Digging & Rigging is excited to announce the latest upgrade to our LTM 1750-9.1. This upgrade has extended the capabilities of this crane by improving the load charts across the board. Liebherr’s software update has increased the lifting capacity values throughout the operating range allowing the crane to hoist heavier loads. The new luffing jib configuration, which utilizes existing lattice sections, allows us to service 90 and 100-meter towers in the wind power industry.
Our largest all-terrain mobile crane is even more powerful!
Digging & Rigging has added the new Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1 to its fleet! The model was first unveiled at the CONEXPO 2020 in Las Vegas. This extremely powerful mobile crane boasts the longest boom in its class with it’s incredible high-lifting capacities when fully raised. As pictured, this crane is ideal for projects where access and space is limited. On its maiden voyage, the LTM 1120 was recently used to dismantle a rooftop shelter atop the International Square building in northwest Washington DC. Utilizing a max radius of 100’ and 3,000 lb. capacity, this 135 ton crane made seamless work of the project.
Digging & Rigging would like to introduce the latest addition to our fleet, the versatile Liebherr LTM 1070-4.2! This 80 ton, 4-axle crane’s features make it ready for a variety of terrains and activities. The LTM 1070-4.2 possesses 164’ of main boom and a mechanical/hydraulic swing away jib gives it an additional reach of 52’. This crane also boasts crab steering that allows it to maneuver into tight spaces and enables D&R to perform lifts for a wide variety of applications. Combined with its reach capabilities, our new Liebherr LTM 1070-4.2 is an ideal piece of equipment for telecommunications work or lifting roofing materials in a tight city environment.
Congratulations to Digging & Rigging, Inc. for winning the Essential Collaboration photo contest!
Digging & Rigging, Inc. transported this modular control building (70’Lx17’Wx12’H, 65,000 lbs.) from Ruther Glenn, VA on the Faymonville HighwayMAX to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. The building was offloaded on to the Faymonville ModulMAX and brought in to the Museum where if would be jacked up and suspended from the ceiling.
In 2014, we expanded our fleet with a new all-terrain LTM 1750-9.1. This 9 axle crane has allowed us to better serve our customers in need of a crane with a large lifting capacity, up to 900 Ton. This powerhouse is also capable of a max hook height of 500 ft. and a max radius of 370 ft. The on the fly crab steering mode allows this large crane to transition into tight work areas with ease.
Digging & Rigging, Inc. has quickly become proficient in industries that were previously out of our reach, including wind power maintenance. Typically, tower and crawler cranes are used for larger lifts, but require more time for travel, set-up and break-down. The LTM 1750-9.1 is mobile both on the road and onsite.
Most recently, this crane has been working hard on several wind farms in Pennsylvania. Currently, it is on a farm in Garrett, PA performing a drivetrain exchange, which requires rotor removal on these particular turbines.
