Bigge Crane XR7038 Saves The Day!

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Las Vegas-based Xtreme Manufacturing showcased North America’s largest rough terrain telehandler at the World of Concrete 2015 exhibition which took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center on 3rd – 6th February.  The impressive Xtreme XR7038 on display has been purchased by Bigge Crane, and was shown in their distinctive blue and white livery.

Following the show, Bigge Crane kindly loaned the machine to assist EC Source, a customer of Ahern Rentals, who was working close to the Xtreme Manufacturing facility at the time.  EC Source was installing new power poles for Project Neon, the Nevada Department of Transportation’s major “design-build” project that will widen Interstate 15 from Sahara Avenue to the intersection of Interstate 15, U.S. Route 95, Interstate 515, and Martin Luther King Blvd (“The Spaghetti Bowl” freeway interchange).  The project is expected to cost $1.5 billion and should be completed by 2019.

The Xtreme XR7038 was required to lift one of the largest power pole sections from the delivery truck at EC Source’s yard.  Weighing in at 53,000 lbs., the pole exceeded the lifting capabilities of other equipment on site that day.  The XR7038 was ideally suited as it can lift up to 70,000 lbs.  It also made the job very quick and easy as no use or setup of a crane was needed.

Bigge Crane is one of North America’s leading heavy lift and specialized transportation providers who also deals new and used cranes.  Bigge is a longstanding Xtreme customer with 20 machines in their fleet.  They are also an approved Xtreme dealer.
