Bigge’s Houston Operation Expanding Rental Fleet | Construction News

Bigge Crane and Rigging’s fast growing Houston operation has added two new Grove rough terrain models to its fleet, the RT9130E and the RT9150E.  Bigge now has six machines between these two models stationed in Houston, to complement more than three dozen Grove RT890E rough terrain cranes.

The Grove RT9150 has the largest lift capacity for any rough terrain crane anywhere. With 197 ft. of main boom and a 69-ft. fixed jib, it has the reach and capacity of a 165 t class all-terrain crane in the footprint of a two axle rough terrain, making it ideal for work at refineries. The RT9130 isn’t far behind with a reach well over 200 feet of reach. It has maximum capacity of 130 t, and is similarly ideal for work in the petrochemical industry, as well as general civil and industrial construction projects.

Launched just over three years ago, Bigge’s Texas operation is its fastest growing, with nearly 100 machines in its fleet. “We are adding capacity as fast as we can”, said Brian Noga, Houston operations manager, “These new high capacity RTs have immediately gone to work, and have been eagerly accepted by our customers because all their attributes."
