Repair and Load Testing of 150 Ton Crawler Crane

The crane in question is a old crawler crane, make Clark, built in the 1970's. Alatas had repaired a dented boom and replaced 4 lacings, utilizing Alatas' skilled welding and NDT team. Upon completion, the crane was load tested with a proof load of 172,000 lbs.

The load test was completed in a record shortest time, using 2x 100 waterbags, which greatly simplifies rigging as compared to regular 35t bags. The use of a 6" water pump with a capacity of 2000 GPH ensures very fast filling of the water bags.
