Heavy Rigging

Our specialized equipment has moved equipment weighing as much as 350 Tons. But that’s not all! We also are entrusted to safely move delicate, irreplaceable art and sculptures including the twelve Chinese Zodiac sculptures that are on the front lawn of The Speed Museum at The University of Louisville.

Padgett’s professional riggers are certified by their industry. In addition, all Padgett riggers receive ongoing training at Padgett every month on a range of topics that pertain to safe work planning, inspecting all equipment, use of all equipment, estimating load weights, load dynamics, center of gravities, tensions applied to rigging gear used on symmetric and non-symmetric loads, headroom limitations, load weight estimation and horizontal load movement, mobile lift crane set-up and load chart interpretation.
