Liebherr HS 8100.1 Duty Cycle Crawler Crane Utilized on Florida Coast

Brance Diversified, Inc. purchased both the dredging and lighting packages to equip their crawler crane.
  • Duty cycle crawler crane provided dredging services in Florida
  • Machine in operation 10-12 hours per day throughout duration of project
  • Reliability and production were major factors in choosing Liebherr

Brance Diversified, Inc. (BDI) spent approximately two months dredging 50,000 cubic yards off of a barge in Jacksonville, FL. BDI chose to use their Liebherr HS 8100.1 duty cycle crawler crane to complete this job due to its reliability, excellent clamshell barge charts and efficient production.

Brance Diversified, Inc. utilizes the Liebherr HS 8100.1 for dredging work off the coast of Florida.

“We chose the HS 8100.1 because of its powerful 523 hp engine, 61,800 lbs. line pull winches, low noise emission and low fuel consumption” said BDI’s President, Lance Young. The hydraulic crawler crane has a Liebherr diesel engine which complies with Tier 4 regulations supporting BDI’s mission of being an environmentally safe company.

BDI’s machine includes Liebherr’s GrabMatic® System which assists operators in clamshell projects. It visually aids the operator with optimized grab closing including level cutting and shows the machine’s inclination up to 40 on the operator’s monitor, as well as records cycles and turnover. “These systems increase safety, minimize rope wear and significantly increase turnover/production, allowing our customers to dredge larger projects faster and more efficiently” notes Wolfgang Herzog, Liebherr USA, Co. Crawler Cranes and Deep Foundation Machines, VP Sales South East & Caribbean.

BDI also added a lighting package for dusk/night work as the crawler crane operated for 10-12 hours a day throughout various light conditions handling materials such as sand and silt. “Reliability and production definitely meet and exceed our expectations,” said Young.
