Cranes Combined aces delicate lift

Cranes Combined has successfully relocated a historic church in Tasmania that had been at the site for more than 100 years.

It deployed a Grove GMK5150L all-terrain crane equipped with 5.6t of counterweight and working at a radius of just under 12m. The crane took approximately 7 hours to move church.

“The church was built in the 1800s, and therefore relatively delicate, despite its size,” said Chris Kolodziej, who co-owns Cranes Combined with his wife, Cathy.

“The GMK5150L is very smooth in its operation, so the whole lift was carried out without a hitch. Even the windows, which are very thin and fragile, were undamaged in the move.”

The GMK5150L has a maximum capacity of 150t. It has a main boom length of up to 60m, and a maximum tip height of 88m.
