1960’s Caboose Transport

CUSTOMER: The Allen Morris Companies

PROJECT: The Allen Morris Companies had a 1960’s caboose on site on Howell Mill Road in Atlanta that they wanted to remove, transport to Austell, and unload in Austell. Their plans are to restore the caboose.

EQUIPMENT: 165-Ton crane with a spreader bar and rigging team

First, we had to clean up the site in order to protect our equipment from tire damage to the crane and trucks considering the old sight was a scrap yard.

Superior Rigging & Erecting Co. provided a 165-Ton crane with a spreader bar and rigging team to remove the caboose and set it on a truck. The crane and rigging team followed the truck to the yard in Austell and unloaded the caboose per customer instructions.

MACY’S GREAT TREE LIGHTING

PROJECT: Remove the tree from a flat bed truck to set on the roof of Macy’s at the Lennox Square Mall in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. After Christmas, remove the tree and set on truck for removal.

CUSTOMER: Macy’s

EQUIPMENT: 90 Ton Crane + Rigging Team

The Macy’s Christmas tree is a famous Atlanta tradition that has been happening for decades. Superior Rigging & Erecting employee, Chris Leavy, recounts his experience of the event as a child:

“When I was a kid, I remember going to see Superior Rigging set the Christmas tree on the old Rich’s Building in Downtown Atlanta. They use to have a children’s ride, the pink pig that use to go around the tree.”

Many Atlanta residents have similar, fond memories of the event. The Macy’s Great Tree Lighting is a special event during a special time of year and we are so glad we are able to participate. The lighting is an annual, fun-filled tradition that features the Christmas tree lighting as well as a pre-show concert and fireworks finale. We used one of our 90 tonLink-Belt cranes to set the tree in preparation for the event.

Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 – 350-ton Crane

In 2017, we purchased a Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2; a COLOSSAL, 350-ton, cutting-edge crane system, which will assist with our complex projects and operations throughout Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding areas.

The Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 is a six-axle machine which features an innovative drive concept: an engine in the undercarriage which powers the superstructure using a mechanical shaft. The machine is versatile with a maximum load capacity of 350-tons and a maximum tip height of 390-feet. The inventive engineering allows for high performance with variable boom options.

We have enjoyed using the Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 crane to assist with projects like the Philips Arena Renovations, which hosts the Atlanta Hawks and various concerts/events.

We work tirelessly to provide solutions for projects requiring heavy steel, erecting and rigging needs. Established in 1952, we have the experience and industry-wide reputation for mobilizing the most complicated heavy steel projects in the United States; from coast-to-coast.
