This Is What A Logging Crane Demolition Looks Like

On April 20, 2012 the Canfor Grand Prairie sawmill logyard took down this massive crane. No visitors were allowed to attend, but Canfor recently released video of the demolition.

Why'd the crane get demo'd? Well, the crane was 27 years old and it was only supposed to last for 20, so it had just outlived its usefulness.


Once Canfor stabilizes the loose Canadian soil with gravel and geostabilizers, ground equipment will be able to do the huge crane's old job.
