Leave the
heavy lifting
to us

Taking your developments to new heights

Choosing the right crane is crucial for precast concrete projects. Let our experts help you find the perfect heavy lifting crane for your site.

Our high-capacity cranes

With the rise in precast concrete building methods, we understand the demand for cranes that can not only lift to great heights but can handle very heavy loads. Our growing fleet of high-capacity cranes is suited to the requirements of any site, from shopping malls to apartment blocks. These cranes have much larger lifting capacities than standard tower or ‘city’ cranes.

Our most popular cranes for lifting precast concrete include the Sáez SL 450 which has a freestanding height of 60 metres and a maximum lift capacity of 24 tonnes. We also have the Raimondi 330 which has a maximum jib length of 60 metres and a maximum lift capacity of 18 tonnes. Our most recent addition, the Sáez SL 730, has an impressive maximum lift capacity of 36 tonnes and is ideal for lifting very heavy precast concrete panels.

The moving of such heavy objects at height can pose numerous health and safety risks. At Bennetts safety is our utmost priority. That’s why our team of experts is available to help you hire a high-capacity crane that works for your site, and ensure it is operated and maintained in compliance with health and safety regulations.

Precast, modular concrete building methods are gaining traction as they are cost-effective and fast to construct. We supply the taller and high lift capacity cranes required to handle the weight and size of this kind of load.

Case studies

Bennetts receives the first Sáez SL 730 tower crane

We’re delighted to have the first Sáez SL 730 tower crane – the largest model in the Sáez luffing jib fleet. It has an impressive maximum load of 36 tonnes, perfect for off-site developments.


St Martin’s Place, Birmingham development

We erected two Sáez SL 450 tower cranes for a site in Birmingham, which used precast concrete panels. The tallest freestanding crane was at 60 metres.


Camden Goods Yard, London

We supplied the first Sáez SL 730 in the UK to an 8-acre site in central London to support the lifting of heavy precast concrete frames. Watch this video of the cranes operating at Camden Goods Yard to see how we overcame the specific site challenges.
