AmQuip Orders Four Liebherr LR 1500 Crawler Cranes
AmQuip Crane Rental LLC, Trevose, Pa., has placed an order for four Liebherr LR 1500 crawler cranes from Liebherr Cranes, Inc., which is Liebherr-Werk Ehingen’s operating division in the United States.
This is the first order from a U.S. customer for the newly-developed crawler crane, which delivers load capacities in the 500-ton crawler crane class throughout its complete operating range, while having the dimensions and component weights typical of cranes in the 400-ton class.
The deliveries of the AmQuip machines will begin in the spring of 2017 with the first unit to be displayed at the Liebherr stand at ConExpo 2017. The remaining units will follow throughout 2017 into 2018. The machines will be the largest Liebherr crawler cranes in AmQuip’s fleet.
