By Hannah Sundermeyer11 March 2020

At the Kobelco stand, Weston Settlemier, Bigge Crane & Rigging president, officially accepted ownership of a new Kobelco CK3300G-2 crawler crane, one of a 20-unit order. 


Bigge celebrated the handover of their fifth Kobelco CK3300G-2 crawler crane. 

”This crane right here, is Bigge’s fifth 330-ton crane,” said Jack Fendrick, chief operating officer, Kobelco Construction Machinery. “It was part of a 20-unit package that Weston placed with us this morning at ConExpo. We are very happy to receive that, and to be in a partnership with an organization like Bigge.”

The CK3300G-2 is a lattice boom hydraulic crawler crane with a lift capacity of 330 US tons (300 metric tons). Its maximum boom length is 295 feet (90 meters). This maximum lift height of the CK3300G-2 can be increased to 356 feet (109 meters) with a fixed jib attachment.

”We bought our first machines back in 2007, and Jack was there from the start and is still here today,” said Settlemier. “We really appreciate that consistency. It means a lot to me to work with someone who’s been in the business over 25 years. My family has been in the business for over 103 years. We’re really proud to have our fifth machine in the fleet, and with the order for 20 we placed this morning, we are going to have over 100 Kobelcos. That makes us the largest owner in the country. We’re looking forward to continuing on with this partnernship.”
