Rigging and Heavy Hauling

Good Morning, Greg,

I wanted to let you know Ron went above and beyond the call of duty for us last week. It was a difficult situation on Monday and he did an amazing job defusing the situation with the site super and then pulling the truck out of the mud. He did a fantastic job on all fronts.

Rigging for a pick


Your rigging team did a great job today. Glad to have gone with you and your team to get this equipment unloaded and set today. We will definitely use you guys again for any heavy lifting.

Thanks again!

We would not have been able to get the job done if it wasn’t for Tony (Operator) taking control of the site. An outside trucking that they had ordered to deliver their unit. The driver of the truck delivering was not cooperating and refused to back into the site. Tony told Marc that he would just set the crane up twice and move the unit into the jobsite that way. I was very impressed and pleased with Tony.

I would like to take a minute and recognize your folks for the very safe and productive work done on our outage over the weekend. I myself was not in but multiple maintenance techs and the day foreman made it a point to go out of their way on Monday morning to inform me of Stevenson’s great teamwork and safe execution.

Bob and Josh were the two guys on site that blended in great with our team. Please extend our appreciation to them plus all who made this happen in such short notice (3 days!)

Thanks again!

Just would like to let you know that I worked with Stevenson’s rigging crew on the 345kv Breaker replacement at Braidwood Station. The crew members were knowledgeable, helpful and above all worked safely. They were a huge help in replacing the BT 1-8 345kv Breaker in a safe and timely manner.

Lifting Equipment Sales

I am always grateful for the way you people at Stevenson take care of us. I call, someone answers, we agree to whatever we are asking for and it gets done – and it is done right. No voice mail, no excuses – just results. From a customer’s perspective, it just does not get any better than that. But at times it actually does.

You sent us Jimbo and Lumpy to the Windfarm job and we finished a real bad job in near record time. They have to be the best team you have – and please do not read into this that any of them are bad. No arguing, no complaining, nothing damaged and no one hurt. They even helped us with things beyond what we would have expected.

Thanks for being so helpful to us. And thanks to all of your good people.

Lifting Equipment Rental

I wanted to take a minute to send my thanks for the support provided to COMED recently. We had crane work at DCC 90 Skokie, TSS 85 Skokie, ABBVIE in North Chicago and TDC 216 Mt Prospect respectively. All of these jobs went really well.

The ABBVIE pole job was impressive given the distance and the windy conditions. The delivery to TDC 216 also went really well under some challenging conditions. The low power lines and the tight quarters in that yard made for a challenging pick and your folks did an excellent job, AGAIN. I really appreciate how well they do what they do.

I also want to say thanks to Shawn and his crews for the work they did sliding the transformers at TSS 85 Skokie and TDC 216 Mt. Prospect.Those crews worked really well together, like they knew what each other was doing at each step of the job. The stamina it took to deal with that heat was also impressive. Can’t say it enough.

Stevenson Carry Deck Crane

I wanted to thank the two operators – Charlie Martin and Marc Recker.  This was a tough job maneuvering a wheel alignment section thru the Ford Assembly plant and setting it into a pit.  Very little head room and the piece came in 9,000 lbs. heavy making it more difficult for the 22-Ton carry decks.  I appreciated their patience and helpful ideas to complete the job.
