Mobile Franna Crane Hire Services

A Franna crane (also known as pick and carry) is similar to a mobile crane in that it is designed to travel on public roads. However, Franna cranes have no stabiliser legs or outriggers, and are designed to lift a load and carry it to its destination within a small radius, then drive to the next job. Designed to lift an object, the Franna crane also has the capacity to "walk" it to a new position.  

In Australia, where large distances are encountered between job sites, Franna cranes are immensely popular. As the ultimate “taxi” crane, Frannas are extremely versatile and multipurpose. This is why NQ Group supplies Franna crane hire solutions allowing for use in workshops, plant sites and mines, not just in Brisbane but all over.

The capacity range of a Franna crane is usually ten to twenty tonnes maximum lift, although this is much less at the tip of the boom. Franna cranes have replaced the work completed by smaller truck cranes as the set up time is much faster.
