It’s here now. Our new 350 tonne all-terrain crane. Ready to go.And it’ll be a real weight off your mind. Why? Because now you can lift the heaviest loads with equal assurance of safety. First, some facts:
For Added Efficiency And Economy To You.
You may already have met Roger Farrington. If not, we’re pleased to introduce Roger as a recent addition to our team.
Either way, we believe you’ll notice the added experience, the extensive competence and high professionalism he brings to our operations.
As Operations Supervisor, Roger will often be your first point of contact for new crane projects and lifts. It makes good sense. Having been working with crane operations since the 70’s (we won’t say exactly when), there’s little in the business that he’s not fully familiar with.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment has just released the Health and safety leadership guide.
Today we have been featured in the Site Safe E-Alert for our win of the MSA Safety Leadership Award.

Interesting day today!
Our 170 Tonne passed a house over another house to our 130 Tonne crane which then placed the house on the back section. No easy feat, some outstanding engineering and lift planning by Pete McLeod with Ian Monk.
A great team effort with three cranes and many of our team onsite to ensure all went smoothly.
From cranes, through transport, storage, logistics and distribution, the future is intermodal capability and flexibility. That’s the insight of the Tauranga-based McLeod group.
Yes, say McLeod Cranes. And they’re writing national guidelines to make sure of it. When something goes wrong with a crane, it tends to go very wrong, very quickly. Simply, the margin between a near miss and a major accident is vanishingly brief. Suddenly, what seems a normal procedure can turn into a serious accident.
Know Your Crane Signals.
If you are working with or around cranes its important to know your crane signals. The most important being STOP.
The STOP signal can be given by anyone on site. In a crane operation safety is always of the highest priority. Crane operators are trained to accept a STOP signal from anyone whether they are part of the operation or not.
Merry Christmas from all the Team at McLeod!
We all wish you happy holidays and a fantastic New Year. We will be operating throughout this period and look forward to being of service.
Keep Safe, Drive Carefully and most importantly have a great break!
