We are pleased to announce the addition of two new cranes to our fleet! Bigfoot has just acquired two of Liebherr’s 81 K.1 Fast-Erect self-erecting tower cranes. These cranes have been carefully selected to meet the growing demand of the mid-rise building…
When Haebler Construction was assigned with the task of reconstructing the historic Garage Building on Water Street in the Gastown district of downtown Vancouver, Canada, they faced a unique challenge, in terms of extra tight working conditions.
The solution was a tower crane, namely the San Marco SMT 551 City Crane.
The SMT 551 was installed with a customized configuration and set up to operate with a short jib 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 configuration, 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.
To find out which San Marco crane is right for your next construction project, please contact our national sales office at 1-877-740-6950.
Note: The job in Vancouver’s Gastown was organized and executed by Eagle West Equipment, whose entire tower crane fleet was subsequently acquired by Bigfoot Crane Company.
