The Crane Rental Association of Canada will present a proposed amendment to the current 2-yr All-Terrain Crane Pilot Project. This is an opportunity for Municipalities to increase their knowledge of cranes as representatives of the organization demonstrate, in details, how this change will impact the industry and the projects requiring the use of all-terrain cranes.
The Association is asking to limit the current pilot project to:
• 3, 4, 5 axle cranes.
• Allow these cranes to operate with dollies at the permitted Pilot Project weights.
This will solve an important concern:
• It will restrict larger cranes (6,7,8 axle) to the current legislated weight restrictions.
By restricting the Pilot Project to 3, 4 and 5 axle all terrain cranes with dollies, we are addressing the concerns expressed by government officials. It would also allow the crane owners of Alberta to more efficiently build the critical public and private infrastructure to ensure Alberta’s competitiveness. At the end of the Pilot Project, with an adequate data collection, we can then assess if 6 and 7 axle all-terrain cranes could be included in review of the current legislation.
The following presenters will provide the background information and answer questions.
Presenters: Claire Bélanger-Parker, Executive Director
Trevor Eckert, VP Sterling Crane & Chair, Boom Dolly Research Committee
Mike Lavoie, Operations Manager, Myshak Crane & Rigging, BDRC
