US company McNally-Nimergood Co. recently expanded its crane fleet with a new LTM 1400-7.1 mobile crane. This Liebherr all-terrain crane delivers a lifting capacity of 400 metric tonnes or 500 US tons. This makes the LTM 1400-7.1 one of the largest mobile cranes in Michigan.
“This crane is a terrific addition to our modern fleet. Despite its relative size, the machine is surprisingly manoeuvrable”, says Jeff McNally, President and CEO of McNally-Nimergood. “We spent nearly a year looking into the purchase of a new crane. There are a number of things to consider when buying a piece of equipment this large.”
The new 7-axle crane from McNally-Nimergood has a maximum radius of 100 metres or 325 feet. “We had plenty of visitors during the assembly”, remarks Jeff McNally, who has been in the construction and crane rental industry for over forty years. “You could literally see our new crane from over a mile away.” After undergoing the commissioning procedure, the LTM 1400-7.1 has completed several jobs in the Michigan area.
