Bigge Crane & Rigging, San Leandro, Calif., has experienced such high utilization of its Liebherr crawler crane fleet that it has ordered 12 additional units for delivery next year.
“We’ve seen no downturn in demand for mid-size and larger crawlers,” said Joe Nelms, Bigge’s vice president in charge of crane rental. As well as renting directly to customers in California and West Coast states from its various regional locations, Bigge also rents to other crane houses nationwide. “Demand for our Liebherrs in particular is as strong as it’s ever been, such is their reputation.”
Bigge’s Liebherr crawler fleet includes the models LR 1160, LR1200, LR 1200 SX, LR 1300 and LR 1400.
On order for delivery next year are six units of the LR 1200 SX and six of the LR 1300.
