Superior Rigging & Erecting Co. Continues Fleet Expansion with the Addition of Seven New Cranes

Expansion Includes SRE’s Largest Crane to Date – 550 T Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1

Superior Rigging & Erecting Co.  welcomed its newest and largest crane addition to date, the Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1. The 550 ton all terrain crane arrived at Superior’s yard early September 2023 and adds significant lifting power and reach to their already expansive fleet.

The Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1 offers a max capacity of 550 tons and max radius of 335 ft. The 8-axle crane has a telescopic boom of 279 ft, but can quickly be assembled to reach its max hoist height of 433 ft.  This crane can travel on public roads with its fast-erecting telescopic boom, four outriggers and the hoist winch, totaling 211,560 lbs and 26,450 lbs per axle, with an 8-axle load. Stripped down, the crane travels at 105,800 lbs, with an axle weight of 13,250 lbs.

The new addition will allow Superior to offer heavier lifting capacities and give them a competitive edge not only in their Atlanta, Orlando and Tampa markets, but across the Southeast.

Fleet Expansion Continued

The Liebherr LTM 1160-5.2 190 ton all terrain crane arrived at Superior Rigging & Erecting Co’s yard in July 2023. The crane was the second of several large mobile cranes Superior is adding to their fleet this year.

The Liebherr LTM 1160-5.2 provides a max capacity of 190 tons and a main boom of 203 ft. The 5-axle crane offers various boom configurations that provide a max hoist height of 325 ft. With a max radius of 256 ft, this all terrain crane manages high lifting loads without compromising its reach. By utilizing mechanically operated slewing ballasting cylinders, the ballast radius can be rapidly adjusted between two distinct configurations.

This crane is great for lifting and setting critical data center equipment like switchgear, compressors, PDU’s, air handling units and more. It’s also great for cell tower work, new construction sites and steel erection projects due to its many configurations and ability to travel on both roads and rough terrain.

Superior also added the Tadano ATF 100-4.1 to their fleet in May 2023. This all terrain crane offers a maximum lift capacity of 110 tons and a main boom length of 197 feet.

More to Come

Superior will be adding four more cranes, a Linkbelt HTC-86100 100T, a Linkbelt 120-HTLB 120T and two Liebherr LTM 1230-5.1. The fleet expansion comes with a steady increase of fleet utilization, expansion into new geographical territories and the demand to meet customers’ needs timely and efficiently.
