Load Lifter Manufacturing Ltd., Stouffville (Toronto), Ontario, Canada, has rolled out a new model in its heavy-duty range of vertical-mast, rough-terrain forklifts.

The 4414-25F is a rugged, 25,000-lb.-capacity forklift that features four-wheel steering and full-time four-wheel drive.

Excellent ground clearance and gradability make it well suited for work in poor ground conditions and remote areas.

Typical applications include lumber and sawmill work, pipe handling, oil-field work, mining, and steel fabrication.

Working in tandem, two Terex lattice-boom crawler cranes set a total of 32 concrete I-beam girders for highway bridges in two eight-hour overnight shifts.

The lifts were done as part of a project in which contractor C.A. Hull Inc., Walled Lake, Mich., replaced two 57-year-old highway overpass bridges in Bay County, Mich.

The original bridges that needed replacing had been built in 1958. After more than half a century of service, those original spans had become structurally deficient and the traffic volume using them has risen to 31,800 vehicles per day.
