Active Crane purchases LTM 1350-6.1

06 June 2019

Active Crane Rentals will be expanding its fleet through the addition of a Liebherr LTM 1350-6.1 mobile crane. 


The addition of the LTM 1350-6.1 will be largest crane in the Active Crane’s fleet. 

The company chose Liebherr based on experience and a reputation for excellent design, dependability, lifting capacity and reliability. Ease of operation, mobility and service also influenced their decision. When Active takes delivery of the crane in July, it will be the largest in the company’s fleet. The LTM 1350-6.1 is a 400 ton-class crane with a 230 foot boom and outstanding load and handling capacities.

“Liebherr cranes are reliable, where no expense is spared in creating the most operator friendly machine,” said Hunter Schmeusser, treasurer, Active Crane. ”This crane will add value to our business through the ability to quickly and safely build the crane. Our new LTM 1350-6.1 is going to be the largest crane in our fleet, as we continue to grow and supply our surrounding communities with the best service available.”

Based in Wilmington, DE, the state’s largest city, a bridge project, water plant reconstruction and chemical plant maintenance jobs are ahead for Active’s new crane. Steve Schmeusser is president of the company, which employs about 25 people and has 30 cranes overall, including a Liebherr LTM 1160-5.1 mobile crane.
