Kato for Bray

UK rental company Bray Cranes has taken delivery of a 25 tonne Kato CR-250v city crane from UK distributor Rivertek Services.

The CR-250Rv features a 29 metre main boom, an 8.2 metre fully hydraulic jib, and 7.5 tonne searcher hook. Power comes from a Stage V Cummins diesel, while a 360 degree camera system and anti-lock braking comes as standard.

Bray managing director Peter Bray, said: “We are always looking to offer the very best service to our customers and we are delighted to add this new Kato CR-250Rv to our fleet. We have been impressed with Kato city cranes for the past few years. This has made the decision to invest further very easy for us. We receive an excellent backup from Rivertek’s team in the UK and all of our Kato’s have proved to be worthwhile and trouble free investments.”

Rivertek operations manager Ivan Bolster added: “This new model was recently launched and sales have been extremely busy to date. Many crane hire companies in the UK have operated 20 to 30 tonne city class cranes in their fleets for a long time, many of which are aging and this compact 25 tonne crane boasts features such as the latest model Stage V engine, a 29 metre boom, two winches as standard and lots more, making them the natural replacement for these cranes.”
