Based in Melbourne, the leading crane rental company boasts more-than 30 years of industry experience, and counts more than 70 Raimondi models within its fleet. Spread around a variety of different jobsites in the southeastern Australia, Clark has seen its machines on numerous residential complex jobsites.

“Due to the increase in multistorey residential developments across Australia, we decided to expand our fleet with a new Raimondi LR273. The highly performing 18t-machine – jib clocking in at 60 meters and tip load of 2.9t – can be installed in two different types of towers, GR6L and GR5H, without using a transfer mast,” said Clark. He explained that the crane is notable in terms of versatility of configurations, with I fall allowing for an increase in lifting speed.  

“We were pleased to attend Bauma and reconnect with the Raimondi team in person this year. It was certainly worthwhile to see the company’s new products and learn more about Class 110 series and Class 150 series. We are looking forward to more Raimondis hitting the Australian skyline in 2023.” Clark added.

With delivery taking place by the close of Q4, crane operators will gain firsthand experience with the new functionalities of the new Raimondi Lumina crane cab, fitted on the LR273.

“Raimondi is pleased to bolster our partnership with Clark Cranes with this latest sale, and we are excited to see the LR273, featuring Lumina, at work on an upcoming Australian jobsite,” Badin concluded.
