MV Commercial supplies specialist crane truck to Phelan Haulage

Phelan Haulage has expanded its operations with a DAF XG 530 tractor unit mounted on a HIAB X-HIPRO 858 EP-6 crane from MV Commercial, which its director describes as "an absolute monster." With a four-tonne lifting capacity at a full reach of 16 metres, the new crane truck has allowed the Durham firm to increase its heavy load operation in the North East of England and Scotland. Most of its work involves transporting abnormal loads, such as telecom poles, and moving shipping containers for use at corporate events.

It also works for a company that stages escape room interactive games at various sites. Phelan Haulage Director Peter Phelan says: "It's a very impressive bit of kit, and the crane is an absolute monster - lifting that weight at that reach safely is exceptional. "This unit has allowed our business to undertake jobs that require heavier lifts, improving our reputation as a high reach and high load HIAB crane truck specialist."

This is the first DAF XG unit off MV Commercial's production line, showcasing the company's expansion in build offerings by introducing the new generation of DAF chassis options. 

"The latest lineup of DAF XG crane trucks looks incredible and offers remarkable fuel economy, safety, and great driver features.

Paired with our diverse range of crane and ancillary fitting options, these trucks are already experiencing significant demand," says Steven Cairns, Managing Director of MV Commercial.
