Sims Crane and affiliates, the largest private crane rental and rigging service company in Florida, took delivery of the Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 while visiting Liebherr’s factory in Ehingen, Germany, on Oct. 9.

The LTM 1090-4.2 mobile crane will be positioned at the company’s Atlanta branch.

“This machine will be added to Sims’ growing presence in the Atlanta market as we start to spread through the southeast," said Jackson Sims, vice president of Sims Crane and affiliates.

The LTM 1090-4.2 is a four-axle, 110-ton-class crane with a 197-foot telescopic boom and a maximum hoist height of 249 feet. It features the VarioBallast, an adjustable ballast system which delivers greater flexibility in action, and the VarioBase system, which enhances the crane’s performance, flexibility and safety.

The VarioBase ensures safe operation in constricted working conditions. The maximum lifting capacities are calculated individually and precisely for every situation. This ensures safe working practice with any chosen support base. ECOdrive and ECOmode reduce fuel consumption and noise emissions and are better for drivers and the environment. Outstanding mobility, power and economy make the LTM 1090-4.2 an important addition to the Sims Fleet.
