The first image in this gallery (courtesy of the Cargo Equipment Experts Network) shows a success story. It demonstrates what you can accomplish by putting the right equipment in the control of people with the right training. The situation, involving Crane Rental Corporation, illustrates the recovery of a customer’s Manitowoc 4600 dragline that had slipped off a bank below 70 feet of water. This was a team effort by a lift director, skilled riggers and certified crane operators controlling cranes to perform a coordinated tandem lift. The total weight lifted? About 484,000 pounds.
The video links that follow this image show situations with not-so-positive outcomes. In fact they demonstrate what happens without paying attention to detail and respect to training. We hope you'll advance all the way through this gallery so you'll end up back at its happy beginning.
