Emerson Crane uses Grove AT to replace air exchanger

A new Grove GMK6300L-1 was used to lift and place a 5,600-pound air exchanger at a 230-foot radius.

Waterloo, Iowa-based Emerson Crane Rental,  completed a one-day air exchanger swap-out project in mid-April at a large food processing facility in Waterloo. The project, led by Cedar Rapids-based All Temp Refrigeration, contracted Emerson Crane Rental’s new Grove GMK6300L-1 all-terrain crane for the job.

The 5,600-pound air exchanger was lifted and moved to a radius of 230 feet using the 350-ton all-terrain crane.

“The Grove all-terrain crane performed flawlessly at a very long radius,” said John Emerson, owner, Emerson Crane Rental. “It remained very stable with the full boom telescoped. I’m proud of the team at Emerson Crane for their work on the air exchanger project. Their expertise and dedication ensured the job was completed with minimum disruption to the plant’s operation and within a tight timeframe.”

The Aspen Equipment Iowa service team and a Grove factory technician also provided essential training to Emerson Crane Rental on properly using the Grove GMK6300L-1.
