HalfPint Iveco Daily or Ute Crane: A Comparison for Your Next Small Crane Project in Tauranga


When choosing a small compact crane for your next project in Tauranga, it's essential to select the right equipment for your needs.


In this article, we'll compare the relatively new Ute 4x4 Crane to the higher capacity and more capable Iveco Daily 4x4 Crane to help you make an informed decision.


These two cranes work in the same market but are very different.


Ute 4x4 Crane Overview


The Ute 4x4 Crane is often equipped with a Quicklift® QL350-4 Compact Crane.


Its specifications include:


  • Maximum lift of 2 tonnes at 1.6 meters

  • 355 kg lift capacity at 6.7 meters

  • Single pivot point at 2 meters

  • Lower height, limiting its reach

  • Crane is a mid or front mount so further from the job

The Ute 4x4 Crane's single pivot point may result in the crane becoming boom bound (which means the boom can not reach over an obstacle), limiting its overall effectiveness for certain tasks.


HalfPint: Iveco Daily 4x4 Crane Overview


HalfPint: the Iveco Daily 4x4 Crane, on the other hand, uses a more powerful Fassi 50A crane.


Its specifications include:


  • 9.1-meter boom

  • Maximum lift of 2 tonnes at 2 meters

  • Lift capacity of 340 kg at 9.1 meters or 480 kg at 7.7 meters

  • Two knuckles for greater versatility

  • Crane is rear mounted so closer to the job

The Fassi 50A crane allows HalfPint the Iveco Daily 4x4 Crane to reach out at a height of 2.5 meters or go over objects at 4.5 meters using its second pivot point of knuckle, making it more versatile for various lifting tasks and less likely to become boom bound.


Cost Comparison


When it comes to hourly rates, the Iveco Daily 4x4 Crane offers better value. The Ute 4x4 Crane is typically hired between $135 and $145 per hour, while HalfPint the Iveco Daily 4x4 Crane is available at $120 per hour.


This price difference makes HalfPint the Iveco Daily 4x4 Crane a more cost-effective option for your project.
