Crawler cranes are highly sought-after in civil construction for their easy setup on a tracked undercarriage and versatility on various ground types.
Designed for handling materials in tight spaces and obstacle-filled job sites, and commonly used in construction. With 4 stabilising outriggers, these cranes can safely lift up to 6 tonnes on various surfaces, including stairs.

Renowned for their impressive lifting capacity and height, tower cranes are the preferred choice for many crane hire suppliers. These cranes are securely attached to a concrete slab, providing stability and reliability. While transporting tower cranes can be a logistical challenge, they are essential for large-scale and long-term projects.
All terrain cranes are highly sought-after for their versatility across diverse construction sites, making them the optimal choice for challenging projects in mining, rural areas, and more. With various models available, these cranes excel in operating in any weather, ground conditions, and locations, ensuring smooth manoeuvrability.
Crane hire rates can vary dramatically based on a few factors that include, type of crane, tonnage required, location and whether you need an operator and rigger etc. On the low end you could be paying $140 an hour to dry hire a 12 tonne Franna crane, whereas a tower crane could cost you around $15,000 to hire for a month.

Crawler cranes are one of the larger pieces of heavy equipment available through iseekplant's crane hire suppliers, and can lift between 40 to 3,500 tonnes.

Depending on distance, delivery fees can cost between $200-$250. Mini crawler crane rates (2-3 tonnes) can cost between $455 and $660 a day.
Tower crane's demand the highest rates due to their sheer size and can be hired for about $15,000/month. On top of this monthly rate are fees for installation and disassembly which typically costs around $60,000 and includes shipping the crane to site, hiring the mobile crane used to assemble the tower crane, the crew that handles the assembly and so on.
