SCOREBOARD WINCH – TCF STADIUM
More often than not, Thern winches and cranes are used behind the scenes in an application, and the general public is none the wiser. Take, for instance, TCF Stadium in Minneapolis, MN, home of the Minnesota Gophers football team. Opened in 2009, it is the picture of a modern stadium, hosting hundreds of thousands of football fans every fall.
Sitting prominently at one end of the stadium is a huge scoreboard, a complex piece of equipment that requires regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly. So how do the work crews get their tools and equipment 140 feet up to the top? A Thern winch, that’s how.
For their needs, a small 4WP2D8 electric winch is up to the task. Unseen and behind the screen, with a little help from Thern, it’s “game on”!
