May 19 - In response to continuing activity, California based Bigge Crane and Rigging is adding to its crane rental fleet.

The company recently purchased a Liebherr LR1600/2 crawler, a 660 tonne crane optimised for wind turbine erection.

Both cranes are currently being rented at a major wind farm in the Midwest. 

Bigge has also recently purchased another Manitowoc 16000, a 440 tonne capacity crawler and added four new Liebherr LTM-1220/5.2, 265 tonne class all terrain cranes to its fleet, fourteen new large rough terrains, including four new Grove RT9130's and ten new Link-Belt RTC8090 Series II, 90 tonne capacity cranes.

Bigge bare rents cranes coast-to-coast out of locations in six US states.
