Project of the Month*
Crane: LINK BELT 3140 (140 TON) with 45,000 Counterweight
Customer: Volkman Plumbing & Heating, Inc. @ Skyline Apartments, Norfolk
Project Overview: Removed 4,000 lb condenser from east side, set three water heaters on roof at 800 lbs each and one ac unit at 1200 lbs.
Weight: 7600 lbs total
Radius: 125 foot
Description: Extremely tough setup. Tight corners and a narrow parking lot made it tough to maneuver. A large tree on the north side of the parking lot increased the difficulty of the lift as navigation became acutely tight.

Crane used: Link-Belt RTC 8050
Load: Product Spouts
Weight: 200-500 lbs each
Rigging: 1 – 3/8” steel cable chocker

Customer: Rasmussen Mechanical
Crane used: Link-Belt HTC 8675
Load: Rooftop a/c unit
Weight: 800 lbs

Notes: This lift was achieved by lifting from the main boom at a very low angle. This allowed us to save time by not having to swing the jib out.
