Equipment at Work
High Reach Inc. out in the field flexing it’s muscle
Since we first introduced Canada to the Broderson line of carry deck cranes (back in 1982, when the mountains were still cooling) High Reach Inc. has continually used our expertise and cumulative knowledge to solve machinery moving, production, construction, and maintenance problems in industries ranging from vinyards to rail yards, from power plants to parts stamping, and from hospitals to hangars.
Here are just a few action (and some stop-action) examples of our equipment at work.
IC-80 @ Work on the Toronto Eaton's CentreThe most popular of Broderson's complete line is the 8 ton capacity IC-80. Only 7'3" tall, the IC-80 can readily enter into small areas for performance of maintenance and construction tasks. Since we introduced the Broderson IC-80 to Canadian Industry more than 20 years ago, they have become the standard. Here, an IC-80 is being picked up and placed on the roof of the Toronto Eaton's Centre.
30K Yale w/BoomHigh Reach Inc., specializes in the rental of low travel height, but large capacity fork lift trucks.Moving machinery or loads with this impediment requires lifting from above. This is accomplished with the installation of an engineered rigger’s boom. The ability to raise the telescopic boom with the push of a lever greatly simplifies and speeds operation. Here one of our many 30,000 lbs capacity fork lift trucks demonstrates the ability to access tight locations and perform difficult lifting tasks.
IC-80At the 5,000 foot level, a diesel-powered Broderson IC-80. assists in the placement of steel and materials in the construction of a new shaft down to the 10,000 foot level in Timmins, Ontario. The IC-80 is, by far, the most popular crane built by Broderson. Extraordinarily small and versatile, the IC-80 is capable of doing some heavy work, too. Every major car maker in North America can’t be wrong, can they?
IC-80A slight problem arose during a not-so-distant renovation at the Eaton: The tower crane installed for the work could not reach all of the areas which required the installation of structural steel. What are you going to do? A call to High Reach Inc., partially dismantle an 8 ton capacity Broderson IC-80 and hoist it onto the roof to complete the job. The Broderson IC-80 may be the world’s most versatile mobile industrial crane.
Tri-Lifter 65 @ WorkThe Riggers Tri Lifters are all very compact, easy to operate and extremely powerful. Digital display of load weight, boom and counterweight position coupled with 2-speed hydrostatic drives permit precise handling in the most demanding and confining situations. Automatic Overload Shutoff prevents the operator from exceeding design capacity regardless of load configuration or position. Wide wheels distribute the weight of the Tri Lifter and its load, minimizing floor loading.
IC-80 @ Work at the Toronto Transit CommissionAssisting in the 2003 (and 2004) Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway expansion, the IC-80's proved most useful working in such confined space. Whether handling steel, re-rod or panels Broderson carry deck cranes increase efficiency.
