Partnering with MAX

  • Just wanted to drop you a line to say how I was impressed by the 3 guys you had working the Tadano 130 the other week. They had a good grasp on our systems and understood what was important. Their base knowledge of our systems was really good for people that haven’t been to the site for a long time.


    Adam Culf Olympic Dam / Mine Engineering
  • Thank you for the incredible service Max Cranes provided to our projects. Clayton and Pete are fantastic to work with and we really appreciate their professionalism and the depth of experience they brought to work. We experienced a few challenges and they worked through them easily.

  • Firstly let me say that both Markham & Tim were very professional, courteous & forthcoming with information and knowledge. Both cranes are a credit to the operators and your company – immaculately presented inside & out and with easily accessible supporting documentation. It is pleasing to experience the high level of professionalism that you and your company are delivering.
