RB Cranes were previously known as Ruston Bucyrus Ltd, then R-B International. Rustons made their first excavator in 1874. Ruston Bucyrus was formed in 1931 when Ruston & Hornsby, England merged with Bucyrus Eire, USA (who produced their first machine in 1881)! Since 1931, RB has built over 40,000 of these remarkable crawler cranes and excavators.
RB Cranes, as they are now known, where bought by Langley Holdings plc who own other world renowned crane companies. RB offer a range of advanced hydraulic machines for the construction markets whilst continuing to offer service and spare parts availability to virtually every machine ever built.
This pair of crawler cranes are in the Simon Cargo yard in Nth.Killingholme,N.E.Lincs.
