About Bennetts Cranes Limited

At Bennetts, we are proud to be the tower crane experts. Our extensive and modern fleet of luffing jib, saddle jib and remote-controlled cranes are selected from leading manufacturers from around the world and increasingly we are investing in new innovative models to meet the demands of challenging urban sites such as the need for tall tower cranes.

Our in-house team has the specialist knowledge to suggest the right lifting solution for any commercial or residential site. We can advise on the site location and manage the whole process of delivery, erection and crane operation with highly-skilled site staff.

Our commitment to updating our products and training our people ensures we stay ahead of new lifting technology, legislation and health and safety best practice.

Over the last few years the business has seen rapid growth, and Bennetts has been listed in the FT 1000: Europe’s fastest Growing Companies and London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ guide 2018, 2019 and 2020.
We deal with an extensive residential and commercial client base, supplying cranes across the UK from our headquarters in south west England, including the Channel Islands.


Different construction sites demand different lifting solutions. Our experienced team can assist you in hiring the right crane for the job. Here are the key differences between the cranes we offer.

Luffing jib cranes
Luffing jib cranes are an excellent solution for residential sites or any construction site with limited space in dense urban areas. Luffers can work with their jibs raised for the construction of very tall buildings, thus reducing the mast height required for the crane to clear the building. They offer a short in and out of service radius, which will avoid potential issues with oversailing nearby properties, and several luffing jib cranes can be placed close to each other to maximise ‘hook time’ for sites with large volumes of lifting work.

Saddle jib cranes
Saddle jib cranes are available in a wide range of heights and jib configurations making them extremely versatile for the majority of building projects. They can be supplied on three types of base, ballasted, fixing angles or rail travelling to suit site requirements. Larger saddle jib cranes are always operated from the cab, whilst smaller saddle jib cranes can be either cab or pedestrian controlled. Saddle jib or top slewing cranes require less space at ground level than a self-erecting crane.

Remote-controlled cranes
Remote-controlled cranes offer simple and fast erection on sites where access is good, allowing the crane to be driven into position. They are cheaper to transport than conventional tower cranes and easier to erect making them ideal for smaller, shorter building projects. One or more site employees can be trained to operate the self-erecting crane, ensuring sites can easily cover operator holiday and sickness absence.
