Brussels (Belgium) – Once again, the company MB Transports & Manutention S.A. has participated in the annual decoration of the city of Brussels by using one of its several Fassi cranes to erect the large Christmas tree in the Grand-Place. The tree is typically 22 metres tall and is transported by MB Transports on the morning of felling from the sustainable forest of Hertogenwald and is illuminated every year in the beautiful European square towards the end of November through to January.

On this occasion, the crane used to lift the tree was a Fassi F660RA.2.26 xhe-dynamic with an L426 jib, a popular model with a maximum lifting capacity of 56.27 tm and a hydraulic reach of 28.35 m. (Courtesy ©Belga/Eric Lalmand).
