For more than 50 years, Active Crane Rentals has grown with the surrounding economy in the Tri-State area, supplying cranes, lifting and rigging services in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The company is about to grow again by adding a Liebherr LTM 1350-6.1 mobile crane to its fleet.

The LTM 1350-6.1 is a 6 axle, 400 US ton-class crane.

The company chose Liebherr based on experience and a reputation for excellent design, dependability, lifting capacity and reliability. Ease of operation, mobility and service also influenced their decision. When Active takes delivery of the crane in July, it will be the largest in the company’s fleet. The LTM 1350-6.1 is a 400 US ton-class crane with a 230 foot boom and outstanding load and handling capacities.

“Liebherr cranes are reliable, where no expense is spared in creating the most operator friendly machine. This crane will add value to our business through the ability to quickly and safely build the crane,” said company treasurer Hunter Schmeusser. “Our new LTM 1350-6.1 is going to be the largest crane in our fleet, as we continue to grow and supply our surrounding communities with the best service available.”

“Active Crane Rentals is thankful for being able to sustain longevity with the same customers we started out with 50 years ago,” said Karen Schmeusser. “Our diversity, reputation and commitment to our customers has allowed us to maintain these relationships. We are thankful for our faithful customers.”
