The Need

Michigan Department of Transportation was in need of a customized crane to handle new installations, scheduled maintenance, repairs and/or replacements of their large overhead signs and the supporting structures. Elliott Equipment Company, backed with an industry-proven engineering team, were up for the challenge.

TURNKEY SOLUTION

The result was a customized 26 ton crane, with a 105 foot tip height and digger attachment. This solution allowed the DOT not only to handle heavy structures and signs, but also to dig holes up to 48” in diameter with an equipped 20,000 ft-lb hydraulic auger for setting vertical assemblies. In addition, the machine touted wireless radio remote controls, conspicuity light bar, a special air compressor for powering the crew’s tools mounted to the custom 20-foot bed to allow maximum available bed space and toolboxes for extra carrying capacity.

MORE OF A GOOD THING

Michigan DOT was so impressed with this versatile unit, they recently added another Elliott to their fleet. The second unit is a SkyWalk material handling aerial with a 16’ long work platform which provides a three-man platform, maximum side reach while providing a compact operating envelope.
