Iron Fairy Mk6

Post #1 by tof73 » Mon Sep 07, 2015 2:25 pm

Hi all I ma new to the site soi thought i d say hi
i have just purchased an old Mk6 iron fairy that i ma picking up on saturday with a low loader, for a few lifting jobs i ma doing on our pub conversion.

I don't know much about them apart that it is a 6 ton crane, do anybody has a brochure or some specification for it,

The cabin is missing but all is working apart handbrake so got to look at this first. i would like to renovate it as well to it's former glory and put a cabin back on so it is original

Quite excited about it.

once i pick it up i will add a few photos if i manage to works this out.
Kind Regards,
Christophhe

Hi Chris and welcome :wave: you must be lifting big pints if you need an Iron Fairy behind the bar; must drink there sometime :lol: but seriously have a look on places like EBay for information etc. I must say I don't know what parts are like to get for these cranes but you could try somebody like Warwick Ward they may at least be able to point you in the right direction if they have no parts. :thumbup:

:wave: Hi, I can't believe this post popped up on Monday :D . I got home and spotted it just after extracting my new Iron Fairy 10 tonne from a steel fabricators in deepest Peckham! :mrgreen: This was no mean feat!, clutch seized, no steering, no brakes and hemmed in with timber and steel. Not to mention it was on the wrong side of a railway arch and we had to load it dodging the bus's! Cant wait to get her up to speed tho'! :thumbup:
