About Bennetts Cranes Limited

Bennetts Cranes is a specialist tower crane hire and sale company. We have built up an extensive client base, supplying cranes all over the UK and Channel Islands. We pride ourselves on our comprehensive and modern fleet of luffing jib, saddle jib and remotely controlled cranes. Increasingly, we are looking to invest in newer innovative models to meet the demands of ever-challenging urban sites. In 2020, we’ve begun the process of erecting a Raimondi LR 213 tower crane which will be the tallest freestanding luffing jib tower crane known to be in operation in the UK.

At Bennetts Cranes, we realise that hiring a tower crane is not simply about getting a quote. The right crane for the job has a significant impact on build time and budgets. Our highly skilled, in-house team will supply the perfect lifting solutions to any commercial or residential site, saving time and money in the process. Everything from planning to crane erection and operation can be coordinated by our team. We’re committed to keeping our products and training up to date in order to ensure the highest product and safety standards.

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 and 2019. Bennett’s cranes have also been regularly featured in construction publications, including Cranes Today and CPN magazine.


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.

Sales & Rental

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.

Self-erecting cranes
Self-erecting 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.
