Walton Hills Heavy Rigging Company Lifts Mixing Drum

Heavy Rigging Company Called in for 25,000 Lift

Big lifts call for big equipment and big skills! Interstate Towing & Transport receives calls for a heavy rigging company with capability to complete major lifts all the time. We recently assisted a construction company with a 25,000 pound lift in the Walton Hills, Ohio area. Here’s how we completed the heavy rigging job.

This particular call came in on a Monday from a local Walton Hills construction company. The caller reported that one of their massive mixing drums had a broken gear that prevented it from spinning. In order to assess the issue and fix this problem, the drum would need to be lifted off its base and placed into a designated area on the ground.

As the most trusted heavy rigging company in Walton Hills, Interstate Towing was happy to respond. While we knew the basics of the situation, the heavy rigging team was sent out with the 80-ton wrecker to ensure we were prepared for everything. 

Upon arrival at the scene, we got right to work. Proper rigging protocols were exercised to ensure the safety of all involved. Thanks to the 80-ton capability of our wrecker, we were able to slide the boom mass to the rear position and boom out over the drum. Slowly and carefully, the 25,000 lbs mixing drum was lifted about 10 feet up into the air, out of the base where the gear sits. 

The mixing drum was then maneuvered over to a designated waiting area. The construction company will have the repairs completed before calling our heavy rigging company again to place the mixing drum back in its rightful place. 

Thanks to our heavy rigging equipment and expertise, this job was successfully completed with ease. We take pride in being the #1 heavy rigging company in the Walton Hills area.
