Contractors Embrace a More Profitable Way To Build.

We specialize in using Potain self-erecting tower cranes on our jobsites. With a smaller footprint, they can easily move around and provide a nice X:Y grid over the entire construction site. We’re not limited by where a forklift may be able to drive, the incline it can make or whether it can safely lift a load. Self-erecting tower cranes are a great tool to get around a jobsite, and as operators become more familiar, comfortable and confident behind the controls, then you’ll start seeing these cranes on every job.

Introducing the Potain Self-Erecting Tower Crane

Potain self-erecting tower cranes are changing the nature of residential homebuilding construction projects across North America. They reduce labor needs, do the jobs of several pieces of heavy equipment (like telehandlers and forklifts) and dramatically increase efficiency on the jobsite. Contractors are saving thousands of dollars and huge amounts of time by switching to self-erecting tower cranes.

With just one self-erecting crane, homebuilders are able to:
  • Lift masonry blocks right into place, rather than using a forklift
  • Attach a concrete bucket to enable up-and-over reach that can access an entire jobsite
  • Help set floor joists, eliminating manual labor costs and speeding up the process
  • Lift pre-fabricated wall sections from a truck directly to a wall location, with the extra ability to hold the walls in place for efficient installation
  • Hoist assembled roof trusses into place, cutting the need for a special lift
  • Move sheetrock and roofing materials directly to a roof’s location
  • Use a hopper attachment to move landscape materials to exactly where they are needed, including lifting up and over the home
Potain self-erecting cranes are easy to learn and operate.

Only one crew member is needed to operate the crane by remote control, and the operator is able to place loads exactly in place with increased visibility and operation.

Other construction site advantages include:

  • Quick setup and decommission. With the push of a button the crane erects itself. Hydraulic outriggers and integrated counterweights make the set-up a breeze.
  • A compact footprint that can be placed in tight working quarters with the benefit of no foundation and minimal ground preparation needed.
  • Reduces unnecessary trucking around the jobsite, as the crane’s reach can cover large sites, and no access roads need to be constructed.

Contractors are saving an average of $19,800 on single residential home building projects. Contractors are able to save money by reducing the number of laborers on the jobsite and eliminating the need for specialized equipment.
