Active Crane Rentals Takes Delivery of LTM 1350-6.1 Mobile Crane

The LTM 1350-6.1 is a six-axle, 400-U.S.-ton-class crane.

May 31, 2019 –Active Crane Rentals, a supplier of cranes, lifting, and rigging services in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, is adding a Liebherr LTM 1350-6.1 mobile crane to its fleet.

The company chose Liebherr based on experience and a reputation for 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 U.S.-ton-class crane with a 230’ boom and increased load and handling capacities.

“Liebherr cranes are reliable, where no expense is spared in creating the most operator friendly machine. This crane will add value to our business through the ability to quickly and safely build the crane,” said company treasurer Hunter Schmeusser. “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, Delaware, a bridge project, water plant reconstruction, and chemical plant maintenance jobs are ahead for Active’s new crane.

“Active Crane Rentals is thankful for being able to sustain longevity with the same customers we started out with 50 years ago,” said Karen Schmeusser. “Our diversity, reputation, and commitment to our customers has allowed us to maintain these relationships. We are thankful for our faithful customers.”
