Lifting Gear Hire Introduces 700-Ton Modular Spreader Beam

Lifting Gear Hire Corporation, Bridgeview, Ill., has announced the addition of the 700-ton modular system into its rental inventory. The system gives LGH customers the ability to lift as much as 700 tons up to 75 feet and to reach out to 443 tons at 100 feet unsupported.

The spreader beam's capacity means that long lifts, such as those typically found on bridge jobs and various trusses, can now be done with single cranes instead of multiple cranes. “And with it being modular, it gives us the extra advantage of being able to ship anywhere on standard flatbeds,” said David McKenzie, LGH Houston customer service manager. “That means no permits, no escorts, and for customers, no worries.”

Lifting Gear Hire Corporation is devoted exclusively to the rental of winching and material handling equipment. The company has 12 locations in the United States, with sales support representatives in more than 25 states.
