LIFTING THE ANGEL MORONI
On Wednesday, June 1, Mountain Crane had the opportunity to help remove the lighting rod and attach a hook to the lightning-damaged Angel Moroni statue atop the Bountiful Utah Temple. Mountain Crane used the GMK 5275 crane to hoist Angel Moroni, and the GMK 6300 crane hoisting a man basket. Both cranes had to reach up 200 + feet to replace the 500 lbs statue.
Transporting a Flight Simulator
This month Mountain Crane had the unique privilege of transporting a flight simulator for Bountiful Flight. This job featured our crane service along with Mountain Heavy Transport, and our Jack and Slide Division. We used our jack and slide skates to move the simulator out of a tight area in an enclosed hanger in the West Jordan Airport, to a spot where our 40 ton boom truck could safely hoist. As soon as it was in the air, we used our heavy haul truck to back up underneath the simulator. After securing the simulator on the trailer, we were ready to move the simulator to its new home in Bountiful, Utah.
Of course it was easier said than done. The challenging part about the whole job was the fragile gyros located within the flight simulators computer. If anything was to go wrong with those gyros it would ruin the whole machine, which is worth $100,000. We took extra precautions transporting the simulator by choosing routes with smooth roadways, avoiding pot holes along the way while maintaining a mild speed. When we arrived to the delivery site, we set up the 40 ton boom truck right next to the semi and lifted the simulator off gently. We then swung around and set the simulator on jack and slide skates in front of the new hanger. Since this new hanger only had 20 feet of clearance our jack and slide skate were perfect for this part of the job. We gently pushed the simulator into place and lifted the simulator off the skates using jacks and very gently sat it upon the ground. We thank Bountiful Flight for the amazing privilege it was to do this job for them!
