Lifting Backup Power Supply Modules on a Tight Site in Bradford

The Hooka team had a really interesting tight-site lift this week, working alongside the Kent Group for Network Rail.

One of the 300kg backup power supply modules near Bradford Station needed exchanging. Following some detailed pre-planning it was agreed that the Hooka handler would provide the ideal ‘Plan B’ solution, with its 1.2 tonne lift and carry capacity and 1 metre width allowing it to negotiate the 300 metre long narrow access route alongside the rail line.

With its low ground pressure rubber tracks and suitable load spreader materials the machine was able to safely traverse the existing trackside infrastructure without causing any damage and then squeeze into the plantroom under the 2.2 metre high doorway.

The module was then smoothly exchanged, before the Hooka retraced its footsteps and loaded the damaged unit onto the flatbed delivery vehicle. A very successful operation and hopefully a precedent set for future rail work.

Thank you for the business!

Lift and Shift Bulky Items in Restricted Access Sites

The Steel Beam Lifter Team make good use of the capabilities of the Hooka mini tracked crawler handler, with it’s compact size and great lifting strengths we not only install steel beams, but other potentially difficult to move items that are delivered to the kerbside and need moving and installing in areas where large machines simply can’t reach.

The safest, easiest and fastest way to move bulky items
