When you’re on the job, your equipment can’t let you down. You need a solution that eliminates your problems and improves your operations, delivering on safety.
Penny Hydraulics can help.
For over 20 years we’ve been supplying utility and highways companies with the tools needed to overcome manual handling challenges and get the job done right, first time. And have worked with some of the UK’s largest businesses, including BT, Royal Mail, Local Councils, Severn Trent, and Balfour Beatty. We’re also proud approved converters for Vehicle Mounted Lifting Equipment (VME) for VW, Renault, Nissan, and Ford.
Our range of Vehicle Mounted Lifting Equipment (VME) and davits are designed to reduce the risk of manual handling related injuries and increase the efficiency of workforces. All our cranes can also be used to lift from below ground level, further removing on the job safety hazards. The range comprises of lightweight SwingLift cranes, hydraulic PH cranes, hydraulic loading platforms and winches and hoists.
When mounted to a vehicle, lifts enable drivers to move heavy items on and off the vehicle easily, safely, and efficiently. So, no matter what the job is, you have the tools to get it done.
As well as offering standard specification VME, we also specialise in bespoke configurations, working with our customers to ensure they receive a solution that works best for them.
Our davits are lightweight portable cranes that can be set up to perform lifts where vehicles cannot reach. With a lifting capacity of up to 995kg they are the perfect solution for utilities companies.
Combining simplicity and proven durability our range of Swinglift cranes provide a safe, efficient, and cost-effective means of handling loads for all types of vehicle. SwingLift cranes weigh very little but have a max working load of up to 500kg – perfect for lifting pumps / generators on and off vans.Explore
Incorporating full hydraulic control ensures smooth and precise load handling with reduced risk of sudden and unexpected movements that can cause accidents. PH Cranes have a much higher max working load and can lift heavier items on and off flatbed trucks, trailers and 7.5 tonne vehicles.Explore
Unplanned downtime and keeping customers waiting is costly and bad for business. So, it is integral that your processes and solutions eliminate both.
The HSE states that 1 in 3 accidents at work are caused by manual handling. The introduction of a mechanical lifting aid can help to protect your staff and to reduce the risk of injury.
A crane or loading platform can reduce a two- or three-person task to a single-person task, saving money and allowing you to utilise your workforce more effectively.
It is the law to put sensible health and safety measures in place to prevent and avoid injury. Penny Hydraulics’ range of lifting equipment can help.
We’ve worked hard to keep the weight of our lifting solutions low to minimise the impact on remaining payload. Enabling the customer to lift and move a large amount of items from A to B. They’ve also been designed to be compact and have little impact on the overall footprint of the van leaving lots of workable space.
