Heavy-duty crane used to replace line towers

Problem: Barcelona Equipment was hired to replace 115 kv transmission line towers with concrete poles that varied in length and weight. Some were as short as 120 feet weighing 45,000 pounds, with others up to 140 feet weighing 72,000 pounds. Cranes were frequently required to work in confined and hazardous lifting areas.

Solution: An ATF 220G-5 250-ton, all-terrain crane from Tadano America Corporation was used to smoothly and precisely lift and place the line tower poles.

Result: Despite the confined lifting space, the ATF 220G-5’s load chart was more than adequate for the job. Since the purchase of this ATF 220G-5, Barcelona has taken delivery of a second unit. 281/869-0030; www.tadanoamerica.com.
