Fri May 22, 2009 - National Edition

The redesigned Aspen 40 ton (36 t) 5 axle crane dolly recently delivered to Mammoet Crane in Edmonton, Alberta, to connect to its Liebherr 1400 hydraulic crane is packed full of new features. This crane dolly offers increased protection for the hydraulic crane boom, operational features to meet the specific needs of the customer and even more safety features than previous designs, according to the manufacturer.

Aspen’s engineering team designed this particular crane dolly with all air ride suspensions for a smoother ride to protect the hydraulic boom from rough roads. The moving carriage on this dolly has both vertical and lateral greasable rollers and Teflon coated top rails on the dolly frame to ensure the carriage is free to slide as the crane negotiates corners, further reducing the strain on the crane boom.

It is lighter weight than other crane dollies its size making it efficient for the self-propelled crane to tow, according to the manufacturer.

This crane dolly was designed with 5 axles to meet specific weight regulations in the jurisdictions Mammoet Crane operates. It is equipped with both 12 volt and 24 volt lighting systems to ensure compatibility with any crane manufacturer’s lighting specifications.

The crane dolly features ergonomic stairs on both sides and safety tread plate throughout to further increase the safety of the operator while connecting and disconnecting the crane boom from the Aspen crane dolly.

Aspen Custom Trailers has a wide range of crane dollies available in various configurations based on its customer’s crane and operating area including Aspen’s 3 axle configuration.

In addition to designing these trailers for crane operators, Aspen can design crane dollies for OEM crane manufacturers.

Aspen Custom Trailers manufactures custom-built trailers and components from 25 to 600 ton (22.7 to 544 t) capacities.
