TIDD Pick & Carry Crane

New TIDD for Francranes

Western Sydney pick and carry hire specialist Francrane recently took delivery of a TIDD PC28 pick and carry. This is the second TIDD to supplied by The Baden Davis Crane Connection and TRT.

Starting in 1989, Francrane remains a family-owned crane hire business owned by Managing Director Brenton Owst-Atkinson. Brenton was working for Walter Wright as a driver/operator and eventually found himself working in the office. When Walter Wright closed down, Brenton saw an opportunity to immediately pick up the work which had been left behind. He hired two cranes out of Brisbane and the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, Francrane operates from its own yard own in Mt Druitt, a suburb in western Sydney.

The profile of a typical Francrane client varies greatly and includes anyone who needs to install, move, relocate or remove machinery, but the capabilities of the business are not limited to this, it has the capabilities to lift and shift anything. Francrane also utilises its partner network to be able to offer customers any size of crane in Sydney or nationwide.

“With the addition of the new TIDD PC28 we now have five pick and carries in the fleet with lifting capacities ranging from 10t to 28t. We also operate two Crane Trucks, plus a range of forklifts with jib with capacities ranging from 3t to 12t. These are supported by semis with a range of trailers,” said Brenton.
