The Tapfheim-based company is now offering training in theory and practice

Aside from versatile assembly and lifting devices, Heavydrive GmbH is now offering the ideal flexible, custom and practical training. From April 2017, workshop manager Markus Striedl is the new official Heavydrive crane expert and holds training in theory and practice on the Tapfheim grounds.

Clients require a crane licence on the construction site because trained and examined operators perform more safely and efficiently. Costly damage can be avoided with a little expertise and experience. For years it has already been possible to book crane training with an external expert through Heavydrive GmbH. Now the company's own crane expert offers customers a range of advantages.

Gain practical experience with Heavydrive

Training can be booked for one to ten people per course, and at short notice. On the course, participants will receive intensive theory instruction and practical training. The wide range of Heavydrive cranes, assembly devices and suction systems offers participants diverse opportunities to get plenty of experience with the devices.

The duration of the course depends on the knowledge of the participants and the necessary training time. For beginner-level customers, the course normally lasts five working days. To receive a crane licence, at the end of the course the participants have to prove what they have learned in a test. If they pass the test, participants receive a certificate and a reference manual.



First crane training successfully completed

On 28 April 2017 Heavydrive crane expert, Markus Striedl, presented his first trainee, Jakob Flöckner, owner of Kraus glazing in Altötting, with a crane licence. The company had purchased an MRK 56.0 mini crawler crane with a VSG 600 K vacuum lifting device and gained some intensive experience with the systems during the course.


Training can now be booked with Heavydrive GmbH. For more information, individual enquiries and to book a place on a course, our employees are available by telephone on +49 9070 96 8 96 90 0 or by email at
