Mount Chima Legoland California

(April 2014)

 

We loaded an 8,000 pound structure for the new Legoland exhibit, Mount Chima.  We had to pick it up vertically and lay it down horizontally to fit on the truck. The piece was 16' in diameter and required a police escort from Storyland Stuios in Lake Elsinore to Legoland in Carlsbad CA.  It had to be moved at 2:00 a.m.

Doomsday Bunker

(December 2012)

Many people are worried about doomsday, as a result they prepare themselves by building bunkers to, among other things, protect themselves from various disasters. On Saturday December 1, we lifted one of these bunkers for the good people at the Protective Bunkers & Survival Center so that they could showcase it for their grand opening. The Bunker is 42' long with a 10' diameter weighing in at 14,000 pounds and made of thick steel.

On March 27, 2012 our crane operator Nate lifted a giant foam dragon for a lake elsinore based special effects company called Storyland Studios. The dragon was about 1,000 pounds (1/2 ton) and had a 30 foot wingspan. This dragon was being installed about 20 feet up onto the roof of the studio.

Helicopter Job #2

(June 2011)

A three passenger helicopter had to make an emergency landing after the motor stopped. All on board are fine. We had to pick it up in rural temecula and load it onto a flatbed truck so that it could be transported to Long Beach for repairs. The helicopter weighed 2,000 pounds.

Generator Job

(March 2011)

On Thursday March 24th 2011 our biggest crane, the 40-ton crane, was sent to March Air Force Base to pick up a generator. The generator weighed 16,000 pounds! That must produce a lot of electricity.

Plane Job

(January 2011)

A small private jet crashed around dusk in January 2011. One of our operators was dispatched to help lift the crashed plane. It seems in the confusion of wind and bad weather, the pilot (20+ years experience) forgot to extend the landing gear before touching down on the runway. Later it was found by the crash inspectors after lifting the plane that the landing gear was in working condition, but the warning light was not. No one on board the plane was hurt, the plane though fared worse and even though it had little structural damage had to be scrapped as it was deemed unsafe. Those broken props below cost $60,000 each!

Ice Age Job

(July 2009)

As part of the release of Ice Age Dawn of The Dinosaurs we helped construct a large ice sculpture of one of the character named Scrat. (Scrat is a small squirrel type rodent in the film who always gets hurt while trying to collect food) During the job we lifted large blocks of ice and held them in place while sculptors carved them into the correct shape and they melted onto the rest of the sculpture and stayed affixed.

This is an ice sculpture of "Scrat" for "Ice Age 3". Our crane helped lift it.

Here, our crane has a suction cup attachment rigged to it for lifting the slippery ice. Part of the sculpture is being covered in foam similar to a small icebox to help it stay insulated and prevent melting.

- Over 60,327 kg (133,000 lb) of ice, gathered from across four states where used to make the sculptures!!
