Hird is taking five Valla V cranes into sales stock – four of which have been on display at the GIS 2023 cranes, access and lifting show in Italy – as demand for the innovative pick and carry cranes grows.
Orders have already been placed for two of the eye-catching advanced mini cranes with interest remaining strong across the entire range.
Hird Sales and After Sales Manager Carl Cooper attended GIS 2023, held at the Piacenza Expo Centre, near Milan, Northern Italy, to meet more potential buyers on the Manitex Valla stand.
Capturing the imagination
He said: “The performance of pick and carry cranes in Valla V range has impressed many crane users. It’s a step up for an already excellent product, and the design has caught the imagination.
“Valla has taken the concept of a compact crane to a new level, or should we say shrunk it to a new smaller size, while enhancing performance and providing a strong sustainability advantage with all-electric power.”
Hird also offers an extensive range of Vallas in its pick and carry crane hire fleet, including Valla V cranes. All have industry-leading performance for a range of lifting tasks, including machinery lifting and moving, and factory maintenance.
Wireless remote operation
All the cranes in the Valla V range are designed to be driven and operated remotely using a wireless hand-held console.
The Valla V60R has a maximum safe working load (SWL) of 6t, a maximum working height of 7.9m and a maximum working radius of 4.9m. Capacity at maximum working height is 1.5t.
The Valla V80R has a maximum SWL of 8t, a maximum working height of 9m, and a maximum working radius of 5.5m. Capacity at maximum working height is 2.5t.
The Valla V110R has a maximum SWL of 11t, a maximum working height of 10m, and a maximum working radius of 6.2m. Capacity at maximum working height is 4t.
All mini cranes in the V range are designed to deliver flexible lifting. All five ordered by Hird have variable position jib heads and can be combined with powerful winches.
Highly flexible platform
Carl Cooper said: “The Valla V range is a step change in pick and carry crane performance. Zero fumes, zero emissions and low-noise operation are ideal for working in clean and safety critical environments.
“Our cranes on the Manitex Valla stand at GIS 2023 attracted a lot of attention. What is so good, is that each model can be adapted to specific client needs. It’s a highly flexible platform.”
Hird will work with clients to develop the right operational specifications for every client. For example, the company plays a leading roll in promoting Valla Cranes in the aviation industry.
Hird can also provide competitive and flexible financial packages, along with excellent after sales support through its in-house network of mobile maintenance, servicing and testing engineers.
