Glenn Machine Works offers a variety of services including a full-service machine shop, a steel fabrication facility, millwright machinery installation services, overhead hoist systems & services, ASME code repair, modern hydraulic cranes up to 500 tons, and specialized rigging services. The company currently utilizes 52 cranes including 14 Liebherr machines with the new addition of the LTM 1150-5.3, known as the jewel for any fleet.
Tony Davis who serves as Business Development, Marketing Director, and Project Manager at Glenn Machine Works said, “The main criteria for this purchase includes the machines optimal mobility, chart configuration, and durability as well as Liebherr’s great technical support with our past purchases.”
With a maximum lifting capacity of 175 USt (150 t) and a long telescopic boom, the LTM 1150-5.3 is the optimal addition to Glenn Machine Works various jobsites. The LTM has an axle load of 26,450 lbs (12 t) allowing the crane to carry 19,800 lbs (9 t) of ballast on public roads. The LTM’s ballast also enables it to complete jobs without requiring an additional vehicle to transport the ballast, and the powerful telescopic boom can be extended with add-on jibs.
Liebherr has continued our single-engine strategy on this crane with a mechanical drive unit for the superstructure. The weight reduction created by the elimination of the superstructure engine is used to deliver a longer boom and more lifting capacity.
