Engineered Lifting and Jacking

Lifting, handling and placing of heavy pieces or assembled structures require the knowledge of rigging practices, wire rope specifications and hydraulics. At Somerset, we have all these skills to be able to raise and position any structure with expert engineering. We were the first (1988) engineering company to design a tiltable spreader to lift and adjust precast concrete bridge segments. We have progressively advanced the designs with hydraulics and PLC controls. We have designed many unique spreaders and systems in order to pick a wide range of objects and structures.
