About Rev Cranes

REV Cranes, a company formed by Robert (Bob) E Vane in 2001, is run in strict adherence to the company's mission statement. Bob is believer in old-fashioned business scruples and integrity and has many years of experience in the construction and mining industry.

Employing experienced and well trained operators, REV Cranes prides itself on being experts in our cranes and getting your job done safely and efficiently.

With a long history of safe practices and an ever-improving risk management system, REV Cranes provides a professional service that you won’t have to worry about.

Providing solutions for a wide client base, we make sure we put the right equipment and the right people on the job. Next time you need something lifted or shifted, consider the local professionals for your cranage needs.


REV Cranes has a policy of only purchasing new cranes to provide the safest and most efficient machinery to do the job. With a range of 15, 20 and 25 tonne Franna cranes, we can provide lift and carry services to a wide range of clients and tasks.

The more recent addition to the fleet is the brand new Demag 40T slew which has added a new dimension to REV Cranes’ service. Most recently, the acquisition of a new 45’ Boom lift and Tilt-tray adds versatility to REV Cranes and allows us to be the only people you need to call for a wider range of jobs. Through strategic alliances with other local crane operators, REV Cranes can also provide a wide range of heavy cranes if required.

REV Cranes can provide short, medium or long term arrangements for wet (with operator), or dry (without operator) hire.


Your people are your number one asset on site and that’s true for ours as well. Safety is a top priority, and we make sure we can do our job safely. With experience and knowledge comes the know-how to do the work without injury or incident.

With a number of major clients happy with our work, we are also familiar with a number of safety requirements across construction and mining sites.


Commencing in 2001, REV Cranes began as a single Franna crane venture providing services to the Townville area. Growing on the back of excellent service and strong business plans the company has grown into a multi-milllion dollar enterprise, boasting a fleet of new Franna cranes, a slew crane, boom-lift and tilt-tray truck.

Employing experienced operators, REV Cranes has an excellent safety history.

We pride ourselves on being experts with our cranes and getting the job done quickly while maintaining a high level of safety.

Rev Cranes service the greater Townsville area (including Ayr, Home Hill & Charters Towers) and areas throughout North Queensland.
