STORAGE ON SITE
The latest addition to Southampton based Storage on Site’s fleet is the FASSI F485RA.2.25 xe-dynamic.We fitted the crane to a DAF 3 axle rigid chassis. SOS now have eight FASSI F485RA’s & a F710RA on their fleet, all supplied by us.
The FASSI F485RA belongs to the xe-dynamic range & maximises the performance potential granted by the HD5 design class.The performance increase achieved is indeed remarkable: the F485RA has a maximum lifting capacity of 48.42tm which is 9% more than the F455RA.2.22. This increased performance is achieved with no increase in weight over the F455A / F455RA & with a price difference of less than 5%.
“Storage on Site has invested heavily over the last two years in new vehicles to keep pace with its expansion in the container, cabin hire and sales sector. Wanting to move to a sole supplier for both cranes and vehicles, FASSI cranes were selected for their performance and weight savings compared to other competitors products, and because of their excellent manufacturer back up.
Having progressed from a mixed fleet, fitted with a variety of older cranes with a range of varying capabilities, Storage on Site recognised the advantages of a homologated fleet, in terms of vehicle / crane performance and also driver familiarity when swapping between vehicles.
As a family run business in an industry dominated by multi-national companies we have to optimise vehicle utilisation to ensure that we remain competitive, and these vehicles allow us to do just that.
We went to FASSI with a outline of what we wanted and in conjunction with Avon Cranes in Bristol we have got exactly what we wanted from these vehicles. Having now established the design to our own specifications we now have a product that we know will work straight out of the box, every time. “
