Machine Moving and Rigging

Crane Trucks

Crane trucks offer rigging teams an excellent lift, load, transport and offload ability. Providing the truck can get access to the machinary, we have crane trucks up to 40 T/M available for any rigging job.

Mobile Cranes

Heavy machinary and complex lifts require the use of mobile cranes with experienced and certified riggers. Valuable machinary is lifted moved and placed into position with our red seal rigging teams.

Up to 400 Ton Gantries

Gantries are often required to lift very heavy machines to load onto trailers ready for transport. Our abnormal load division will ensure that the requisite permits and support vehicles are in place for the move.

Machine Moving and Rigging


The term rigging refers to the lifting of heavy industrial equipment. This is a highly specialised industry and often goes hand in hand with the loading, transportation, offloading and positioning of this industrial equipment. To this end Crane Truck SA has assembled a team of experts with combined experience in excess of 250 years’ worth of certification / experience in the management of rigging and crane operation to handle all requirements. Each quote is tailor made to suit our clients’ specific needs and pricing is very competitive.

We pride ourselves in the fact that exacting standards in terms of Health and Safety Regulations are adhered to throughout the performance of each project assigned to us. We also ensure that all legislated refresher courses are diarised and carried out as and when required, as well as our riggers and crane operators receiving the required training for all new equipment brought into the fleet.

Rigging Crews

CRANE TRUCK SA has assembled a team of experts with combined experience in excess of 250 years which is constantly being added to as the fleet grows. These teams include red seal riggers who are highly experienced and certified to perform very complex lifts, tandem lifts and lifts at extreme height.

Some of our cranes have booms with fly-jibs that extend to over 80m. Lifts that have a lengthy horixontal reach with little height need to be very carefully calculated to avoid tipping the truck. In some cases counter weights as well as outrigger deployment are essential to ensure a safe lift.

With the 210 ton and 160 ton knuckle boom cranes it is possible to “punch” a load into a building horizontally making the knuckle boom cranes essential for cost effective rigging, often negating the need for additional rigging equipment.

Crane trucks

Crane Trucks are specially manufactured with strengthened chassis in order to load, transport and offload small to medium size consignments as well as bear the weight of the crane. The cranes lifting capacity can very quite substantially from as little as 2/3 tons to cranes with lifting capacities over 40 Tons.  The Crane Truck SA fleet can supply vehicles equipped with either front or rear mounted cranes depending on requirements. They are highly mobile and very effective in urban settings.

The fleet of 4×4 crane trucks were specifically commissioned for pipeline, solar and power line projects that require the crane trucks to operate on rough terrain including fairly steep inclines. This fleet includes 6×6 and 8×8 crane trucks making the fleet essential for large power infrastructure projects.

Hydraulic Gantries

Hydraulic gantries provide heavy lifting capabilities for loading and offloading exceptionally heavy pieces of equipment. The 400T gantry is often used at engineering firms, power stations and mines around Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga to load and offload abnormal loads. Typically, a lowbed would drive it’s load under the gantry, the equipment would be professionally rigged with the requisite slings and lifted off the load bed. The truck would then drive off and the equipment lowered into place or used in the opposite fashion. Specialist riggers and qualified, experienced drivers are used to ensure a flawless operation.

Mobile Cranes

The fleet of mobile cranes owned by our partners includes small mobile cranes with 5 Ton maximum lifting capacities, all the way up to 500 Ton lifting capacities. These configurations of mobile cranes used as single lifters or tandem lifters can complete most jobs in South Africa. Our 160 Ton and 220 Ton knuckle boom cranes are a game changer for the rigging industry, allowing heavy lifts at a low cost due to the ability of the cranes to travel on the roads. Call us for more info on the knuckle boom rigging cranes and their usage.
