Franna debuts Minemaster crane line

By Hannah Sundermeyer28 October 2021

Franna, a global manufacturer of pick and carry cranes, has unveiled the Franna Minemaster range, a series of pick and carry cranes with lift capacities ranging from 17 tons to 44 tons. These machines come fully equipped and ready to work in mining applications.

Franna cranes require no outriggers, which allows the operator to set up and start working almost immediately.

The Franna Minemaster range is designed to meet the rigorous safety requirements and complex operating environment of the modern day mine site. Each crane can be customized to meet local requirements, with a list of mine specification options available for customers to choose from, the company said.

“Franna has been supplying the global mining industry with robust lifting solutions for over 40 years, working alongside a number of leading contractors such as Rio Tinto, BHP & Glencore,” said Danny Black, general manager, Franna. “In line with our growing export sales, we have developed this range to meet the needs of the markets and industries we serve. Whilst mining has always been at the forefront of the Franna business, many of our international customers are not fully aware of the numerous mine specs that we can offer. As well as helping to educate the marketplace, our Franna Minemaster range provides mining contractors with heavy duty lifting solutions that are tailored to their needs and do not compromise on safety or performance.”
