Xin-Hong in Taiwan Selects new Fleet Flagship – the LTM 1300-6.3 from Liebherr

Xin-Hong Crane Engineering Co., Ltd. has taken delivery of its third Liebherr crane. The new LTM 1300-6.3 is the first 300t crane in the Taiwanese crane rental company’s fleet. Thanks to its 90m long boom and high lifting capacities, the mobile crane is ideal for applications that require increasingly high hook heights.

“Liebherr is simply the best. Not only their cranes, but also their after-sales service,” says Chien-Min Wu, owner and CEO of Xin-Hong, about his working relationship with Liebherr in Ehingen. The Taiwanese crane rental company recently took delivery of a LTM 1300-6.3. This mobile crane can carry its 90m telescopic boom with a 12t axle load on public roads. In addition to the long telescopic boom, key factors for choosing this economical, fast-erecting crane were its compact ballast options thanks to VarioBallast® and its 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. It’s a versatile 6-axle crane with an excellent telescopic boom and outstanding capacities,” says Wu. “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. Step by step, the company grew, branched out into traditional transport work and now has 120 employees in both Taiwan and China. The crane hire company’s fleet is used for traditional lifting jobs as well as challenging crane jobs. The company added its first Liebherr crane, a LTM 1230-5.1, to its portfolio in 2023.
