Nichols Crane Rental, Inc. continues to grow its fleet with its newest addition, the Liebherr LTM 1230-5.1 mobile crane. This is a result of Nichols Crane’s investment in the all-terrain crane portion of their fleet, with Liebherr being their preferred manufacturer. Because of the latest technology, flexible configurations, and quick set-ups Liebherr machines provide, Nichols Crane continues to turn to Liebherr when expanding their fleet.

As one of the fastest-growing crane companies in the Midwest, Nichols Crane Rental provides taxi crane services for projects across Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin with almost half their fleet consisting of Liebherr machines. Starting back in 1995 with only two cranes working on residential projects, their fleet has since grown to 30 machines, including cranes working on some of the most complex private, public, and industrial sites across the region.

The LTM 1230-5.1 mobile crane is best known for its VarioBase® support technology allowing for an asymmetrical support base. This, in addition to the machine’s extremely long telescoping boom, makes this versatile crane ideal for working at large hook heights with the boom fully raised.
