USA, Florida: Crane Rental Corporation has safely completed heavy transformer hauling projects around the United States.
In the Southeast US, Crane Rental Corporation moved a 108-tonne power transformer, fully assembled with radiators and other components, from its pad onto a six-line self-propelled Goldhofer trailer and transported it to a containment area. They then offloaded a new 85,000 kg transformer from a rail spur, transported it on a six-line Goldhofer trailer, and set the load in place using their 544-tonne capacity Terex AC500-2 hydraulic truck crane.
Also in the Southeast, Crane Rental Corporation removed a transformer that weighed more than 136 tonnes from its foundation. The transformer was hoisted by Crane Rental Corporation’s 635-tonne capacity gantry system and transversed onto an 18-axle self-propelled Goldhofer trailer to be transported to a holding area. The site had tight clearances and underground utilities, requiring the multi-axle trailer and Dura-Base mat system to mitigate ground bearing pressures during the hauling operation.
