The “Left Coast” Lifter also known as the I lift NY” super crane┬áis a barge which holds a crane that was built to assist in building the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. It was used to place pre-fabricated false-work truss sections and then it was used to place prefabricated steel deck structure box segments that became the main span.

With a boom length of 328 feet, a weight of 992 short tons, and having an 1,800 short tons lift capacity (the weight of 12 Statue of Liberty monuments) it’s the larges crane ever used on the U.S. coasts.
