Manitowoc crawler fleet lifts new Dolphin stadium


Maxim Crane Works is employing a fleet of Manitowoc crawler cranes for its work on the construction of the new Miami Dolphins football stadium. The job began with four 660 USt Manitowoc 18000s, each equipped with a MAX-ER that brought their capacities to 826 USt. Then the Newport, Kentucky-based company added a 772 USt Manitowoc MLC650 to the job site. Often the cranes lifted together in tandem, with the heaviest load weighing 800 USt.

“This is a challenging project and the cranes are often working around the clock, 24/7 shifts,” explained Frank Bardonaro, president of Maxim Crane Works. “Our ability to have the latest and greatest lift technology from Manitowoc enabled us to efficiently perform multiple, tandem crane picks that exceeded one million pounds. Having multiple cranes of these sizes with synchronized working speeds and qualified operating engineers were they key reasons we were able to secure the project.”
