leggat does the double with two terex® AC 40/2l all terrain cranes


Zweibrücken, October 6th, 2016 – With over 140 years of experience and history within the construction industry, specialising in contract lifting and movement, Leggat Plant Limited has established itself as one of the most trusted organisations to go to when looking for crane hire or contract lifting in the central belt of Scotland.

Located in Barrhead, south west of Glasgow, Leggat Plant Limited has built up a fleet of over 15 cranes, ranging from 25 t up to 130 t, and when it came time to renew two 40 t class cranes Leggat Plant looked no further than their prime supplier, Terex Cranes.

The first Terex® AC 40/2L was delivered in August, closely followed by the second one in September. With a maximum system length of 45.4 m, combined with a compact overall length of 10.79 m, the AC 40/2L is a flexible machine, perfectly suited to almost any type of small rental or contract lifting jobs.

‘We have a long working relationship with Terex Cranes and receive a high level of support from the UK based team’ explained Eddy Donaghy, Director, Leggat Plant Limited. He then adds: ‘We bought our first crane from Terex in the 1960’s, dating back to the former PPM era, and have purchased a number of cranes in recent years, including a Terex® AC 100/4L, Challenger 3160, Explorer 5500 and a AC 80-2, therefore when we required two new 40 t class machines, Terex Cranes was the obvious choice for this business’.
