Our Cranes

We are available to service the lifting requirements of most areas of industry, with a fleet of 12 mobile cranes.
Our cranes range from a pivot steer Franna capable of lifting and maneuvering loads of up to 14 tonnes, to a 100 tonne all terrain Krupp crane which carries all its own equipment without the need for an accompanying gear truck in most cases.

Our Grove 100 tonne all terrain crane which has a 60mtr main boom and a footprint no larger than a 50t road crane.
We have recently acquired a Demag AC435 - 150 tonne mobile crane, which will be arriving soon.

Past Projects

We have been involved in the erection of literally thousands of building projects over the years.
Some of our projects include:

  • Trust Stadium and Waitakere Civic Centre in Waitakere City.
  • Auditoriums, teaching blocks and gymnasiums at schools such as Auckland Grammar, Westlake Boys and Girls, Alfristion College, Baradene College and Manurewa High School.
  • Large storage buildings like DHL and Recall.
  • Many apartment buildings throughout the CBD.

Lifting Accessories

Over the years we have developed an impressive range of lifting accessories and rigging equipment which enables us to tackle most jobs without fuss.
We have an extensive range of mancages, lifting platforms, concrete skips, lifting beams, A-frames and panel props up to 14m long.
However, if we don't have the right equipment at hand for your job, we will locate it and organize the equipment for you.

Drivers and Staff

The company has a key group of experienced crane operators, labour, project coordinators and management staff, most of who have been with Hi Lift for over 20 years, with vast collective industry knowledge.
In short, there isn't too much that we can't do!
