Barden puts its new NBT45 to work hauling and placing 400-barrel oil tanks.

Canadian haulage firm Barden Oilfield Hauling has added a National NBT45 boom truck to its fleet. The NBT45, manufactured by Manitowoc, is mounted on a tri-drive, dual steer, Kenworth C500 semi-tractor.

According to Barry Anderson, owner of Barden Oilfield Hauling, the combination of the NBT45 on the semi-tractor enables them to lift and transport loads with one vehicle, representing huge cost savings.

The new vehicle also enables Barden to meet new oilfield environmental regulations, which require crane operators to place equipment from a longer radius. The NBT45 lets Barden reach almost 90 feet (27.4 metres) to place tanks and other equipment, instead of the 60 feet (18.2 m) radius that was the maximum before adding this crane to the fleet.

Barden worked closely with National Crane's Canada dealer, Strongco, to have the NBT45 mounted on the semi-tractor. Following its success, Barden has since ordered a second NBT45, this one to be mounted on a lighter semi-tractor to allow for more payload.
