Crane quartet in highway performance

February 5 - Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental has used four Manitowoc 2250 crawler cranes in the assembly of several new overpass bridges, as part of a USD61 million highway project in Wisconsin, USA.

Dawes says that it chose the fleet of Manitowoc crawler cranes for this project due to their reach and capacities. Moreover, said Scott Jerome, senior branch manager at Dawes, some of the lifts required all four cranes to work in unison to raise some of the heavier loads.

"The 300-tonne capacity cranes were just what we needed for the large pick weights associated with many of the lifts, especially the prefabricated tub girder structures that weighed up to 120 tonnes," Jerome went on.

Dawes explained that the cranes' 330 ft (100 m) main booms were crucial to the lifts, which involved raising loads above and across several traffic lanes and other road construction equipment, in order to carefully position them on concrete support piers.

Operating in the Midwest since 1948, Dawes is an ALL Erection & Crane Rental company, which is headquartered in Independence, Ohio.
