Gillette Stadium & the Maeda MC285-2

The NFL Experience is much more these days than just tailgating and watching the game. It’s about Spectator comfort and the WOW Factor. The Putnam Club at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play is just that. The Putnam Club is an upscale entertainment venue that provides an unmatched game day hospitality experience. The East and West sides of the Putnam Club are each larger than a football field, with cathedral ceilings three stories high and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that provide exceptional sightlines and end zone to end zone views of the field.

Upgrades were made to the indoor Jumbotrons with the assistance of the Maeda MC285-2 Mini Crane. The Gillette Stadium Facilities Department removed the old screens along with the 1,800 pound frames using the 3.1-ton Maeda MC285-2. Once the new frames were constructed, they again used the Maeda to lift and place six 220-square-foot (11’ x 20’) high definition Jumbotrons throughout the Putnam Club.

Winkler Crane Adds New 160 Ton Rough Terrain

Winkler Crane, Inc. of Truro, Massachusetts, recently added the largest rough terrain in New England to its fleet of mobile cranes. With 195’ of main boom and 55’ of hydraulic offset fly, the three axle unit offers a total tip height with inserts of 311’.

Company President, Mike Winkler, is very excited about the flexibility of his new crane. “We have had great success with our three axle 100-ton unit. The carrier on the new 160 is virtually identical so we know it’s easy to move, easy to set up and simple to operate. This will allow us to compete with the AT’s of similar capacity but with the ability to fit into a smaller foot print. We can mobilize with three loads and have boom in the air in less than an hour and we can move with full counterweight once on site. It will also be a more affordable option for my customers vs. an AT.”
