Now you may have heard of “Tandem Lift” but this is a “Triple Lifting Operation”….
The problem was a 2000kg Steel Beam needed lifting up and fixing into position beneath a low level ceiling. The possibility of using a conventional Mobile Crane was dismissed by the fact that the only access would have been over the beautiful lawn.
One of the great design features of our Mini Cranes are that they are low weight bearing, and cause minimal disruption when tracking, and when rigged up in position.
We laid down some plastic Tracking Mats – (available for hire) and set the cranes loose toward the work area – for action!
we then set-up the cranes so that the larger crane – MAEDA MC305, had the heavier end with the furthest reach. And the supporting UNIC 295 at the other end of the steel. The UNIC 095 with it’s multi leg position facility allowed the small crane to get it’s legs within the support prop’s to take the centre of the beam, and it’s own proportion of the weight.
With all 3 cranes ready, the steel was hoisted slowly, and fixed in position – Much to the relieve of the main contractor and property owner. The cranes completed the lift with ease, and in a safe manner.
We then dissapeared from site as if we weren’t there, and the work is now progressing as normal.
I’m sure there are contractors facing tall orders like this, and we are here to help….
