I told you we had a huge response to our contest – here is the third and final instalment of our Cover Photo Contest entries.
We had an amazing response from Crane & Hoist Canada magazine readers for our 2022 Cover Photo contest to grace our Sept/Oct cover.
Enjoy part 3 of the submissions we received.
James Kampen, Leavitt Cranes
Where: The Leavitt Cranes yard
Project: We just received delivery of our new Jekko SPX1280. Our technicians are nothing if not thorough. They always read the manual first!
Model: Jekko SPX 1280
Claire Gjertsen, Kristian Electric Ltd.
Where: Edmonton, Alta.
Project: This project features the installation of overhead crane safety lights on a 5 Ton Overhead Bridge Crane. Crane safety lights alert workers in the area of the position of the overhead crane and are a low-cost method to prevent worker injury and equipment damage caused by suspended loads.
Model: KEL Crane Safety Light
Derek Rauch, Vertical Crane
Project: The demolition and removal of an outdated doppler radar station.
Model: Grove – TMS 9000E
Roland Noestler, Liebherr
Where: Toronto, Ont.
Project: A 130to Liebherr crawler crane is doing shaft excavation for a micro tunnel project in Toronto with the local company Ward and Burke.
Model: LR 1130.1
Steve Parr, Atlas Polar Company Ltd.
Project: Residential construction is booming! Everywhere you look, truck-mounted cranes are hard at work on job sites in urban and rural areas coast to-coast. Drywall is an integral load delivery for all of them.
Specialty truck-mounted cranes like this HIAB 265K-3 are purpose-designed for precise building materials delivery in tight spaces and perfectly suited for this picture-perfect garden setting.
Model: HIAB 265K-3
Where: Montreal, Que.
Project: This soaring image of a HIABHIAB XS 211EP-5 crane stationery mount was taken while renovation work was underway on the Saint-Sauveur Church, on the corner of Viger and Saint-Denis streets in Montreal.
The HIAB transformed the 1865 stone facings of this once proud church to become the face of the Centre Hospitalier de ‘Université de Montréal (CHUM).
Maneuvering a large crane surrounded by soaring towers and acres of glass, with pedestrians below, is an increasing sight in big city centres. Working storeys up on a historic building takes those challenges to new levels, requiring absolute precision and safety.
Model: HIABHIAB XS 211EP-5
