The Bigge125D - 7500 Ton Capacity Super Crane


Bigge Crane and Rigging Co. is manufacturing the world’s largest capacity crane at radius that will forever change large scale modular construction. Bigge’s Super Heavy Lift Cranes are set to be deployed at multiple nuclear power plant construction sites in 2011 and will revolutionize new plant construction.

Bigge’s Super Heavy Lift Cranes have unequaled capabilities—Bigge offers the only machine in the world capable of sitting in a single location and making every large scale super lift on a single or multi-unit nuclear power plant site.

Imagine the flexibility of having a crane hook capable of lifting any load, anywhere, at any time on your project.
