Anglemyer Crane Rental used a truck crane and a rough terrain crane to lift a renovated water bridge.
Anglemyer Crane Rental of Azusa, CA operated its 110 tonne hydraulic Link-Belt HTC-86110 truck crane and 275 tonne Link-Belt ATC-3275 rough-terrain crane to tandem lift a 155-foot, 60,000-liter Carry out crane. Pound renovated water bridge used to circulate water in a sediment pond for the industrial production of sand.
“It was a unique setup,” said Mike Norris, crane operator. “A temporary ramp was built for us to bring the HTC-86110 into the pond. Then we were set up along with the ATC-3275 so we could select the bridge and bring it into position. “
The reach of both cranes was important for the positioning of the bridge.
“The ATC-3275 had to travel about 15 feet farther than the HTC-86110, so we had it on a higher level on the bank,” added Norris.
The HTC-86110 was equipped with a 48,600 pound full counterweight to handle the end of the 60,000 pound bridge.
“We ended up having nearly 36,000 pounds and lifting and placing on the center pivot,” said Norris. “Every time we do a two-crane pick, we have two crews that we will use.”
“The HTC-86110 is new to us and as soon as it arrived in our garden, it went straight to work. We’ve put a little over 700 hours and 9,200 miles on it since we received it in April (2020). The HTC-86110 takes up a lot of space – slightly larger than our 40 tonnes – and is more maneuverable than anything else in the 200 tonne class we have, ”concluded Norris.
