The SBL500 can be used for civil or commercial construction projects where traditional cranes cannot fit and overhead cranes are not an option, for instance at ports, railways, power and industrial plants, Engineered Rigging explained. 

The 500-tonne (454-tonne) capacity gantry features four legs with internal three-stage double-acting hydraulic cylinders, an octagonal boom design for added strength, a fixed boom, and self-propelled steel wheels for travel on skid tracks. Each lifting tower is also equipped with a counter balance valve, stroke sensor and pressure transducers for use with the Intelli-Lift wireless control system.

Technicians can remotely operate the lifting towers – either independently or as a group of two, three or four towers – wirelessly with the Intelli-Lift control system or, if site conditions dictate, via a control cable.

“The addition of another 500-ton hydraulic gantry, the Enerpac SBL500, to our rental fleet demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with heavy lifting solutions for their biggest jobs,” said Christopher E. Cox, founder and president of Engineered Rigging. “We expect bidding on large infrastructure projects to increase in 2024, and we stand ready to assist customers with equipment rentals.”

Earlier this year, Engineered Rigging added the SBL600 hydraulic gantry from Enerpac to its fleet. This unit features a lifting capacity of 674 tons (611.5 tonnes).
