TIDD Articulating Cranes are proving popular with South Australian Crane Operators. The latest TIDD into service in the state has been purchased by Load 28, operating a Crane Hire business in South Australia. “We work mostly in Metropolitan areas so the TIDD was an easy choice with its tight turning circle and compact footprint, we can get in and out of jobs quicker, and it’s better on site for the operator.” Marcus Rigney, owner of Load 28 explains. “Particularly when purchasing 'new to market equipment', we evaluate the service response and parts availability. TIDD and RMB have demonstrated to us that the backup service is the best we have experienced and the fact the TIDD uses common running equipment ensuring local part availability makes this a great choice for our business. Our customers are telling us they really like the safety features built into this crane”
Max Cranes were the earliest South Australian Crane Operator to put a TIDD into their fleet, their first has now been in service over a year, and the second crane has now been working for nine months. "It is a pleasure to write this testimonial for TRT on the Tidd PC25 pick and carry crane,” says Mark Kuhn, Managing Director of Max Cranes. “I now have two of these cranes working in my crane fleets. The first crane was delivered in October 2013 and works in Port Augusta for Max Cranes. The second was delivered in February 2014 and works in Whyalla in our Steel City Crane business. The cranes were professionally supplied by the local agent RMB Services and have given us fantastic service. The crane boasts an impressive load chart in a small package allowing us to go where other cranes cannot. The safety features and road friendly suspension make this crane a favourite with our operators and our customers. This is a crane I have no hesitation recommending to you."
