Crane setting up on the street below the boxcar. Three additional trucks were used to bring in the 220 tons of counterweights for the job.
View of the crane from the boxcar. Note the crane is up on the hydraulic supports and the tires are off the ground. With the supports extended the crane covered 35 feet in width
Support beams were added to the shelter to help keep the shelter in tact so it could be removed. This was done by River City Structural Movers who move anything from portable building to historical homes
Austin Crane Service crew hooks up on the four points to pick up the shelter and move it out of the way so the boxcar can be removed
Between the different contractors we had quite a few working on this project to ensure everything was done. This is
Left to Right: Charlie Hawkins V175, Dave Knutson V175, Lowell Mix V542, Polly Mix C1055, and Larry Bartes V175
Boxcar Shelter about 75 feet in the air to clear the century oak tree.
Rigged by River City Structural Movers the shelter was set onto blocks and they cut off about 3’ from each leg to bring the shelter lower once it was returned to the concrete pad.
The boxcar looked much different and smaller without the shelter around it. So far – So good with the move!!!
Again – the boxcar has quite a different look then we are used to seeing
Austin Crane Service puts a sling under each end of the boxcar to pick it up. We double checked to make sure the wheels were attached as we heard some of them were not connected and came apart.
