    What has a capacity of 300 tonnes, a maximum width of 26 metres and can be had in sections between half a metre and six metres wide? A spreader beam of course!

    What could a spreader beam from Kennards Hire Lift & Shift do for you? It's a convenient way to spread out the lift capacity of your crane to move wide and over-length objects - including bridges! If you don't believe us - check out the video below!

    The modular spreader beam from Kennards Hire Lift & Shift can be assembled to any length, up to 26 metres - more than enough for the most demanding jobs. Whether you're moving girders for a roadway as in the video above or shifting large lengths of steel around the building site, these massive pieces of equipment will do the job nicely. Kennards Hire also has a range of diggers and excavators to help with your earthworks and site prep.

    They're available Australia-wide and because they can be broken down into small sections, they're super easy to get to site. If you've ever lifted a concrete pipe only to have it snap in the middle, you'll know exactly what a spreader beam does - it shares the load across a wider area so as to relieve the stress on the object being lifted.

    Now that you know what it does and where to get it from, all you need is to find a job that lets you hire this awesome piece of equipment!
