The crane was bought through Kato’s European distributor Rivertek Services. According to Rivertek, Bray was the first company in the UK to own a complete range of new Kato City Cranes in their fleet, back in 2016.

Bray’s managing director Peter Bray said, “We are delighted to add another new Kato City Crane to our fleet. We have been very impressed with our Katos to date and can see an increased range of work with the increased speed and searcher hook. All our crane operators are familiar with these cranes; it makes it easier for operators changing from one Kato to another.”
