Sims First to take Delivery of Liebherr Unplugged

Crane with men

Sims Crane & Equipment has taken delivery of Liebherr’s new LR 1250.1 Unplugged crawler crane. The battery-powered model is the first in the Unplugged series to be sold in the U.S. East Coast region. It offers the same performance as the conventional version, while putting off zero emissions and minimal noise. Like the other models in the Unplugged series, the LR 1250.1 can operate via battery (unplugged) or plugged in. Battery life is approximately eight hours, depending on the workload.

A welcome addition

Sims’ new Liebherr 1250.1 crane will include a 242-foot main boom and 311-foot luffing jib with auxiliary tip. The crane is expected to arrive this summer.

Jackson Sims, Owner / VP sales / Market Development at Sims Crane, noted “We are honored to partner with Liebherr and be on the forefront to serve a vastly growing need for alternative energy to Sims' ever-growing customer base.”
