UK rental company Crowland Cranes has taken delivery of a 20 tonne Kato CR-200Rf city type All Terrain crane.
The CR-200Rf features a 28 metre, six section boom with a 5.8 metre telescopic jib, as well as a five tonne searcher hook. The crane was delivered by Kato's European distributor Rivertek Services, and replaces a Terex AC30 city crane in the company’s fleet.
Managing director Peter Issit said: “We are delighted to add a new Kato city crane to our rental fleet. We like the build quality and reliability of Japanese manufactured cranes and we are sure that this new Kato will fit into our rental fleet well.”

Rivertek Services operations manager Ivan Bolster added: “It’s been a pleasure dealing with Peter and the team at Crowland Cranes. We are sure this crane will be a success within Crowland Cranes’ fleet and we look forward to supporting Peter and the team in the future.”
“2018 has seen the Kato brand return to many major crane rental companies and contractors and the latest Rf models have been well received. The order book for the first quarter of 2019 is quite busy and we are expecting steady development throughout the year.”
