A Quick Pick Crane Service Acquires Liebherr Hydraulic Crane
The second largest hydraulic crane in the state of Connecticut when it is delivered, it will offer 230 ft. of main power boom, 439 ft. total tip height, and maximum horizontal reach of 310 ft.
A crane of this size has multiple applications in construction and industry. It can assemble large tower cranes used in the construction of high-rise buildings, bridge assembly, large precast buildings and structures, windmill construction, power plant construction/maintenance, and hoisting air conditioning units in hard-to-reach areas. Its mere size makes it a rare machine, and thus will be a regional crane traveling throughout Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and beyond.
The company will take delivery of the crane early this week and train directly with Liebherr representatives for the following two weeks. After that, the machine will embark on its maiden voyage to perform a job in northern Connecticut. It will then return to Derby as it awaits the arrival of its 256-ft. luffing jib and a potential public showcase, according to the company.
