It was a lovely and calm morning for this big lift. The pool had to go 46m over the house in Gisborne and required full counterweight and fly.
Our 55t Liebherr and 60t Demag relocated a 35tonne Scraper from Sunbury to Lancefield. The Terex is being restored to its former glory.
Our 40t All Terrain Demag crane is great for general hire. Quick to setup, compact and has a great load chart. Here it is assembling a cooling tower at a Castlemaine Factory.
Jet engine maintenance is precise work. Each engine is worth $4 million and weights 2.5t. Replacement needs to be undertaken with skilled riggers, operators and engineers. The aircraft was back in the air after 2 days. Jetstar's A320 is just behind the Franna crane.
It's not often you spend the day in a crane on the runway at Tullamarine Airport. We were at Melbourne Airport to help lift a roof which was directly under the flight path. Permits were obtained and a maximum height of 30m was allowed, to help in lifting the shed roof and columns into their footings.
When we told folks we were at Crown Casion at 4am, we wondered why the raised eyebrows. What they didn't know was we were on site at 4am due to traffic restrictions, not on the Blackjack tables, ready to "lift a lift". We installed a new lift shaft as part of the on going constructions.
