Eqstra 600SA, a division of Eqstra Industrial Equipment (“EIE”), has delivered a truck mounted Fassi F110A.0.22 E- active knuckle-boom crane, equipped with an auger and RCH Radio Remote Control, Earth contact Plates, Spike and molded Foot pads, to KSN Electrical of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The Truck also features a custom built body to optimize productivity by facilitating easier and faster changing of auger bits and safe storage for the Auger Motor, while the truck, an Isuzu FTS 750 4×4 unit, is designed for sites with little or no road access.

Ordered in June 2015, the machine was delivered just three month later to the client in early September 2015.  The crane being a specialized version was ordered directly from Fassi Italy and installed at Eqstra 600SA Durban.

The Fassi F110A.0.22 E-Active , an 11 t/m crane, has a lifting capacity of 5280Kg’s  at 2 meter reach and 1,325 kg  at 7.9 m reach.  While strong yet lightweight the crane has a little impact on payload even when the crane boasts additional functions, such as the auger and Radio Remote controls, which make it a highly versatile machine suited to the wide range of contracting and electrical work KSN Electrical carries out throughout KwaZulu-Natal.


The machine features two sets of controls. These include a remote control, which is generally not supplied as standard by other OEMs on small cranes and which improves the operator’s safety and line of sight whilst controlling the auger. Addition to the Radio Remote control ,ground Controls on one side of the machine provide enhanced safety when opening and closing the crane.

“Eqstra 600SA has received a number of orders over the past two years from KSN Electrical, with such repeat contracts being testimony to the good relationship we have built with the client as well as the high standard of after sales service,” says Eqstra 600SA Managing Director Brendan Londt. “In addition to offering best-in-class brands such as the Fassi range, these are the essential ingredients in fulfilling our commitment to building partnerships for life with our customers.

“Equipping the crane with an auger for KSN Electrical , as well as the additional features added, is a further example of how Fassi, and Eqstra,  are committed to meeting its clients individual requirements by tailoring its machines for specific functions.”

The Fassi light-weight cranes combine reduced weight, compactness and limited dimensions, with the factors typical of Fassi quality, both in the structure and in the details. As a result, clients can enjoy the high quality standards of the Fassi crane, even on light-weight trucks that can be driven with a normal driving license.

Fassi cranes distributed by Eqstra 600SA range from light-duty 1/12 tonne and medium-duty 13/38 tonne units to heavy-duty (over 41 tonne) machines. Eqstra 600SA fully supports its client base over the complete product lifecyle, including maintenance contracts, operator and maintenance staff training and spares and aftermarket support.
