Falcon Equipment brings the longest vertical reach hiab crane to british columbia
All of our favourite builds start with a vision, and this unit was no different! The owner of Alternative Cartage Inc (ACI), Terry Overdiek, wanted the longest reach crane that Hiab had to offer to be paired with the cleanest, heavy spec pre-emissions truck on the market. For those of you in the business you can imagine this would not be an easy task, but for Falcon Equipment it was just another day at the office!
The truck was sourced locally, from there the design and engineering began. From start to finish this build took us six months to complete. The custom ground up build was crafted with ACI’s needs and wants as our top priority.
The finished product comes complete with the longest vertical reach Hiab crane in North America at 124-feet. The Hiab 858 E8 HiPro features a six-section jib and has synchronized automatic hoist controls. This unit has a maximum pick of just under 40,000 lbs making any job possible.
Keep an eye out for this baby in the Lower Mainland as it takes on some extreme worksites! Most recently the unit has travelled the narrow downtown Vancouver alleys avoiding powerlines to complete rooftop deliveries.
