Unique knuckle boom moves in
05 May 2011
Encore Trucking, based in western Canada, has highlighted its specialist capabilities with a unique knuckle boom jib, named the 'Fish Stick'.
Here the custom-painted jib is attached to a 40 tonne metre rated Fassi loader crane. It was a tandem lift to place a 16,000 pound (7.3 tonne) engine 25 feet (7.6 m) inside a gas compressor station in Alberta, Canada.
Don Lucas, Encore Trucking manager, explains how a grade 80 lifting chain was used to swing the engine around until it was correctly lined up with the open end of the compressor.
