A Fassi F820RA.2.26 xhe-dynamic loader crane lifts Spitfire wings in preparation for the RAF Fairford’s 100th anniversary celebrations in Gloucestershire

Fairford (UK) - Last week, Fassi UK customer Allens (Stourbridge) Transport LTD spent an afternoon working at RAF Fairford (a Royal Air Force base in Gloucestershire) with a Fassi F820RA.2.26 xhe-dynamic loader crane, mounted on a Scania truck. The crane lifted the wings onto a Spitfire plane for a display that was part of the RAF’s 100th anniversary celebrations, demonstrating its millimetre precision control.
The speed control functions of the FX900 system and Scanreco RCS radio remote control give Fassi cranes the edge for delicate high-precision operations such as this. This model is capable of performances which include a maximum lifting capacity of 71.36 tm and a maximum hydraulic outreach of 16.4 m. It was originally supplied by one of the most important Fassi UK dealers The Crane Centre in Sandbach.
