‘We used Load 28 for our Cranage on a 7 storey apartment building, using a MCH125 Tower Crane & Mobile Cranes.

The operating crew were excellent and worked in with us as a team which made my life easier.

I would recommend Load 28 and this type of Tower Crane for Sites where room is tight and access also restricted.’
