Highland Machinery & Crane’s equipment list includes:

TriLifter TL100 w/ custom control system for crane work

TriLifter rigger boom attachment w/ platform for reaching 35’+

VersaLift 40/60 with extended mast/boom option

Rigger boom attachment w/ platform

Broderson IC-200 carry deck crane

Telehandlers and triple stage 15K lift trucks

We specialize in working in low-headroom environments where cranes must be lifted from underneath. Our large inventory of custom-built platforms, lifting racks, and attachments allows us to set cranes at heights typically reserved for mobile cranes, meaning no roof penetrations or risky “tight-rigged” slings.

Each job is unique, and Highland Machinery and Crane prides itself on determining the exact requirements for each one. Past projects have ranged from pre-demolition removals where the surroundings were no factor to full-line in-plant shutdowns where timing and caution to existing cranes and machinery was crucial.
