Largest Mobile Crane in North Texas Towers Over Arlington, Texas Skyline


Crane With 600 Ton Lift Capacity Stands Tilt-up Concrete Panels at General Motors’ Automotive Logistics Center Construction Project for General Contractor Bob Moore Construction

For a few weeks in December, motorists driving along State Highway 360 in Arlington were treated to a new addition to the city’s skyline: the tall steel boom of the largest mobile crane in north Texas.

The Liebherr LR 1600/2 is a massive crawler crane designed to lift heavy objects including machinery, windmills and concrete panels. The crane is rated to lift up to 600 tons with a maximum lift height of 187 meters, making it the largest crane of its kind in this part of our state.
