Rocket Crane Service Lifts 130,000-lb. Steel Shear With Link-Belt Crane

Rocket Crane Lifts 130,000 Pound Shear
Rocket Crane Lifts 130,000 Pound Shear

In 1945 Perry B. Hanson started his Minneapolis, Minnesota crane company with an H-3 Bucyrus-Erie Co. crane with clam shell attachments to dig and set underground storage tanks. Nearly 70 years later, Hanson’s Rocket Crane Service, Inc. has several new Link-Belt crane models, including an ATC-3275 all-terrain crane the company purchased in early 2013 just before Mr. Hanson retired after nearly 70 years in the crane business. Today the company is run by his two sons, Paul and Pat.

“Even though we got it primarily for the 275-ton capacity, the 3275 can also be rented at a lower capacity 165-ton, 200-ton, or even a 250-ton crane. We did not have that capability before,” explains Pat Hanson. Recently at Northern Metals Recycling Company, Hanson put to work the ATC-3275 by relocating a 140,000 lb. (58 967.0 kg) Metso Lindemann LS600 steel shear from its temporary location to a new stationary site at the recycling facility. The 3275 allowed for a change in the original plans (a tandem lift using two cranes and a transport truck) since space at the recycling facility was limited. According to Paul Hanson, “It’s tough to work with multiple pieces of equipment in a smaller space. One crane capable of the lift is better in a confined area, and eliminates a tricky tandem lift that would have to be done several times to get the shear to its final destination.”

Liebherr Unveils New 500-tonne LR 1500 Crawler Crane

The new Liebherr LR 1500 crawler crane delivers the load capacity of a 500-tonne model with the dimensions and weights of a 400-tonne crane.
The new Liebherr LR 1500 crawler crane delivers the load capacity of a 500-tonne model with the dimensions and weights of a 400-tonne crane.

Liebherr has unveiled the LR 1500 with maximum load capacity of 500 tonnes at 2015 customer days. The completely newly developed crawler crane delivers the load capacities of the 500-tonne crawler crane class throughout its complete operating range, whilst upholding the dimensions and component weights, which have previously been standard in the 400-tonne class. With a transport weight of just 45 tonnes, it can be transported around the world without restrictions. The overall concept of the new crane is designed for simplicity in all areas and great economy.

Compact dimensions and low cost worldwide transport were the main criteria for the design of the new Liebherr LR 1500. Ultimately the company managed to develop a crawler crane which delivers the load capacities of a 500-tonne model over its entire working range whilst retaining the benefits of the compactness and transportability of 400-tonne class crawler cranes.

The Future of Container Handling

Volvo Penta has been a supplier to Kalmar Reachstackers, a division of Cargotec, for 30 years, and the companies have done extensive product development together — including the ultra-efficient new driveline for the latest 45-ton-capacity Gloria reachstacker.

Kalmar and Volvo Penta worked together with Dana Rexroth Transmission Systems for two years on the project and, using a combination of hydrostatic and mechanical drives — both proven technologies — came up with an efficient new transmission that is said to be a first in the industry. The Kalmar K-Motion drivetrain can reduce fuel consumption by 40% and, with lower rpm and maximum revs, lower noise by up to six decibels.

Extreme lift requires Xtreme machine

Xtreme Manufacturing showcased North America’s largest rough terrain telehandler at the World of Concrete 2015 exhibition in Las Vegas this past February. The Xtreme XR7038 on display had already been purchased by Bigge Crane.

Following the show, Bigge Crane kindly loaned the machine to assist EC Source, a customer of Ahern Rentals, who was working close to the Xtreme Manufacturing facility at the time. EC Source was installing new power poles for Project Neon, the Nevada Department of Transportation’s major “design-build” project that will widen Interstate 15 from Sahara Avenue to the intersection of Interstate 15, U.S. Route 95, Interstate 515 and Martin Luther King Blvd. (“The Spaghetti Bowl” freeway interchange). The project is expected to cost $1.5 billion and should be completed by 2019.

Major utility contractor selects Liebherr cranes for megaprojects

Valard Construction, one of Canada’s largest utility contractors, counts on Liebherr cranes for megaprojects across Canada. For two major transmission projects in Newfoundland and Labrador, Valard is using a pair of new LTM 1130-5.1 Liebherr cranes, both equipped with cold weather kits.

Valard Construction LP, headquartered in Edmonton, is using the cranes to erect electrical transmission towers on the Muskrat Falls AC project. They are also installing two separate and parallel 315-kilovolt alternating current (AC) transmission lines, each 250 kilometres in length, for a total of 500 kilometres. The two transmission lines will connect Nalcor Energy’s 824-megawatt (MW) Muskrat Falls hydroelectric generating facility, currently under construction, with an existing 5,428MW hydroelectric facility and electricity infrastructure in Churchill Falls.

TADANO Breaking New Ground with an 8-axle Without a Boom Suspension System

Tadano Faun GmbH president Alexander Knecht and TFG project manager Andreas Hoffmann
Tadano Faun GmbH president Alexander Knecht and TFG project manager Andreas Hoffmann

A new, large All-Terrain crane with the revolutionary Triple-Boom System embodies the transformative process that TADANO is continuing in 2015. The new 8-axle in proven TADANO quality is the first large All-Terrain crane without a boom suspension system.

Reliability through avoidance of highly complex technologies – this is how Project Manager Andreas Hoffmann describes the approach for the development of the new Triple-Boom System. Conventional boom suspensions have always been complex and expensive in logistics, rigging, and operation. This is why Andreas Hofmann and his development team made a concerted effort to change their perspective and think outside the box. This was a challenge for him and his engineers that kept everyone thinking, even during off hours. Finally, the concept was clear: In order to relieve the customers of the disadvantages of a traditional boom suspension system, there was only one answer: discard it completely. The result is called the Triple-Boom System, a completely new kind of telescoping boom that requires no boom suspension system because of its very high stiffness.
