As economical self-erecting crane hire options, our selection of cranes can satisfy the most demanding customer needs and provide contractors, developers, and construction firms the perfect workhorse for congested worksites and urban environments.
A mainstay in the global construction industry, our range of Potain self-erecting tower cranes are renowned for their reliability, job site efficiency, and quick set-up. Their rapid deployment makes them ideal for short-term construction projects or projects that require frequent to infrequent operations. Each of our Potain models, from the IGO 13 to the IGO 50, come with varying capacities, yet each can be installed and commission in less than a day.
With a maximum height capability of 40 m, our self-erecting crane models are most practical for multi-story residential developments up to 6 stories high and small commercial and infrastructure projects that require a more efficient assembly of construction components.
Each crane model can be erected without the assistance of any other lifting equipment. A wireless remote feature means that rigging and operating can be done by a single, certified operator. With the use of the remote control, the operator always has sight of the load, allowing efficient operation of the crane without the need for a second person to guide the load.
By reducing manual labour to a single-person operation, our clients can derive value from their crane hire rental. The single crane operator can manage the many tasks assigned to different labourers such as lifting and setting trusses, lifting and setting rafters, material handling and lifting, and trash removal, to name a few. This reduces much of the need for dedicated labourers, further increasing our clients’ return on investment.
For the environmentally conscious client, our self-erecting cranes use a variable frequency electric motor. This reduces the demand on fuel costs and makes these self-erecting cranes entirely autonomous.
Their quiet and low-emission motors also reduce the disruption and stress imposed on local residential environments or commercial facilities. Its minimal on-site footprint not only leaves more room on an already constricted job site for more staging areas or material storage, but it also does not leave deep ruts or disturb the surrounding terrain, preserving the state of the site.
Our top-selling models for self-erecting crane hire include the following:
Potain IGO 13
Despite its compact size, the IGO 13 packs significant power and performance. The IGO 13 comes with a max. jib radius of 20 m, a max. load of 1,800 kg, and max. tip capacity of 700 kg. Compatible with all site configurations, the IGO 13 has an automated crane assembly for simple installation and disassembly. The IGO 13 has intuitive control actions, allowing the operator to perform all necessary actions through the remote control system.
Its unique design makes the IGO easy to transport. It can be transported in several ways: by a tow bar, as a fifth wheel, or with a tank carrier. It is equipped for safety and effective servicing.
Potain IGO 36
Requiring limited space, the IGO 36 is an efficient lifting solution for many job sites with constricted space. The IGO 36 is capable of a 4,000 kg lifting capacity and has a max. jib radius of 32 m. Its excellent reach and impressive height capabilities make the IGO 36 the ideal self-erecting crane for a versatile range of applications, from building multi-occupancy residential buildings to assembling complete wall sections and roof rafters.
Potain IGO 50
With a max. jib radius of 40 m and a load capacity of 4,000 kg, the IGO 50 is the largest self-erecting crane in the IGO range. Yet, this impressive lifting solution is built with a compact design, offering construction firms maximum versatility in even the most congested job site.
Like the rest of the IGO models, the IGO 50 includes a wireless radio remote control feature and simple and reliable mechanisms, allowing maximum operational manoeuvrability on any job site.
