Big move for Bigge

24 April 2008

Using a 16-dolly trailer, Bigge Crane and Rigging transported a 500,000 pound transformer from Pleasanton to Newark, CA. Bigge received the 250 ton transformer at the rail spur, offloaded the unit and built the trailer around the load. Once built and permits secured, the crew and the 280 foot long trailer made the 45 mile trip in two nights. The route included secluded back roads, residential streets and main arteries in several Bay Area cities.
