Liebherr dealer and tower hire firm Morrow says it plans a major fleet expansion in 2014, with 56 cranes, worth around $70m, to be purchased or ordered this year, to meet growing demand in North America and Australasia.
At this year’s ConExpo Morrow made a major purchase, ordering close to half of its planned new cranes from Liebherr Group.
Horizontal jib EC-H models and luffing boom HC-L models were included in this order.
The rental firm said that beginning in late 2013 it had purchased a substantial number of Liebherr luffing boom cranes. These cranes were bought in order to fulfill the needs of its customers in high-density urban centres. Some of these cranes would be used for the first time in the Australian market.
