US-based ALL Erection and Crane Rental Corp recently supplied a 500 ton (454.55 tonne) capacity Liebherr crane, with a 101 ft (30.78 m) main boom and a 264600 lb (120.13 tonne) counterweight to a tilt up concrete construction demonstration. Organised by Star Inc, an award winning designer and builder of tilt up construction projects, the three hour demonstration took place in Sandusky, Ohio, US. Star’s goal, said a company spokesman, was “to demonstrate the variety, beauty and flexibility of the tilt up construction concept.” “There’s an art,” added the spokesman, “to properly lifting, aligning and setting a concrete wall panel.”
