Super Heavy Lift Cranes
"The Big Boys" of lifting!
These cranes arose from the need to gain greater
efficiencies by moving and lifting equipment that is
manufactured and pre-assembled in bigger pieces
("modular configuration") to reduce jobsite final assembly
time and significantly reducing the number of lifts
required  needed to place equipment during construction.
