Crane Rental Corporation, Orlando, Florida, has completed a series of lifts at the Kennedy Space Center. Working for main contractor, Ivey's Construction, CRC used its 300 ton capacity Manitowoc Model 2250 crawler crane for lifts on the space shuttle's launch tower. According to CRC, highlights of the project were the 50,000 pound diversion doors and the 13,000 pound top mast (candle stick) change out. The boom configuration in the picture is a 120 foot luffing jib on a 190 foot main boom.
