Tower Inspection

Tower Inspection provides installation and testing services for multiple kinds of towers and transmission lines all over the world - from Australia to Iceland and all parts of the United States. Their main business is with government contractors - mostly the military and other government agencies.

Their work takes them to remote mountain-tops, valleys, and far-away islands. This means that access to equipment is difficult, expensive, and fraught with complications. They bring in 20-foot and 40-foot containers weighing 40,000 lb (18143 kg) to 50,000 lb (22680 kg).

A Waiting Game For Tower

Before their C-Lift, Tower Inspection would ship their equipment and then wait for a crane to arrive to offload the containers from a truck. Their remote sites meant that they would often wait for hours to days for a crane to arrive. Meanwhile, their labor teams were unable to work.

Not only was this expensive and often resulted in delays, but cranes would commonly be rejected by the customer’s safety inspection, necessitating further delays while they waited for another crane.

Tower Inspection looked for a way to handle the containers in remote areas without using cranes. They considered containers with built-in legs. However, these were too limiting as it was not possible to move the legs from one container to another.

Bison C-Lifts

By using the Bison C-Lift, Tower Inspection saves money and time. Now, they carry their container handling equipment inside the containers that they ship. After a short set-up, Tower Inspection is able to offload the container from the truck, and load it back on without cranes.

Tower Inspection uses a Bison C-Lift P-Series. Portable and tough, the C-Lift P Series is a heavy-load container-lifting solution that can be easily transported and operated by small teams.
