A Fassi F1950RA.2.28 he-dynamic knuckle boom crane lifts a 40,000 lbs girder on Canadian building site
Nisku (Canada) – On 17th May, the F1950RA.2.28 he-dynamic crane belonging to Encore Trucking & Transport Ltd., a transport and handling company based in Edmonton (Alberta), installed a double-girder overhead crane weighing 40,000 lbs (approximately 18.14 t). What makes this lift exceptional is that typically these girder cranes are installed piece by piece, but due to the Fassi crane’s considerable capacity, the girder crane was assembled on the ground and then the entire apparatus was installed with just one lift from the Fassi crane.
The operator found this method to be much more efficient and convenient. Since having taken delivery of the crane at the end of 2016, Encore have gotten more than satisfactory results from this equipment, executing a wide variety of different handling operations, including lifting propane tanks, transformers and electrical equipment, heavy construction equipment, as well as precast concrete pieces.
