Collett thinks big with the new 2055
Enjoy a video about the biggest crane in the world on a 32 tons truck. The new Effer 2055 in the 6s version seduced even the leader of heavy lifting in the UK, Collett & Sons Ltd.
The 135 txm Effer 2055 articulated crane in the video was delivered and mounted on an 8×4 Mercedes 4155 tractor unit by our partner in the UK, Effer Atlas, and it stands out among an extensive fleet of loader and articulated cranes used in the company’s transport and heavy moving business.
The new crane features a seven section boom – base plus six extensions – and can lift 36,000 kg at 3.50 metres – the equivalent of 44 football teams – and handle 8,700 kg at a 15 metres radius. The four axle tractor unit can handle maxium axle loads of up to 16.5 tons with a Gross Vehicle Weight of up to 150 tons.
Collected from the production factory in Bologna, Italy on 16th July, the machine arrived at Collett’s Head Office in Halifax on Friday 18th July. The Effer 2055 offers an unrivalled lifting capacity and provides Collett with the opportunity to showcase its expertise.
The model, already available up to 9S version or 6S+Jib 6S as well, represents an important evolution for the category: the electronic control system Progress 2.0 increases crane performance even when extension is at its maximum, facilitating the hydraulic system integration with other operative functions like the front stabilizers.
Moreover, the crane is equipped with Virtual Shield, an anti-collision system preventing any contacts between the crane and the truck cab for maximum safety.
“The welcome addition of the new Effer 2055 into our fleet allows Collett Transport to take a huge leap forward within the industry, offering unique lifting capabilities and providing customers with a cost effective solution for their heavy lift requirements”, said managing director David Collett. “The Effer 2055 is the very first crane of this capacity off the production line in Italy. Atlas Cranes is the recognised dealer in the UK for Effer and as we have worked with them in the past we were confident that the acquisition would be the ideal addition to our fleet. We are delighted with the results.”
Jim Smith, managing director of Effer Atlas UK, added: “Atlas are delighted to have delivered this class leading machine to one of our valued customers. Collett’s commitment to investing in new technology secures them as one of the foremost heavy haulage companies in the UK”.
