Liebherr LTM 1300-6.3 for crane rental company Xin-Hong in Taiwan

Taiwan-based Xin-Hong Crane Engineering Co Ltd has taken delivery of its third Liebherr crane, the LTM 1300-6.3. This is the first 300-t crane in the rental company’s fleet.

Featuring a 90-m-long boom and high lifting capacities, the LTM 1300-6.3 is ideal for applications that require increasingly high hook heights. The crane can carry its 90-m telescopic boom with a 12-t axle load on public roads. In addition, this fast-erecting crane offers compact ballast options, thanks to the VarioBallast and flexible VarioBase support technology. 

Whether for semiconductors or high-tech microchips, the production facilities of the Taiwanese IT industry are becoming increasingly taller. “The LTM 1300-6.3 is therefore particularly suitable for our planned operations in science parks, but also on construction sites, in refineries and power stations,” said Chien-Min Wu, owner and CEO of Xin-Hong.

“It’s a versatile six-axle crane with an excellent telescopic boom and outstanding capacities. With the new mobile crane, we now also have a new flagship for our fleet, which has a considerable resale value.” 

The story of Xin-Hong began with just one forklift truck in 2003. As the company grew, it branched out into traditional transport work and now has 120 employees in both Taiwan and mainland China. Xin-Hong’s fleet is used for traditional lifting tasks as well as challenging crane jobs. The company added its first Liebherr crane, an LTM 1230-5.1, to its portfolio in 2023.
