Since Fassi is one of the most popular truck mounted crane brands in the UK we list all of the Fassi crane trucks for sale here, in one place. An Italian crane manufacturer, Fassi knuckle boom cranes are manufactured right across the weight capacity ranges, from the smallest light truck crane M10A with a reach of just 1.12 tonne metres to the mighty heavy duty truck crane- the F2150RAL xhe-dynamic which has a highest moment of 160 tonne metres and maximum outreach of 41.3 metres with a jib. To demonstrate the reliability of these cranes, the company claims that there are 70% of all Fassi cranes ever made still in full-time operation.
The company is no flash in the pan – Fassi has been manufacturing truck mounted cranes for over fifty years. Starting out in Italy, Fassi cranes could be bought across Europe by the early 1970s. The company believes in manufacturing their own parts as opposed to buying them in, This means that most Fassi cranes are 90% made in-house.
