The National Museum of Industrial History in Bethlehem, Pa, employed a Fassi F1950 to maneuver and secure a 115-ton Snow Horizontal Cross Compound Pumping Engine onto a concrete base in the museum. The pump was originally in operation at the York Water Company in York, Pa, from 1914 to 1956. The engine was so large that it took five trucks to move it from Lancaster, Pa to Bethlehem, said Mike Piersa, museum historian and exhibit manager. The museum had to pour 78 cubic yards of concrete for the foundation of the engine, and used the F1950 to lift the engine from the trucks and place it on the foundation. The museum is scheduled to open in 2016. (Photo courtesy of The National Museum of Industrial History)
Tim Huggins, Engineering Manager of Fascan International, Inc. did a great job with this design for Fassi dealer RMS Westminster in Westminster, Maryland and the end-user will be very happy with the results. The truck was very stable at 360 degrees while lifting a forklift weighing 10,000 lbs.
