Just days after it was delivered, a new Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 telescopic wheeled mobile crane owned by Stevenson Crane Services was setting 90,000 pound steel girders. The new crane is one of seven such Liebherrs now working in the US, and the only one in the Midwestern US, according to the company.
The 500 ton capacity crane has a tip height nearing 440 feet and a 197 foot main boom, and travels with the main boom in a dolly for faster set-up and more on-the-job working time. “The LTM 1400-7.1 has the longest waiting list of any Liebherr all terrain model, and Liebherr has increased production to meet this demand,” said Ingo Schiller, executive vice president of sales for Liebherr Crane, Inc.
Donna Stevenson, president of Stevenson Crane Service, said she added the LTM 1400-7.1 to her fleet to better serve the power, industrial and civil markets. “We're always trying to provide additional value to those customers with special lifting needs,” she said. “Now we can offer Midwest contractors the money-saving technology featured in Liebherr's new 500 ton crane.”
Stevenson is a WBE/DBE full service equipment rental company offering a range of lifting equipment that includes Linden Comansa tower cranes; Terex truck and rough terrain cranes and boom trucks; Terex American and Manitowoc crawler cranes; and Liebherr all terrain cranes. Stevenson's fleet also includes Shuttlelift Carrydeck cranes; Herkules and Xena portable cranes; Alimak construction hoists; and Gehl and Manitou material handlers.
