Heavy Rescue Unit


The Rotator is a mobile crane with a 360 degree working area and has a 140 tonne per meter boom with two 10  tonne winches on the boom and two 20 tonne winches on the slew ring  meaning that at the base all four of the winches can be run off the boom at the same time, enabling controlled  movement of the recovery at all times.

The front legs of the unit power out and down and have toothed slippers that help grip the road surface when using the tie back points on the legs for sideways winching.


The rear legs are also the same as this and all this helps  to keep the vehicle stable  and secure when lifting or winching.


The rear of the truck has six tie back points for rear winching, two which are on the bottom of the rear spades, which also flip over. The under lift has an extra long reach with a slim line boom.


All of this equipment is worked by a radio remote control with proportional control to enable the operator to view the job at different angles, enabling pin point control over the lift or winch at all times. Ensuring a smooth and safe recovery of your vehicle.




This is Frieda, our ex MOD Monster.  She is comfortable anywhere and is more than capable of lifting out any heavy plant machinery, with super powerful winching capabilities and a 20m boom there isn't a lot she won't move !
