125 K excels in New Rochelle

By D.Ann Shiffler13 October 2021

A Liebherr 125 K assists in the erection of an 8-story residential project in New Rochelle, NY.

On its first assignment, a new Liebherr 125 K fast-erecting tower crane is working on the construction of an eight-story residential building in the New York metropolitan area.

“We bought the crane expressly for this purpose,” said Daniel Bossi, managing director of Extreme Construction, based in Hamilton, NJ.

It was the reach, usability and flexibility

The 125 K is the largest of Liebherr’s K series. Working from the third floor of a residential project, the crane towers above a Liebherr 316 EC-H tower crane working nearby.

of the Liebherr K series that won over Bossi and his crane operator, he said.

The set-up on site is unusual in that assembly engineers didn’t erect the 125 K on the ground but on the third floor of the building. This means there is no need for a recess in the floors of the podium to accommodate the tower of the crane, which saves both time and money.

In addition, the 125 K is high enough to be able to rotate above a nearby Liebherr 316 EC-H tower crane without any problems. Due to its higher position, the 125 K works above the the 316 EC-H by almost seven meters.

The crane is lifting and placing concrete components and structural steel.
