Specialty Equipment

Depending on the situation, NessCampell has a variety of options when it comes to lifting or moving objects when cranes aren’t appropriate. Our rigging division is fully-outfitted for your commercial, industrial, or manufacturing moves. This includes specialty equipment that is made for special moves: tri-liters, twinlifts, and versa-lifters.

This customizable and adaptable machinery gives NessCampbell several ways to transport heavy machinery throughout your facility, out to one of our heavy haulers for transport to a new facility, or delivery of materials. Used primarily on asphalt or cement, this rigging equipment can be used on other surfaces.


The tri-lifter has three separate methods for moving client equipment: acting as a forklift, attaching a boom or jib for overhead picking abilities, and using the top of the machine as a platform. This versatility makes the tri-lifter a valuable machine to have for industrial or manufacturing moves and installations.

For example, the platform top is ideal for bridge crane installations, lifting the equipment into place. These riggers – which can lift up to 100 tons – are also commonly used to move press brakes, shears, and CNC machinery. But it also has a light touch and can move or place more specialized equipment, such as MRI machines and other healthcare equipment as well as vaults, pumps, transformers, generators, and more.
As the name suggests, twinlifts offer two different ways of lifting objects. With the forklift attachment, the twinlift can lift, move, and place machinery, equipment, and other objects with ease. When outfitted with a telescoping boom attachment, this equipment is especially useful when needing to reach higher areas. This could be the second story of a building or mezzanine areas.

The twinlift can also be outfitted with a winch for lowering objects. Depending on where the twinlift is positioned, it can provide an incredible amount of coverage during installations, moves, removing of materials, reaching overhead areas as well is lowering items. With the ability to lift 40 tons, the twinlift is ideal for lifting or lowering pumps, motors, and electrical or mechanical equipment.


The smallest of our specialized rigging equipment, the NessCampbell versa-lift is ideal for smaller moves in tight spaces. But don’t let the size fool you – it can still lift up to 30 tons and perform the same work as the twinlift. But it’s easy maneuverability and compact build allows us to get the job done when space is limited.

With the forklift and boom attachments, the versa-lift can perform many of the same duties of the other rigging equipment. All of our attachments have been custom-cut to fit through doorways and other move paths and properly certified for use. The versa-lift can move or place mills, lathes, routers, lasers, punch presses, commercial laundry equipment, and more.

All three of these lifters are tailor-made for work inside warehouses, industrial facilities, or other buildings where traditional cranes just can’t be used. These machines are strong, versatile, and ready to help with industrial machinery relocation as well as placing delicate equipment.

NessCampbell has been providing lifting and rigging services since 1947 and have locations throughout Oregon and Washington. We have the equipment, the crew, and the experience to get the job done efficiently and safely. Getting ready to move to a different manufacturing plant or remodel your existing facility?
