Buy or Rent the Hook
We have partnered with Saez Cranes out of Spain to be the exclusive distributor of their products in Washington State. We will be introducing their product line in 2017 with crane and forklift deliveries.
Saez has the widest and most unique crane line up I have ever seen. From the small bi-fold tower self-erectors to 620 meter ton luffing crane that could build a 100 story building as if it were lifting feathers, Saez has the solution. Need a luffing crane without the expense of renting and erecting a luffing crane? They have an 80 meter ton and a 110 meter ton hydraulic luffer. Air rights are no longer an issue.
Top Slewing Range
Saez builds flat top cranes that scale up to 80 Meters (267') of reach with line speeds up to 700 feet per minute. That's as large and fast as anyone. If you need a flat top crane, they make what you need. But what's also pretty exciting for our market is the S52. Configured with a 153' of boom, this top slewing crane can replace the self-erectors we currently use for less money as an entire package. That's 10 square feet of space needed versus 350. It gets you 26% more tip capacity. Call us and we'll explain how we can help you lift more for less money.
Saez makes three forklifts. Two of them are unlike anything else on the market. The SZ4017 is an 8800lb capacity forklift that reaches up to 56' compared to 43 feet for the rest of the 8000 lbs class. The reach on the out is 43 feet versus 28 feet for the class. The only thing that isn't bigger than the rest of the class is the price.
The SZ306 is going to replace the 5500 lbs segment. Need that small forklift for a tight site or the parking garage? Saez's 306 has all of the same specifications with 20% more capacity. 6600 lbs of compact muscle.
All of this with the Duetz motors, Dana gears and parts that are mostly off the shelf locally. We will stock anything that is Saez specific to ensure great reliability. Why would you pay more for a less capable telehandler?
Saez has been in the states with a couple of dealers for nearly a decade. As a manufacturer, they have been in operation for more than 50 years. Their service is second to none. Creative Lifting out of Denver needed a special jib configuration for a project in Kansas City. Saez built the jib, did the engineering for the load chart, counterweights, and reaction forces for an amount that was less than pricing I have seen for a hoist limit switch assembly for a Liebherr. The stories I have heard from owners around the world are full of praise. They are the manufacturer we all want to deal with.
Whenever you buy a product, our technicians will travel to Spain to get training specific to the product you purchase. We will understand the nuance of each product before it is delivered and stock the parts we need to service it. We are committed to supporting our product and customers and we have strong factory support standing with us.
Saez Tower Crane Brochures

Saez S52 - Great option over a self-erecting crane in many scenarios. Has 26% better tip capacity than the typical self-erector.
Flat top Range
TL-50 - Small top-slewing flat top. At 134 feet of jib it would be well suited to be an inexpensive option for tight locations. Runs Via remote control.
TL55 - Capable of having 181' of boom. This crane is perfect for most wood framed buildings if configured with 164' of boom. The towers are only 3.5 feet wide making this an option for elevators, stairwells, or even small notch outs. It would also lessen the costs associated with engineering openings in your building that need to be filled in later. This crane can also be ran via remote which could allow the operator to be the rigger as well.
TLs 60 - With a reach of 197' and a capacity of 17,600 lbs to 66 feet, this crane would be a very capable wood frame crane that could also lift out most small excavators saving mobilizing in a large truck crane to pull them out. I wouldn't recommend this crane for 2 yard concrete bucketing, but at over 340 feet per minute of line speed and a tip capacity of over 4000 lbs with 181' of boom, this crane would be a production workhorse.
TLS 65 - 213' of boom. Now we are getting into the concrete capable cranes. They can be configured in many different ways. With an 8 Metric Ton hoist that runs in 4 part operation to lessen the cost of the hoist motor, gearbox, and ropes, or set up with a 8 ton 2 part operation to save some complexity and get more line speed at 452 feet per minute compared to 340. Or, you can also configure it with a 10 ton hoist in the event you need that extra capacity.
TLS 70 - 230' of boom and 26.460 lbs of capacity. This would cover just about any job. But there are bigger options still.
TLS 75 - This 246' of boom crane with 32.400 lbs of line pull crane runs head to head with the 300 meter ton cranes in Seattle, but has the distinct advantage of 6,000 lbs more line pull. if you need that extra line pull, the Saez will be the option you want. The cost to erect will be virtually identical given the weights as well.
TLS 80 - Do you need to reach the end of the world? I think this 267' of reach crane might have you covered. And with 52,900 lbs of line pull, you'll struggle to find things you can't lift with this thing. This is 8800 lbs more than the typical 267' boomed cranes in town.
Typically a luffing crane is needed when a job site is near another obstacle such as a building. Another cause for their need is air rights which can be expensive and time consuming. Get a luffing crane up and you can mitigate the need to negotiate with the neighbor. Or you might need if for capacity reasons for some in tight picks where luffing cranes have the physical advantage. The downside is that they are more expensive to purchase or rent because you have another big motor, gear box, control panel, expensive rope, sheaves and so on. Saez has a great variety of Luffing cranes available. Two of them even solve some of the expense of a luffer problem by eliminating the motor with hydraulics!
SLH 80 - This small luffer can be used on wood framed projects. It's capable of reaching 45 meters or 148', but the capacity is limited for our construction methods in Seattle. If we configure it with 132' of boom, it can hoist 3300 lbs at that radius which is usable. To be able to get a luffer on a project that is light to erect and dismantle can literally be the difference between a project being feasible or not. It changes the scalablilty of a job and protects a developers return on investment.
SLH 110 - Coming soon. I suspect this will be the best luffing crane in town at 110 meter tons.
SL 170- Coming soon.
SL 240 - 26,000 lbs of line pull with 197' of boom. I saw this crane in person in Munich at Bauma last year. It's a beautiful set up. I have never seen a crane cab so large. Stainless steel electrical cabinets that are as well organized and frankly over-sized. The welds are perfect, the safety is complete, and this is a great option when you don't need a luffing crane that can hoist 50,000 lbs. To erect and dismantle this crane would be about the same cost as what it would cost to erect most of the large luffing cranes in town.
SL 320 - Another great workhorse. The 320 only adds 3300 lbs of line pull capacity. Where you really see the difference is in the tip capacity. With 197' of boom, the 320 shines with 7056 lbs of capacity versus the 5071 the 240 has. This may make the difference for panels and cores.
SL 450 - Now we are getting to the big boy luffers. This crane can reach 65 meters (197'). To compare it to the 320, at 197' it can hoist 13,200 lbs compared to the 7056. If the jib is configured to 164 or less, it can be set up to hoist a monstrous 52,900 lbs. When you need a big luffer, Saez has you covered. But this isn't even the end of the line.
SL 620 - 79,320 lbs of line pull. 213' of reach. It really doesn't get much bigger without commissioning a one off crane.
