.
  • The 30 m height under hook clears tall urban buildings with ease, while the adjustable outriggers ensure stability when working on a gradient. 
  • The speed and ease of erection saves time and money for the end-customer and Sparrow Crane Hire sees plenty of demand for this crane.

Sparrow Crane Hire Ltd. has taken delivery of a new Potain Hup 40-30 self-erecting tower crane, responding to an increase in restricted urban job sites.

The 30 m height under hook clears tall urban buildings with ease, while the adjustable outriggers ensure stability when working on a gradient.  

The speed and ease of erection save time and money for the end-customer and Sparrow Crane Hire sees plenty of demand for this crane. The Hup 40-30 has a maximum capacity of 4 tonnes, and can handle one tonne at its 40 metre jib tip. 

The Potain Hup 40-30 was delivered directly to a site in Bristol to construct residential accommodation on a location surrounded by retirement flats that are already in use, requiring the contractor to maintain access at all times. The site is also on a slight gradient, making the adjustable height settings of each of the chassis legs another important advantage of the Hup 40-30.

Tim Williams, sales manager at Sparrow Crane Hire, commented: “The Hup 40-30 was a great choice for this project. It’s working well within the particular project restraints and the customer is happy. The ease of transport and speed of set up are comparable to an IGO 50, which saves a day’s installation for the customer and the cost that entails. And it has that extra height difference to clear high buildings in urban work. That 7-8 m difference provides a considerable advantage.”

Sparrow Crane Hire Ltd. operates throughout the United Kingdom, providing a full range of cranes, ancillary equipment and related training.
