"We used the ML3k clamp to move and set granite from a WWII memorial in Worcester Massachusetts. This is one of the most versatile lifters I have ever used. Hands down the right tool for the job." - Jason Houle
“Setup was very easy. Before, we tried moving the blocks using other methods. The Multilift has saved us time and labor expenses. We would be behind schedule without it.”

"Bianchi Demolition, LLC was awarded the Demolition of the Onondaga Lake Bridge along the south shore of the lake. The bridge was built to carry traffic and pedestrians from the west to east, however it also contained the 36" forced sewer main on the south side which was the City of Syracuse's entire waste from the west side of the city to the metropolitan treatment plant. Due to the forced main there could be no vibration during the demolition and each day
vibration monitors were in place. If the forced main were to incur some sort of
penetration or separation the emergency out flow would deposit three million gallons of raw sewage into the lake per day. The structure was built out of bridge steel along with three rows of concrete panels for the decking. Each panel was three feet by ten feet by one foot thick weighing approximately six thousand pounds. The bridge was
approximately nine hundred feet long; each of the three lanes had three hundred
The estimate was calculated on rigging and removing one panel every two minutes with one operator, one hydraulic excavator and one laborer with nylon slings. Upon discussing our material handling needs Kenco representative Tracy Black, Operations Manager directed me to Gregory Cveykus, Director of Engineering and Design; collectively we opted to go with the multi lift mainly for safety reasons. Once we received the multi lift and put it to work, it saved a considerable amount of time and dollars. When using the multi life we removed panels without any laborers - just a machine operator and excavator. It took fifteen seconds per panel for removal and placement. This calculated out to be an enormous time saver. It literally cut seven eighths of the time out! What was to take six weeks took two and a half days!"
