Distinguished Historical Accomplishments
Franna cranes have dominated the Australian market.
As the ultimate “taxi” crane, Frannas are versatile and multipurpose allowing use in workshops, plant sites, mines.
Franna has developed a special Drag Line maintenance version of the cranes in conjunction with Australian Coal Industry to maintain large equipment (replace drills, bucket teeth, ropes, pins, wheel motors, work in wash plants, equipment breakdowns, and tight areas).
