Coussens Crane Hire has added two new Demag all-terrain cranes to its fleet
British crane rental company Coussens Crane Hire, which is based in Bexhill-on-Sea in East Sussex, has just added two new Demag all-terrain cranes to its fleet.

The delivery consisted of a Demag AC 60-3 with a 50 m main boom and a Demag AC 100-4L with a 59.4 m main boom, which can have its reach extended with a 19 m swing-away jib, which the company also ordered.

Both cranes feature the IC1-Plus control system, which utilises the maximum available lifting capacities when working with asymmetrical outrigger configurations in tight space conditions, as well as a remote control.

"The remote control is particularly useful when it comes to lifts without an unobstructed view," explains managing director Paul Coussens, who says the crucial factor that influenced his purchase decision for the AC 100-4L was its compact design: The crane is 2.55 m wide, and no other crane in the same capacity class has a smaller width. He also considers the Demag AC 60-3 all-terrain crane to be the ideal machine for lifting roof trusses, steel girders, and concrete components at large working radii or over and beyond obstacles. "In addition, with its lifting capacity of up to 60 T, the AC 60-3 is also the right choice for lifting heavy loads such as boats at tight radii. This makes it a particularly versatile unit for our purposes," he adds.

The family business, which was founded in 1937 in East Sussex, has grown into a leading crane rental company and service provider that offers its services throughout the entire South of England and South West England. In addition to its headquarters in Bexhill, the company has four depots in Detling, Mountfield, Sheffield Park and Littlehampton.

Coussens Crane Hire provides lifting services as well as heavy haulage services and machine and plant assembly and disassembly services.
