Buffalo Hydraulic was awarded a contract to design and build a jacking system that
would provide 21 points of lift and be capable of lifting and documenting the weight of
NASA's famous Revolving Service Structure (RSS).
The weight of Kennedy Space Center's LC-39A was proved to be 5,280,000 lbs.
The weight of Kennedy Space Center's LC-39B was proved to be 5,342,000 lbs.
At 5,342,000 lbs., lifting/weighing LC-39B ranks very high on our list of Personal Favorites.
Our work on this project has now been recognized as a World Record for the;
'The Heaviest Object Ever Weighed'.
