The helicopter air-lifted the 5-ton tower antenna while the truck crane helped tail it until it was in a complete vertical position.

The company said it decided to use the TMS500-2 in this application because of its light weight, versatility and taxi capabilities.

“It was an exciting job because this truck crane was just acquired by Digging and Rigging and this was the first project it was put to work on, which is not an ordinary everyday lift for a crane,” said Andrew Forepaugh, vice president of sales, Crane and Shovel, the dealer that helped the Digging and Rigging team choose the TMS500-2. “The whole team was excited about this unique opportunity, and the crane performed great.”
