Cranes Inc. , a New York City-based crane rental company, took delivery of the first in the United States Liebherr LTM 1110-5.1 mobile crane. The handover of the new five axle crane expands the company's substantial fleet.
"I'm thrilled to be the first customer in the country to receive an LTM 1110-5.1," said Cranes Inc.
In one of Liebherr's first handovers at ConExpo 2020, Maxim Crane Works took delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane during the first day of North America's construction machinery trade show.
Maxim Crane Works specializes in the rental and sale of lift equipment including hydraulic truck cranes, rough terrain cranes, crawler cranes, tower cranes, conventional truck cranes and boom trucks.
On April 1, 2020, Daniel Pitzer will change position and move to the Liebherr headquarters for mobile and crawler cranes in Ehingen, Germany, becoming CFO of the mobile and crawler crane division. His successor in charge of the USA market of the mobile and crawler cranes division is Pierre Bilgeri.
In 2013, the ALL Family of Companies purchased the Liebherr 1750-9.1, a 900-ton, 9-axle, 18-wheel AT crane designed to fill the gap between Liebherr's 600-ton and 1,500-ton ATs. At the time, the crane was only the second of its kind in North America. Today, ALL is proud to announce it's adding a second to its fleet, tabbed for service in the company's branches across the southern states.
Sitting in the cab of his Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2., a 300-ton (272 t) mobile crane, Raymond Gallagher maneuveres a 13-ton pedestrian bridge that will join two buildings. But he knows he has to rely on a team of people to make the lift successful — because he can't actually see the bridge.
Just five months removed from the conclusion of the acquisition, Tadano continues its integration of Demag mobile cranes into the Tadano family. From day one, Tadano has communicated to the industry that this is a major, strategic step forward for the company and one made to offer significantly more benefits to its customers.
