Jacksonville port selling two container cranes
The Port of Jacksonville is offering two of its used gantry cranes for sale to make way for new post-Panamax cranes it plans to acquire to meet anticipated increases in container volumes.
The two cranes are both 40-long-ton cranes with 50-foot gantry rail gauge widths. Each crane comes with an expandable spreader bar for 20-foot or 40-foot containers.
One crane was manufactured by Paceco Corp. in 1979 and purchased by the port in 1998. It has since been upgraded, with a new elevator, new boom structure, storm brakes, hurricane tie-downs and a snag-load protection device.
The other crane was manufactured by Alliance Machine Co. The 'A-Frame' crane was purchased by the port in 1972, and it has been upgraded with a new elevator, new boom pendants, storm brakes, hoist drum emergency disc brakes, hurricane tie-downs and a snag-load protection device.
For more information about the cranes contact Randy Murray, senior project manager, at (904) 357-3062 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. A fact sheet on the cranes is also available on the port Web site http://www.jaxport.com.
