Richard Lester Transport comes from a family of specialist haulage contractors dating back to the 1930’s. Operating out of their main depot in Chesterfield, with a fleet of over 25 vehicles & a wide range of chassis, they have grown to be one of the major specialist transport companies in the UK concentrating on the bespoke transporting of plant machinery and over-sized freight.
The company operates a fleet of light, medium and heavy duty FASSI cranes from an M25A.12 up to the F820RA.2.26. and recently purchased two new FASSI cranes, both F660RA.2.26 he-dynamics, from FASSI UK main dealer Central Crane Technicians in Chesterfield.
The power to weight ratio of the FASSI F660RA.2.26 he-dynamic has made it the UK’s best-selling crane in its class. With the FSC-SII stability system matched with ‘HS’ supplementary outriggers, the crane can work up to rated capacity with the outriggers extended by only 25%, safely controlled by the tilt sensor.
When Richard was asked why he chose FASSI cranes again he explains:
“ FASSI cranes are reliable and our drivers enjoy using them, they are smooth, simple and at the end of the day they are good lifters, enabling us to provide a fast, reliable, and efficient service to all our customers.”
