Crane Specialist company based in Manheim, Pennsylvania, uses a Fassi hydraulic crane to reconstruct a piece of American historyManheim (USA) - In April 1865, the train carrying the body of President Abraham Lincoln passed through Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on a journey from Washington, D.C., to Lincoln's present burial site in Springfield, Illinois. This section of railroad was dismantled over the years, but in June 2018 the Stone Gables Estate company of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, decided to partially rebuild it by building railroad cars and buildings identical to the original ones. Crane Specialists in Manheim was involved in the construction of the buildings, with a fleet of various specific lifting equipment.
For this work in particular, a Fassi F1950RAL crane was chosen, fitted on a vehicle capable of working off-road without any risk of damage to the railway ballast. The Fassi F1950RAL crane has a horizontal reach of over 40 metres, and thanks to the articulation of the booms it is able to adapt perfectly, even in complex work areas where the working dimensions are reduced.
