Tower Removal

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

With autumn now upon us, and winter looming, all lift projects are chugging full steam ahead. Following the Bucksaw chair and haulrope removal in the last couple weeks, Sky Trans Manufacturing, a company from New Hampshire, arrived this week to remove the 
towers.

The undertaking was a three man job; on person ran the excavator, one person climbed the towers, and the third ran the torch.

Three of the four bolts that secure each tower to the concrete footings were cut with the torch, then the climber secured the excavator bucket to the tower. After the bucket was secured, the fourth and final bolt was cut, and when the tower was free Sky Trans used the excavator to lift the tower from the footing, and lay it on the ground.

In just three days, Sky Trans had all 23 towers on the ground and began towing them off the hill.

Danny Barker, our snowmaker extraordinaire, is already excited to fire up the tower guns over to Windrow!
