Fix that crane

December 1, 2004  

Parts wear out, especially when you're lifting hundreds of tons at a time. Here, workers are replacing the cables that do some of the heaviest lifting on the job. Though extremely strong, cables can stretch and lose their strength.

Crews splice new cable on to the D.B. General. The incredible loads lifted by the cranes, require regular cable replacement.
