The cover story of Crane Hot Line’s January 2021 issue featured the increasing popularity of knuckleboom cranes, and Fascan/Fassi equipment was right in the thick of the discussion.

Read the full article here, and see what Bernie Faloney, Fascan President and CEO, and others had to say about the state of the market.

Tried and True

Fassi leads the field in prototype testing

Some crane manufacturers have shifted their prototype testing from physical to digital: instead of actual repetitions, product failures are calculated via algorithm and computer simulation.

Fassi is not one of those companies.

As part of its standard testing, Fassi:

As a result, Fassi’s testing procedures exceed both E.U. and U.S. standards and requirements.

Terex to distribute Fassi Across U.S. markets

New agreement to add 19 locations to Fascan’s service reach

Fascan International announced today that it has entered into a dealer partnership with Terex Services as a full service dealer for Fassi products.

As part of this partnership, Terex Services will provide maintenance, repair, and parts for Fassi products across all of its 19 branch locations in the U.S. Terex Services will also sell and install Fassi cranes and attachments at select locations.

The addition of Terex Services locations expands Fascan’s sales and service reach to more than 120 locations across all 50 states.

Terex Services installs and provides parts, maintenance and repair services for Terex Utilities equipment, Genie aerial work platforms and Load King cranes and similar equipment from other manufacturers.

“We’re very excited to have Terex Services as part of the Fassi family,” says Bernie Faloney, Fascan’s CEO. “Along with its 19 locations, Terex Services’ field service technicians will expand Fascan’s ability to assist U.S. Fassi users nationwide in keeping their Fassi knuckleboom cranes running and profitable.”

“Fassi knuckleboom cranes have always been a great complement to utility fleets performing above- and below-ground utility work,” says Nick Cammisa, Director of Service Sales at Terex. “We are pleased to partner with Fascan to be able to offer service support to its customers.”

Retracing the Path of Lincoln

Fascan’s contribution to a Civil-War-era reconstruction project in Lancaster, Pa., was covered in the April 2020 issue of Crane Hot Line. Read the full article here about how a Fassi F1950RAL helped construct and preserve different elements of a railroad site built for President Abraham Lincoln.

To our Fassi and Fascan family, partners, and customers:

COVID-19 UpdateAs global concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak grows, Fascan and Fassi are doing everything we can to safeguard the health of our customers, our staff and our community at large, and also maintain the highest quality of service and support for you. Here are a few things you need to know as we progress through the next few weeks:

First, we have asked our employees to work remotely for their own safety, and also to answer state and federal governments’ requests to stay home.

Next, our parts and service departments will still be on hand to answer phone calls and emails.

Finally, the staff of Albino-Italy-based Fassi, for whom Fascan is the exclusive U.S. distributor, are working from their homes where practical. The Fassi manufacturing plant is closed at this time, but they are hopeful to be up and running by early April.

Please do not hesitate to call any of our team members for any concerns that you have. We will try our very best to accommodate your needs.

Together we will get through this crisis and we will come out the other side stronger and better.

Fascan closes a successful ConExpo 2020

Fascan at ConExpo 2020Fascan International drew an enthusiastic response to its 2020 ConExpo exhibit in Las Vegas, March 10-13.

The show, which covered some 2.5 million square feet of exhibitor space, and despite experiencing some disruption and an early-wrap up due to concerns over COVID-19, drew more than 2,000 exhibitors and 100,000 visitors.

The Fascan/Fassi exhibit site saw hundreds of visitors at this year’s show. Many of those attendees showed special interest in the JF545, a powerful, versatile representative of the new JF Series, which combines the accessibility and mobility of a Jekko minicrane with the power and lifting/placing capabilities of a Fassi knuckleboom crane.

The JF545 features a maximum lift of 34,100 lbs., a maximum horizontal reach of 91.8' (with jib), and a maximum vertical reach of 98.4' (with jib)

“Crane owners and operators are on a continuous search for ways to lift more, in more efficient ways, and within a smaller footprint,” said Bernie Faloney, president and CEO of Fascan. “We opened up a whole new realm of possibilities for them this year with the JF Series, and the response was fantastic.”

ConExpo is one of the largest exhibitions of heavy equipment in the world, and the largest in North America. It is held every three years for the construction and concrete industries.

The new F375SE.14—a lighter, stronger crane for the wallboard market

F375SE.14Fascan International is pleased to introduce the 7-story Fassi F375SE.14, with a maximum lifting capacity of more than 7,900 lbs., a vertical reach of 84' and a horizontal reach of more than 72'.

This new model features an extension on the main boom and 4 extensions on the outer boom, allowing operators to extend the boom vertically to 38' with a load before knuckling over and extending it to its full reach.

Another enhancement on the F375SE is that the inner boom can be extended at any angle. On previous load charts, the inner boom angle could only be extended after the boom was above 45 degrees.

These features offer unique benefits to the operation of unloading and distributing stacks of wallboard over obstacles in a variety of situations.

The F375SE.14 and its F375SE.13 counterpart also feature a ten-sided boom, which increases the overall strength and stability of the boom when compared to a traditional diamond-shaped structure.

It also incorporates stronger steel into the boom structure which allows for a lighter overall design without affecting the crane's maximum lift. This increases the overall vehicle payload and enables operators to carry more and make fewer trips to and from a jobsite.

Dealers and technicians were given a tour of these and other features:

Fascan International Donates Five Cranes to Ocean City Reef Foundation

Equipment will be used in the construction of artificial reefs

Fascan International announced today it will donate five electric cranes to the Ocean City Reef Foundation (OCRF) of Ocean City, Md.

Valued at close to $290,000, the cranes will be used by OCRF to load reef building materials onto barges for off load at the reef sites several miles off shore and in other ways that further the mission of the organization.

Reef building materials, which can range from scrap iron and concrete to boats and other vessels, rest on the ocean floor and become the starting point for a reef community. Mussels, sponges and corals use the new material as a foundation to create a living reef which in turn hosts populations of fish, lobsters, crabs and shrimp that feed on the reef and are food for other sea life.

As part of the contribution, Fascan dealer Crane Specialists, Inc. of Manheim, Pa., will maintain the cranes to keep them operational while in OCRF’s service.

“We’re overwhelmed by this donation,” says Monty Hawkins, OCRF’s director. “These cranes will make it easier for us to not only build the aquatic ecosystem, but also stimulate economic growth for our area in the form of diving, recreational fishing and eco-tourism.”

“We saw an opportunity to match equipment with an organization that needed it,” says Bernie Faloney, Fascan CEO. “It’s a great thing when businesses can work together to share resources—especially when it benefits the larger community.”

Fascan Closes a Successful Con Expo 2017

Fascan International drew an enthusiastic response to its exhibit during the 2017 Con Expo trade show in Las Vegas, March 7-11. Fascan displayed a variety of light-to-heavy-duty articulating crane of different lifting and reaching capacities.

The show, which covered some 2.5 million square feet of exhibitor space, drew more than 120,000 visitors. Attendees that stopped by the Fascan site showed special interest in Fascan's largest crane, the F2150 RAL, with a maximum lifting capacity of 160 tm.

In addition to the large capacity equipment models, one of the most sought-after features this year was the newest generation of telematics --the use of cloud-based computer technology to coordinate wireless communications and reporting between equipment and its owners and operators.

These systems, like the Fassi IoC system, manages all of the information available from the operation and location of the crane, to maintenance and usage statuses, to the overall performance status of the machine.

"Crane operators used to have to keep tabs on these kinds of things using a pencil and a logbook," said Bernie Faloney, president and CEO of Fascan. "Now, cranes can report on themselves, relaying their own updates about their overall performance and status."

Con Expo is one of the largest exhibitions of heavy equipment in the world. It is held every three years for the construction and concrete industries.

New boom truck lifts drywall—and raises diabetes awareness

Salem, Oregon-based Dallwig Brothers Building Supply added a new boom truck to its fleet that will not only help builders, but will also serve as a visible tool for public awareness campaign in the fight against Type I diabetes.

Dallwig Brothers commissioned the truck, a 2016 Western Star 4700SB with a Fassi 360SE.24 FSC-LR wallboard crane, because of a close family connection to the disease: Clayton Dallwig-Black, grandson of Susan Dallwig, the company's owner, was diagnosed with T1D in 2009.

Dallwig Brothers unveiled the bright blue boom truck and presented a check for $50,000 to the Oregon/SW Washington Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) at a ceremony on February 17. Dallwig Brothers has also pledged an annual donation of 25 cents for every mile the new truck is on the road.

The boom truck was designed and constructed by Baltimore-based Fascan International, the U.S. distributor of Fassi articulating cranes, and Wisconsin-based V&H Inc.- Heavy Trucks. It is a 2016 Western Star 4700SB with a 450 HP DD13 Engine, equipped with a Fassi 360SE.24 FSC-LR wallboard crane with a lifting capacity of 2500lbs @ 59'2".
