Bigge's Xtreme XR7038 onsite in Nevada.

After purchasing one of Xtreme Manufacturing's XR7038 telehandlers, Bigge Crane loaned the unit out to EC Source for a recent job.

EC Source, an Ahern Rentals customer, was installing new power poles for Project Neon, the Nevada Department of Transportation’s major “design-build” project that will widen Interstate 15. The project is expected to cost $1.5 billion and should be completed by 2019.
The Xtreme XR7038,which can lift up to 70,000 pounds, was required to lift one of the largest power pole sections that weighed in at 53,000 pounds. The pole exceeded the lifting capabilities of other equipment on site that day.

Bigge Crane is a North American heavy lift and specialized transportation provider who also deals new and used cranes. Bigge has 20 Xtreme machines in its fleet.
