Horizon Reinforcing and Crane Hire has bought the first Kato CR-350Ri, a 35 tonne capacity city crane, in Scotland from distributor Rivertek Services.

The crane has an hydraulically telescoping and luffing fly jib, and outrigger length sensors with multiple set up options. Its new colour touch screen safe load indicator system has working range limiting functions.

Stewart Dougall at Horizon said, “This new Kato is replacing our existing Terex AC 25 city crane and will offer our customers better lifting capabilities combined with Kato’s latest technology.”

Horizon, which is based in Falkirk, can provide all terrain, city and self erecting tower cranes from 20 to 300 tonnes capacity.
