When Haebler Construction needed a crane to deal with extra tight working conditions during their reconstruction of the historic “Garage Building” in the Gastown district of downtown Vancouver Canada it was Eagle West Equipment Inc. (acquired by Bigfoot Crane Company) to the rescue.
Eagle West organized and executed a set of well planned lifts to rig the San Marco SMT 551 city crane components into place.
The SMT 551 was installed with a customized configururation and set up to operate with a short jib configuration of just 36 meters (118′) down from the standard 55 meters (180′) and from a mobile base with a footprint of just a 14′ 9″ X 14′ 9″. In this configuratiuon the SMT 551 can hoist loads as heavy as 8,000 kg (17,636 lb) at the mast and can lift 2,100 kg (4,630 lb) at the jib tip.
