Mountain Crane - Reach Higher
This month we are excited to give away a Lego Technic Crane 42009. Drive this 2,606-piece behemoth of a model into position with the cool 8-wheel steering and rotate the superstructure. Then activate the included LEGO Power Functions motor to extend the outriggers, lower the feet and extend or raise the crane arm up to 77cm into the air. Lower the hook with the working winch and get ready to lift the load! This authentic 2-in-1 model also features 10 wheels, 5 axles and a detailed V8 motor with moving pistons. Rebuilds into a container stacker and truck featuring Power Functions motor-powered extending and raising boom. This is the perfect gift for any crane or Lego enthusiast. Don’t miss out.
MHT recently completed work in Tehachapi, California replacing a control building at an elevation over 8,000 ft. The job involved hairpin turns with steep drop o s. A Caterpillar D8 dozer was used in some locations for push assist due to poor road conditions. The road was much too narrow for a typical tractor trailer combo, which made MHT’s Goldhofer modular trailer a perfect tool for the job. Kudos to the MHT team for executing a safe and successful maneuver at high altitudes and reinforcing the “Reach Higher” mentality!
We Vote Tilt-Up’s!
We are grateful that Mountain Crane’s tilt-up operational team’s vast experience and large feet of cranes continues to make Mountain Crane the provider of choice for tilt-up concrete construction in the region. THANK YOU!!
Placing Pontoon Boats
Mountain Crane recently participated in a fun and unique event. In August, the Utah Olympic Park hosted the Psicobloc, a solo rock climbing competition held over their pool. As a perk for VIP guests, the Olympic Park wanted to provide exclusive seating for the event. Mountain Crane was asked to set 3 pontoon boats into the pool, each weighing about 8,000 pounds. Because of the limited space and delicacy of the surrounding area, extreme caution had to be taken. Additionally, because the event was ongoing, there was a limited time frame to place the boats. Mountain Crane arrived on site at 4pm on Friday afternoon, with the event starting at 6pm that same day. After the event ended, Mountain Crane had to return to the site to remove the 3 boats before 8am Saturday morning.
