Lifting & Utility

Ritespec Towlift Crane Trailer

The Ritespec Towlift 3000 is a 3 tonne metre hydraulic crane mounted on a 3500KG gross close-coupled four wheel Hiab trailer.

A flatbed trailer with crane is a multi-purpose piece of equipment suited for Plant Hire Fleets, Utilities / Highways, Railways and Facilities Management. Other applications for small trailer mounted cranes include Agricultural, Timber / Logging, Commercial and Private use.


The Hydraulic Crane Trailer Benefits

  • The hydraulic crane trailer equipment has a useful load capacity at a useful radius, 1 ton @ 3 metres.
  • The nose/drawbar weight is within the regulations in both laden and unladen conditions.
  • This Ritespec crane trailer has a slew rotation to enable full coverage of the lifting zone and trailer bed, so the trailer can be easily loaded from either side and the crane has a 420 degrees of rotation stop to stop.

    The Development Process of RITESPEC’s Small Trailer Mounted Cranes

    PCM introduced the Ritespec Towlift 3000 crane trailer in March 2023 to enhance the current Ritespec product range, as we have long considered that a 3.5 tonne flatbed trailer with crane would be of use to many businesses and applications.

    We have been running a product development programme for the last few years in order to bring something to the market which could deliver all the benefits of a hydraulic trailer crane combination, but that would also meet all current safety and legislative requirements.

    We also wanted it to out-perform other crane trailer equipment in this class currently available in the market. We feel that we have achieved this with the Ritespec Towlift 3000.

    The equipment has had to comply with all the current safety legislation for lifting equipment, plus some additional requirements (as advised by ALLMI) specifically for lorry loader cranes.

    Ritespec Towlift 3000 small trailer mounted cranes have all the equipment normally seen on far larger lorry loader cranes incorporated into the safety / stability system.

    Much development work has gone into the safety system and we are confident that it now represents, in our opinion, the most comprehensive trailer mounted crane safety system available for this type of equipment.

    The engine is an electric start “V” twin type of 22hp which is compliant with current emission regulations.
