CranesY - 29. December 2013 - 12:59

IMT has enhanced its 2003i, 3203i, 4004i, 5005i, and 6006i electric telescopic crane models with design changes and new hydraulic power units.

IMT has enhanced its 2003i, 3203i, 4004i, 5005i, and 6006i electric telescopic crane models with design changes and new hydraulic power units.

According to IMT, the refinements include:
· Single-sheave boom tip design with a reduced profile for added reach in tight quarters
· Hydraulic power unit featuring a polyethylene reservoir that reduces weight and the potential for system contamination
· Updated pin design that improves the reliability of the pin retention system
· More compact tethered remote control that provides added ergonomic comfort in a lighter package.

IMT electric cranes are designed for lighter lifting applications in the construction, utility, public works, energy and railroad markets, as well as for equipment dealers and rental equipment providers. The lineup has a maximum horizontal reach ranging from 6 feet 6 inches to 22 feet and capacity ranging from 2,000 pounds to 6,000 pounds. All models are compatible with IMT Dominator mechanics trucks.

Ritchie Bros. Completes Final Auctions of 2013

CranesY - 29. December 2013 - 12:51

With Dec. 26 marking its last auctions in 2013, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers Inc. has released the results of its gross auction proceeds. In 2013 the company sold approximately $3.8 billion of equipment at 356 unreserved auctions around the world in 2013–a 3% decrease from gross auction proceeds in 2012. However, during the fourth quarter of the year, the gross auction proceeds totaled $1.1 billion, a record for the fourth quarter and an increase of 10% compared to the same quarter of 2012.

The company plans to release its full audited financial statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis for 2013 on March 4, 2014.

“We achieved some notable milestones during 2013,” said Peter Blake, CEO of Ritchie Bros. “In Canada, our most established market, we continued to grow and again surpassed gross auction proceeds of over $1 billion. We also held our first auctions in both China and Finland, and reached a new record for online bidders and buyers. In fact, our online bidders purchased more than $1.4 billion of equipment in 2013, or approximately 37% of our total sales. We’re pleased that our customers are finding convenience through our online bidding option, and comfort in the ability to test and inspect the equipment being sold in our yards before each auction. More than 43,000 consigners trusted us to sell their equipment at our industrial auctions during the year, and over 425,000 potential buyers registered to bid on items.”

Mr. Blake continued, “Having made important investments in our auction platform over the last several years, our worldwide network of 44 sites is now extremely well equipped to handle expanding auction volumes. Our focus going forward is on driving growth in gross auction proceeds to deliver the earnings leverage that exists in our model.”

Loader Crane Rips Out Power Lines

Crane Accidents - 28. December 2013 - 0:25
 Shelton, Washington

A slow moving train, equipped with a log loader crane, pulled out a large number of overhead power line poles as it traveled through the town of Shelton in Washington state on Thursday morning.

The destruction covered a two block area and left over 700 buildings without electricity, thankfully no one was injured, although the power lines and a pole did come down on a car trapping the driver for several hours

WHECO Richland: Manitowoc Cab Repair

Wheco Crane repair - 19. December 2013 - 17:27

IMG_2422One of WHECO’s customers had an incident where the cab on their crane was severely damaged on a project.  The cab was actually ripped from the superstructure causing damage not only to the cab but to all the wiring and hydraulic components that attached to the cab.

The lead time to order a new cab was such that they contacted WHECO for help.

The cab and superstructure were shipped to WHECO’s Richland facility where each part from the damaged cab was removed and assessed to determine whether it was suitable for reuse or if a new piece from the OEM should be ordered.  WHECO also custom made several wiring harnesses, some with over 30 plus wires.

In addition to the cab, there was structural damage to the lower structure that was repaired with the approval of Manitowoc.

WHECO Richland, WA – Liebherr HS 883 HD Crane

Wheco Crane repair - 18. December 2013 - 15:18

IMG_2063In the late fall of 2013, WHECO was approached by one of its good national customers about performing a SLEP (Service Life Extension Project) program to one of its duty cycle machines.

WHECO’s team took on the challenge and immediately set out to perform a site inspection of the machine.  From that inspection and several conversations with the customer, WHECO was able to jointly develop a custom Scope of Work tailored to the machine and the customer’s requirements.  When the initial SOW was agreed upon, the machine was shipped to WHECO’s Richland, Washington Crane Service Center where it is currently being dismantled.

Over the next several months, WHECO will detail the progress of this project as it moves through the many stages of receiving an extended and productive life in the industry.  Stay tuned and watch the progress.

UPDATE 2/3/2014

The crane has now been disassembled fully and repairs are in process.  Parts are being ordered based on the inspection and the machine will now start taking shape and begin to look like a crane once again.
