Mountain Crane Safety Scholarship Winners

Mountain Crane would like to congratulate the recipients of our 2014 Safety Shield Scholarship Award! Suelyn and Mallory are both excellent students, working hard to further their education. Mountain Crane wishes them the best of luck as they pursue their academic goals with the aid of this scholarship.

Featured below are inserts from both applications:

Mallory Jackson: Like most kids, I learned basic safety, such as looking both ways at crosswalks, wearing a seatbelt, and not talking to strangers. I value that advice, but I learned a higher level of safety on our family farm. The combination of farm equipment, tools, animals, and a dozen small children running around, make it easy to see that safety matters. I learned to saddle my horse correctly, and to make wide turns while driving a truck and trailer loaded with horses. We know to drive slowly in the feed truck with two tons of hay, a couple dogs, your Grandpa, and a few little kids on the back, and to pay extra attention when driving the tractor. Safety is part of our everyday life.

Suelyn Trump: I want to further my education so I can help others in need. I want to be a Life Flight nurse one day. I want to be able to help everyone I can. So many people need help and I want to be the one that can do it. I care about people and they all play an important role in life. I believe that everyone deserves a 2nd chance. I want to be the one that gave them that chance!

Replacing a Helipad

Mountain Crane Service recently helped Primary Children’s Hospital replace their helipad. Sitting on the roof of the building, there were 50 yards of concrete needing to be removed. After breaking up the concreat (160,000 lbs!) it had to be lifted off the roof by crane by the bucketful. Once the concrete was removed, Primary Children’s was able to replace the 2500 square foot helicopter pad.

I-15 Bridge Girder Project

Phase one of a three phase project on Utah’s Interstate -15 was completed at the end of August. The 500 ton Liebherr LTM 1400 7.1 set 85,000 lb, 115’ long precast concrete bridge girders along the 500 South exit of I-15 in Bountiful, Utah. The project had to be done overnight for minimal traffic flow. Mountain Crane will return to complete phase 2 & 3 of the project. The outside lanes (completed) were put in place to widen the freeway. Until the project is completed, traffic will be re-routed & we will return to replace old, existing girders on the inside lanes.
