Highest Elevation a Spydercrane has worked from?

Highest Elevation a Spydercrane has worked from?

We make references all the time about the heights to which our Spydercranes have worked above the ground. Every so often we get asked by our customers, “What was the highest heights one of the Spydercranes have worked from?”

The question came up again recently during a rental call. It became quite the watercooler topic of conversation. So we started to ask around.

The highest we could find: 310m off the ground

The highest height we could find was from European distributors UNIC Global. They share a story online of how the grandaddy of our line, the UR-W706C (European equivalent to the URW-706C) was placed atop “The Shard,” skyscraper in London.

What is The Shard in London?

The Shard, at the time of this writing, has become Europe’s largest skyscraper. It was inaugurated at the beginning of the 2012 Summer Olympic games in London. Visiting this link to their website, you’ll see that, in fact, the tallest skyscraper in the world had, for a time, one of our cranes sitting on top.

We’re still seeing if we’ve seen one go higher

If you have a project that puts our cranes higher than atop a 95-story building, please let us know. Of course, please takes some pictures. The view should be incredible. And, with your permission, we would like to feature your picture on our website and social media profiles.
