Amtrak Utilizes the Crane Spreader Bar System by Boscaro
Amtrak, the passenger train company based in the USA, runs more than 300 trains on a daily basis. When Amtrak needed valuable train car components lifted for transport to the Mid-West, a Delaware based company, Active Crane Rentals, Inc. was hired to perform the hoists.
In order to maximize on their lifting capacity, Active Crane planned to perform a straight line pull. To protect the sides of the 70,000 lb and 100,000 lb components, they utilized their Boscaro EZ spreader bar system.
The EZ spreader bar system features a unique design of male and female interlocking sections. Each galvanized section can be used as an individual bar, as was done for the Amtrak lifts, or they can be combined to form an adjustable spreader bar with 1’ increments. By allowing you to adapt to project demands with one system, the need for an assortment of bar lengths is eliminated; improving your efficiency and helping to manage project costs.
“Today my big thing is cutting down costs and in order to cut costs you have to cut down on time. The available capacity and the ease of adjustability offered by the EZ spreader bar system equals cost and time savings. We utilize the bars every day, they are constantly in use.” Butch Garton – Crane & Rigging Specialist, Active Crane Rentals, Inc.
