Overcoming Poor Weather Conditions in Michigan to Lift 12 Components

Using the 1,400-ton Demag CC-6800, Deep South set 12 components at a mining facility in Michigan over the course of 5 months. The components ranged in weight from 85,000 pounds to 100,000 pounds. Despite very poor weather conditions, this project was completed on time and in budget. 

Pictured here is the first ore bin hopper, which was 100,000 pounds and set at a 282' radius.
