Project Hot Tub Installation


The Problem

A private home owner contacted Wobeck Crane Services for help with a new hot tub installation. The hot tub needed to be installed on the balcony of their home to enjoy on pleasant summer evenings. However, it’s cumbersome size and shape meant it couldn’t be manually lifted and the location of the balcony meant that a conventional crane would have damaged the garden.

The Solution

One of our spider cranes was selected for the project. It tracked over the garden area without damage, deployed its outriggers on specialist pads and was still strong enough to pick up and lift the hot tub into position. We hope the owner enjoys their new hot tub!

We had a borehole installation in a difficult position across uneven, wet, boggy ground and the pump needed removal so that a new pump could be installed. We could get a normal crane but it would have to be extremely large due to site restrictions, meaning a significant cost. The guys at Wobeck and their crane were fantastic. The crane tracked across the ground without a problem and carried out the work a good deal more cost effectively than would have been the case with a bigger lorry mounted alternative.
