Crane Hire


Marlboro Crane Hire has an impressive fleet of over 120 cranes and will always provide the right lifting solution for the job.


All of our cranes are mobile and easily travel to site. They require very little or no setup time, depending on the job specifications and the size of crane. We have various mobile cranes on offer, with hydraulic cranes ranging from 7 tons to 500 tons, as well as an extensive range of crawler cranes ranging from 50 Tons to 1200 Tons. At Marlboro Crane Hire, we have a high standard of maintenance and strict quality standards to minimise downtime and maximise production. Crane specs and charts for all of our cranes are available on request. Depending on availability, we can hire out our cranes on day-to-day jobs or long term projects.

Rough Terrain Cranes

Marlboro Crane Hire’s rough terrain crane fleet ranges from 20 tons to 100 tons. As the name suggests, these cranes can handle very rough terrain and are 4 X 4 – 4 wheel drive and 4 wheel steer. They are very versatile and compact, manoeuvring into tight spaces. They are often contracted to a project for a lengthy period of time. These cranes need to be transported by a lowbed which we can arrange as part of our transport services, saving you time and money.

Truck Mounted Cranes

Our truck mounted crane fleet ranges from 7 tons to 60 tons. This type of crane is perfect for day to day jobs and they effortlessly travel to job sites. The site establishment is more affordable as they travel quickly.

All-Terrain Cranes

Our all-terrain crane fleet ranges from 35 tons to 500 tons making it a versatile mobile crane category. These cranes are essentially a hybrid between a mobile crane truck and a rough terrain crane. They have an all-wheel-drive steering suspension system and can easily travel on gravel, sand and smoothly on roads and manoeuvre into tight spaces. These cranes travel under their own power, except on cross border and long distances, where we would arrange abnormal transport services.


In the crawler crane category, we have cranes ranging from 50 tons to 1200 tons. This is the latest expansion of Marlboro Crane Hire’s fleet, giving us a very diverse offering. The advantage of a crawler crane, is that once established on site, it can crawl to the next lift with minimal dismantling and re-erecting costs. These cranes can move massive loads into tight spaces and then perform the lift. Autocad drawings and lifting studies ensure the correct configuration of the crane required for your lift. With a vast variety of configurations our team can optimise our equipment for your lift and save you costs.


Marlboro Crane Hire offers a wide range of cranes to meet your heavy lift requirements These cranes are large pieces of equipment that can lift or lower massive loads and reach extremely high heights. We offer site inspections to ensure that we provide you with the right crane for the load on any heavy lifting job. Our experienced team provide a turnkey solution incorporating rigging and transport services.


Our 450t – Liebherr LTM1450-8.1 is the only crane of its kind in South Africa, with an 85m boom and an additional 35m Fixed Fly. It has a total boom length of 120m. On full boom extension i.e. 85m this machine can lift 20t.


The 400t – Liebherr LTM1400-7.1 has a 60m boom with 84m Luffing Jib and 56m Fixed Fly.


During a site inspection, our skilled team will establish whether your lift requires rigging services. As part of our holistic approach, we can provide rigging services through our preferred partners on request. Marlboro Crane hire does also have limited rigging equipment and man-cages or baskets for hire.


Due to road restrictions in some provinces and countries, heavy machinery cannot travel by road. It must be professionally transported to minimise damage to both infrastructure and machine. Marlboro Crane Hire’s expert team can incorporate transport as part of the crane hire service and can handle these logistics for you. Our transport fleet includes a 5-ton crane truck with a 6-metre deck, tri-axle flat deck semi-trucks and low beds ranging from 25 to 100 tons.
