As a Crane Operator I found myself frustrated with the typical technology we used to move materials on site. Beyond the point of making sure we are engineering safe lifting practices, the products we have been using through much of my career just aren't productive. Our typical trash bins are fragile. They have rigging on them that prevents easy loading. The loading height is high. And riggers jump in the bins with sharps and potential falls all of the time. Then the loads get stuck because they are overloaded and we shock load the cranes. The self-dumping bins are up to 5.3 yards (17,600 lbs of capacity) and any material can be dumped out by the crane operator without the rigger getting involved. Nothing can get stuck in them as it dumps out just like a dump truck. A good operator that can see the dumpster should be able to take it down, dump it out, and be back in less than two minutes. The rigger moves on and preps the next pick. 

Our 2.6 yard bin vs a 2 yard boat skip doesn’t even look like they are in the same class. They are so durable that you'll see capacities on our four yard bins that are 3 times the competition. This allows you to use them to move materials as well. Want to move 4 yards of pea gravel in 2 minutes for the plumber and free up your crane? We have that technology in the boat skips. Who needs to fly 13,000 lbs at at time? Avoid that materials placing truck. Place material with the tower crane and OVP.

All of these products we bring in are ASME B30.20 rated. The build quality is outstanding. If you just need them for a short term, we can rent them. Want to purchase them, we can do that to. We can take credit cards on site or via a Quickbooks invoice.  If the delivery is local, we'll include the delivery. 

We bring in these products for our own jobs and for our own use. We aren't just selling you a product because we can. We are selling and renting out the best products we know of on the market.  Code Compliant, safety and production married as one. We'll get you the best because we demand it for ourselves.

I started erecting cranes in 2001 for Northwest Tower Crane Service. After 5 years there I moved on to crane operating so I could have more of a home life. In 2007, after the Bellevue crane collapse, I knew that crane inspection was going to be a in demand business. I ran Seattle Tower Crane Inspection for 4 years and had 2/3 of the tower crane and construction hoist inspection market. The economic collapse made that no longer a viable business. So I went back into crane operation for about three years.

January of 2014 Dean Seaburg hired me be his Operations Manager. He had 14 employees at the time. It was clear that in order to grow we'd have to change the order in which contractors reached out to us. So we bought three tower cranes together. That structural change brought Seaburg up to 40 employees.

I started erecting cranes again in 2016. It was clear that if I was to own them, I would need all of the tools to erect them anyway. And as an owner/erector, I could give myself advantages in how the cranes are shipped and prepped, plus there wouldn't be the need for back charges or the other miscommunication that always seem to exist in the business. I love the idea of succeeding and failing purely due to my own planning. This year we delivered eight cranes to projects. I erected 14 cranes ranging from small self erectors to a Liebherr 280 and a Comedil CTT331 with 246' of jib.      

In 2017 we will be mashing down the gas pedal and I will pour my efforts into Seattle Tower Crane. We will deliver our first Saez Cranes and Forklifts. We will erect and dismantle many more cranes as I go full time in this effort. Seattle Tower Crane is going to move into the small tower crane segment aggressively with new tactics that change the landscape of tower cranes and wood frame apartment building in Seattle.
