Tools to get the job done.

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.

Benefits of Lifting Equipment

Productivity

Increased Efficiency

Unplanned downtime and keeping customers waiting is costly and bad for business. So, it is integral that your processes and solutions eliminate both.

Injury

Improved Health & Safety

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.

Save Manpower

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.

Adhere to Legislation

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.

Lightweigh

Low impact on payload / footprint of vehicle

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.

Severn Trent Tap into Penny Hydraulics Range of SwingLifts to Help to Improve Their Workflow

Our partnership with Bott allows us to provide lifting solutions to customers with large fleets such as Severn Trent. We’re really pleased that Severn Trent have come back to us once again for the ML500 as a lifting solution – it proves that it is the correct solution for their application.
