Encore is a company with a wealth of years of experience. This is evident through our wide variety of work done through all sectors of industry, government, and private individuals. If there is a lift to be done, difficult or simple, Encore has the background and ability to work it out. Over time experience has shown that variation in our fleet serves our customers well. Each unit’s design has been thought out carefully to accommodate certain lifting conditions. Our dispatch personnel are thoroughly knowledgeable in assessing your lifting needs. They ask specific questions about load weight and dimensions, location and site conditions to get a well rounded picture before scheduling.
Our fleet of knuckle cranes (folding), up to 50 ton, a lifting cap of 40,000 pounds and a total reach up to 85 feet, solve many lifting problems in confined spaces. Jibs are tools added to the end of these knuckle cranes to change the angle of the lift to facilitate accessing tight spots. The crane can park outside the building opening, extending the boom to inside with a jib on the end to go under and up. This is very handy for installing loads near the ceiling or just inside doors, engines or compressors under wires or pipes in compressor stations, and pumps into pump shacks. These folding cranes are excellent for placing transformers, vessels, overhead cranes, various tanks, concrete forms, motors, industrial machines, garden sheds, pre-fabricated concrete, lathes, c-cans, oilfield rod and pipe.
Our longest reach for our boom pickers is 155’( with 124’ live boom and 31’ swing jib), perfect for those high and heavy loads like air conditioning units, other roof top units, roofing materials, signs, poles and trusses. Manbasket work can go as high as 160 feet.
Encore has the largest capacity truck-mounted cranes in Western Canada both as boom truck pickers and folding cranes. Our fleet enables us to do many lifts a full size crane can, but at half the cost. This enables our customers to have more choices for heavy lifting before hiring a more expensive full-size crane.
