600 Cranes celebrates Marrel 100th birthday

Marrel is celebrating its 100th birthday by introducing a new Ampliroll hooklift to the Australian market that has a lifting capacity of 26 tonnes and is available in two configurations.  

As original equipment manufacturer Marrel approaches its 100th birthday, Australian distributor 600 Cranes reflects on the company’s history. 

Founded in 1919, Marrel established its reputation by introducing the market’s first tipper body with jib and cable before developing the Ampliroll hooklift in 1969.

Since then, the company has continued to grow and innovate, becoming a global leader in industrial vehicle mounted equipment.

According to Lee Morley, National Sales Manager at 600 Cranes, the Marrel company has expanded significantly since joining the Fassi group. He says the product is the ideal fit for hooklift and truck-mounted crane operators.

“The Ampliroll design enables a wider range of handling possibilities and lifting modes which allows you to work faster,” he explains. 

The Ampliroll model was introduced in 1970, a year after Marrel developed its original dual-pivot hooklift.

 “This model has a unique free tilting frame that facilitates heavy duty lifting making the product more versatile and suited to a broad range of waste applications for heavy-duty applications,” Lee says.

“Everyone from general waste companies to specific recyclers will benefit from this heavy-duty product. 

“Marrel combines intelligent design with high-pressure hydraulics that make the product highly adaptable.” 

Lee says that 600 Cranes after-sales support is something that sets the company apart. 

“We offer a full service with sales, maintenance and inspections at workshops in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane and accredited agents in Adelaide and Tasmania.”

The new AL26 PA Si60 and AL26 SI60 have a range of hook height and container locking options.

With an optimised loading angle and free tilting frame, the AL26 PASi 60 can load bins of various lengths and operate under low roof height.

The product also features a number of safety features, with safety lock outs ensuring a safe working machine at all times.  

600 Cranes also offers a range of accessories such as front container locks, including sequential operation, fast speed unloading and adjustable hook heights.

As Marell’s 100th birthday nears, Lee says the new AL26 SI series highlights the company’s commitment to quality and service, values he says are shared by 600 Cranes.
