Digging & Rigging, a crane and rigging company based out of Mount Airy, Md., deployed a Grove TMS500-2 truck crane to assist a helicopter with the installation of a new radio tower in Clear Spring, Md. The helicopter air-lifted the 5-ton tower antenna while the truck crane helped tail it until it was in a complete vertical position.

The company decided to use the TMS500-2 in this unique job site application because of its lightweight, versatility and excellent taxi capabilities.

"It was an exciting job because this truck crane was just acquired by Digging and Rigging and this was the first project it was put to work on, which is not an ordinary everyday lift for a crane," said Andrew Forepaugh, vice president of sales, Cleveland Crane and Shovel, the dealer that helped the Digging and Rigging team choose the TMS500-2. "The whole team was excited about this unique opportunity, and the crane performed great."
