Sautter Route 81 Emergency Service Response


route 81 news story

A fuel tanker carrying 7,500 gallons of diesel fuel overturned on the ramp from Route 81 to Route 322 in Harrisburg on May 9, 2013. The resultant fire melted guide rails and the steel in the 322 bridge deck above the crash site. PennDOT’s emergency service contractor, J D Eckman Inc., called Sautter Crane, who dispatched two 500-ton Liebherr cranes to the site. The team worked round the clock in an effort to reopen Route 81 at Route 322/22, one of the busiest intersections in the state. The Governor signed a disaster emergency proclamation and asked non-essential government employees to stay home and schools in the area to close to try to relieve the massive traffic jams caused by the road closures. While Route 81 should reopen shortly, repairs to Route 322 are expected to take two months.

“Liebherr makes the finest crane on the market; they are the Bentley of cranes,” said Bob Sautter, president of Sautter Crane. We think the extra investment they require pays off over the life of the crane and in the reliability we can offer our clients.” Sautter has Liebherr Cranes in its fleet ranging from the new 70-ton up to its 300 and 500-ton cranes.

A Holiday Lift

Sautter Crane once again lent its services to assist the City of Philadelphia in setting up the municipality’s official Christmas tree in front of City Hall. The Colorado blue spruce was spared when the rest of the landscaping was removed from the Spectrum in advance of the November 23rd wrecking ball ceremony.

Fairmount Park employees placed straps in the tree and connected it to Sautter Crane’s 60-ton Terex T-560, which prevented the tree from falling when it was cut. 60 MPH wind gusts contributed to the excitement of loading the tree on a flat bed for its ride up Broad Street where it was installed at the Dilworth Plaza on the west side of City Hall.
