Project Lifting Heavy Equipment Into Place


The Problem

A specialist firm required a large piece of truck mounted equipment lifting into place at height. Traditionally this involves the use of a large lorry mounted crane which is not cost effective for a relatively simple lift.

The Solution

One of Wobeck’s suitable small tracked cranes was selected for the job that could lift the equipment into place without the need for bringing in an expensive large lorry mounted crane. The equipment was lifted back into situ and the machine restored to working order.

We had a borehole installation in a difficult position across uneven, wet, boggy ground and the pump needed removal so that a new pump could be installed. We could get a normal crane but it would have to be extremely large due to site restrictions, meaning a significant cost. The guys at Wobeck and their crane were fantastic. The crane tracked across the ground without a problem and carried out the work a good deal more cost effectively than would have been the case with a bigger lorry mounted alternative.
