Description of the E-Crane
Phillip Services was looking for a way to increase productivity, reliably feed a scrap bailer and lower their operating costs. Several material handling cranes were reviewed but when the decision was taken, the E-Crane was selected.
Installed in 1989, the Model 4248 E-Crane stands on a freestanding pedestal, has 81 feet of outreach and handles 6 UStons in Duty Cycle Operation. The crane has over 24,000 hours of operation in the “tough environment” of scrap handling. The crane’s principal functions are to feed a bailer, stockpile and sort scrap and load out bails.
According to Joe Giacoboni, the Maintenance Supervisor, “The E-Crane is the most reliable piece of equipment we have ever owned, this is a super crane.” The original swing bearing / bull gear is in place still giving great service.
You (E-Crane) are the best!
