Consolidated Crane Rigging Services for Crawler Cranes
In construction, crawler cranes are employed for a multitude of tasks, primarily centered around lifting and moving heavy materials and equipment. From hoisting steel beams and concrete panels to placing prefabricated components at great heights, crawler cranes play a crucial role in the erection of buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure projects. Their adaptability to diverse terrains makes them valuable assets for projects in urban areas, remote locations, or sites with challenging topography.
Crawler cranes are equipped with telescopic booms or lattice booms that allow them to reach incredible heights and cover large areas. The choice of boom depends on the specific requirements of the project Telescopic booms are favored for their flexibility and speed, while lattice booms offer more strength and stability for heavier loads and extended reach.
Operating crawler cranes requires specialized knowledge and skills due to the intricacies involved in lifting and placing heavy loads. Consolidated Crane adheres to strict guidelines and maintains our own crawler cranes to ensure the safety of everyone on the construction site.
Consolidated Crane understands every machine’s lifting capacity, from boom lengths and radii to load weight and ground conditions. Our operators follow these guidelines to avoid overloading the crane, which can lead to catastrophic failures.
Our crew monitors and maintains stable ground conditions for a level and firm ground to ensure stability during lifting operations. When the ground is soft or uneven, we employ additional measures such as cribbing or mats to provide a solid foundation.
Routine inspection and maintenance are integral to the safe and efficient operation of our crawler cranes. Regular checks of critical components (tracks, boom, hydraulic systems, and load-bearing structures) allow our crew to minimizes the risk of breakdowns during critical construction phases.
