Lifting Gear Hire Debuts 700 Ton Modular Spreader Beam
Bridgeview, IL (December 16, 2009) — Lifting Gear Hire Corporation, the nation’s largest single organization devoted exclusively to the rental, sale and service of lifting, winching and material handling equipment, is proud to announce the addition of the 700 ton modular system into its rental inventory.
This system gives LGH customers the ability to lift as much as 700 tons up to 75 feet and to reach out to 443 tons at 100 feet unsupported. This means that long lifts, such as those typically found on bridge jobs and various trusses, can now be done with single cranes instead of multiple cranes.
“And with it being modular, it gives us the extra advantage of being able to ship anywhere on standard flatbeds,” adds David McKenzie, LGH Houston Customer Service Manager, “that means no permits, no escorts — and for customers, no worries.”
