Digging & Rigging relocates the Lewes Swing Bridge


Early efforts to relocate the Lewes Swing Bridge, in Lewes, Delaware, to its new home off of American Legion Road were halted by weight and capacity issues. As Digging & Rigging has one of the largest cranes on the East Coast, we were contracted to lift the bridge from the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal with our Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1.

Custom Crane Models

Digging & Rigging, Inc. has teamed up with WSI Models to develop custom models in the D&R brown and tan color scheme. We have made these well-built models available on our Company Apparel store. We have also included the Liebherr 50th US Anniversary crane model at a discounted price.

LTM 1750-9.1 Upgrade

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!
