Oregon, USA-based Morrow Equipment Company (Morrow), which claims to own and operate the largest fleet of tower cranes and construction hoists in North America, has added 27 Liebherr tower cranes to its fleet.
Morrow, which is also a Liebherr dealer for the US, Mexico, and Canada, made the purchases at Liebherr USA’s first Customer Day in May 2022.
Morrow, which already has over 560 cranes in its fleet, has added multiple 340 EC-B flat top, 470 EC-B flat top, 357 Luffing HCL, and 125 K fast erecting cranes to use lifting a whole range of items on industrial, commercial, and residential construction sites.
According to Liebherr, the 470 EC-B 20 is the latest member of the ‘tough ones’ family and provides a lifting capacity of up to 20 tonnes (22 tons).
Liebherr’s HC-L series cranes are primarily used in the construction of skyscrapers. A major advantage of the luffing jib crane, says Liebherr, is that several cranes can be easily erected in a small space. These cranes also offer the horizontal load path function, allowing crane operators to concentrate on positioning loads without the need to manually readjust the height of the load when the system is activated.
The Liebherr 125 K has been designed to combine the performance of a top-slewing crane with all the benefits and mobility of a fast-erecting crane. It is currently the largest fast-erecting crane on the market, and it was specifically developed for civil engineering needs such as housing developments as well as commercial and industrial building construction.
“As part of our continued commitment to provide the best quality equipment available in the North American tower crane market, along with our long-term growth strategy, we are pleased to have worked with Liebherr to put this order together,” said Peter Juhren, president and COO of Morrow. “Liebherr has been a great partner for over four decades, and we continue to reinforce that relationship. We share the same passion for the best equipment, backed by Morrow’s local network of service locations, technicians, and over $23 million dollars in spare parts stocked locally. Our customers have to come to expect the same quality and service wherever their project may be.”
