Hallett Silbermann adds Fassi knuckle booms
By Alex Dahm29 July 2008
The F660 AXP.26 and two F235 AXP.24 models are mounted on Volvo trucks. The 63 tonne-metre F660AXP.26 is the largest in Hallett Silbermann’s fleet. Maximum safe working load is 16 tonnes and at the 16.1 m maximum reach it lifts 3,100 kg. The two F235AXP.24s are mounted on Volvo FE 6 x 4 rigids. Load moment rating is 20 tonne-metres and maximum safe working load is 5.15 tonnes. At the full reach of 12.7 m capacity is 1,345 kg.
Both models are from the latest Evolution generation of Fassi cranes. Standard features include the ProLink system where boom sections can be angled 15 degrees upwards and the XF “extra fast” oil regeneration system to increase jib extension speed. Also standard is radio remote control with a visual display in the transmitter to allow the operator to see the crane’s operating parameters.
Local Fassi dealer Transloader Services supplied the cranes to Hallett Silbermann, which has more than 50 trucks and around 30 loader cranes in its nationwide operation. Construction and civil engineering is its largest sector of customers. It is involved with contractors doing foundations and groundworks on the Olympics sites and does lots of machinery moving.
