Morrow Equipment Company, LLC recently added to their fleet with the purchase of 27 tower cranes.

“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.”

Morrow has been using Liebherr products for over 40 years and serves as an exclusive distributor with a wide network of locations and more than 320 employees across North America. 

Morrow’s established fleet is already equipped with over 560 cranes. Their most recent acquisition at Customer Day in May included multiple 340 EC-B flat top, 470 EC-B flat top, 357 Luffing HCL, and 125 K fast erecting cranes to be used for lifting materials such as concrete, steel, and lumber at various project sites.

Each of these cranes are designed to suit the modern world, allowing multiple cranes to work optimally in tight spaces on industrial, commercial, and residential construction sites. 

The EC-B series flat-top cranes are characterized by simple assembly, powerful handling drives, and flexible usage. The 470 EC-B 20 is the latest member of the “tough ones” family, and provides a lifting capacity of up to 20 tons (22 USt). 

Liebherr’s HC-L series cranes are generally used in the construction of skyscrapers. A major advantage of the luffing jib crane 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 combines 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.
