Anglemyer completes two-crane lift

By Hannah Sundermeyer07 April 2021

Anglemyer Crane Rental utilized a truck crane and all-terrain crane to lift a refurbished water bridge.

Anglemyer Crane Rental of Azusa, CA, operated their 110-ton Link-Belt HTC-86110 hydraulic truck crane and 275-ton Link-Belt ATC-3275 all-terrain crane to perform a tandem lift of a 155-foot long, 60,000-pound refurbished water bridge used to circulate water in a sediment pond for the industrial production of sand.

The HTC-86110 was equipped with full counterweight – 48,600 pounds – to handle its end of the 60,000-pound bridge.

“It was a little bit of a unique setup,” said Mike Norris, crane operator. “A temporary ramp was built for us to get the HTC-86110 down into the pond. Then we were set up along with the ATC-3275 so we could pick the bridge and set it into place.”

Reach for both cranes was important for positioning the bridge.

“The ATC-3275 had to pick about 15 feet further than the HTC-86110, so we had it on higher ground on the bank,” added Norris.

The HTC-86110 was equipped with full counterweight – 48,600 pounds – to handle its end of the 60,000-pound bridge.

“On our end, we had close to 36,000 pounds and lifted and placed on the center rotating joint,” said Norris. “Any time we do a two-crane pick, we have two crews we will put on the job.”

“The HTC-86110 is new to us and as soon as it got to our yard, it went straight to work. We’ve put a little over 700 hours on it and 9,200 miles on it since we received it in April (2020). The HTC-86110 keeps a tight footprint – a little bigger than our 40-tons – and more maneuverable than anything in the 200-ton class that we have,” concluded Norris.
