Crane Design Conversion + Fabrication
Crane Design Conversion & Fabrication – Lima 2400B
In 2009, we dug this crane out of the side of a sand quarry in Florida, shipped it out to Long Beach, CA. on 13 trucks, then began the entire rebuild.
• The rebuild was completed in 4 months
• New custom house
• New machinery including a Caterpillar C18 ACERT and all new systems
• New cab with electronic over air controls
• Sheet metal house was replaced with a fabricated steel house
Every inch of the crane was disassembled, sandblasted, and painted, then put back together with all new turning components including bushings, bearings, swing circle house rollers, hook rollers, and stump.
We selected this crane because we could use the robust and proven reliability of a Lima 2400, combined with modern technology to make a digging machine unparalleled by others in its class.
The rebuild was completed in 4 months and involved a new custom house with brand new machinery including a Caterpillar C18 ACERT and all new systems, as well as a new cab with electronic over air controls to lessen the burden of continuous operating for our Leverman.
The sheet metal house was replaced with a fabricated steel house that is more conducive to the marine environment, and quieter for the crews working on the deck around it. All the work was done in-house by Curtin Maritime.
