Spydercrane on the water

No, No, it's not a water strider! It’s none other than the URW706, floating merrily downriver in Great Britain to show a couple of 2.5 metric ton lock gates who’s boss. Because of the lock’s location, the Spydercrane had to be floated into place on a pontoon. Once in place, its adjustable outrigger legs made it easy to get a footing on the rough terrain, and the heavy gates were no match for the lifting capacity of this powerful mini crawler. We’re proud to offer our customers the services of the mighty URW706 Spydercrane, one of our 4 models available, so you can get the same power and versatility on this side of the pond from Great Lakes Lifting! Get the full story on the lock repair project here.
