Bigge Adds Construction Hoists to its Tower Crane Division

The expansion of products and services offered by Bigge Group continues to grow with the addition of construction hoists to its tower crane operations. Bigge Crane & Rigging announced it now offers the Alimak Scando 650 FC frequency control hoists, which feature soft start/stop for smoother operations and reduced energy consumption on site.

The hoists will be offered for sale or rent alongside Bigge’s tower and mobile cranes, establishing a one-stop-shop for all contractors’ lifting needs nationwide.

“We have added this service as a direct response to our tower crane customers asking us to supply hoists as well,” said Weston Settlemier, president of Bigge Group. “Our aim is to make life easier and more profitable for our customers. Offering them a one-stop shop where they can meet all their crane and hoist requirements with just a single phone call is a clear way of doing this.”

West Coast customers gain from the additional benefits of Bigge’s full erection, maintenance and dismantle service. Teams of professional engineers, project managers and estimators are available to assist in all phases of design and delivery.

The Scando 650 is available in single- or double-car configuration, offering payloads for construction materials or personnel of 3,300 to 7,050 pounds.

Bigge announced the establishment of its tower crane division in 2007, with the full range of Terex-Comedil luffing jib and flat-top and Terex-Peiner hammerhead cranes for sale or rent. This year Bigge has further developed its rental fleet with the addition of Potain MR 405 and MR 605 luffing jib models. A bare rental service is offered from nine locations nationwide. As with the new construction hoist business, West Coast customers are offered full turnkey services, including site planning, erection/dismantling, operating and maintenance by factory-trained professionals working out of five service branches.

Bigge also announced it has expanded its inventory of tower crane spare parts for all Terex-Comedil and Terex-Peiner tower crane models.

Bigge’s consolidated Tower & Hoist Division is managed by Jesse Sullivan.
