HENDERSON, CO (March 31, 2020) Duffy Crane & Hauling climbed to the 26th spot in the Specialized Lifting North America TOP 50 in the most recent survey, published by American Cranes & Transport (ACT) Magazine.

According to ACT, “Rigging and lifting jobs are becoming more complex and require solutions that involve all types of specialized lifting equipment. From power plants to oil and gas, jobs continue to grow alongside the demand for equipment. Over the course of the last year, the ACT SPECIALIZED LIFTING 50 list has seen both increases and decreases across all categories.”

Jeffrey L. Cummings, president of Duffy Crane & Hauling, attributes Duffy’s steady climb up the Top 50 to its ability to capitalize on new technologies and the everchanging needs of its customers. “Our customers are constantly pressed to deliver projects that are executed to the highest levels of safety & efficiency. Our climb up the Top 50 confirms our commitment to provide services in line with the on-going trend toward shorter construction schedules performed with larger equipment,” Cummings added.

The continued climb up the Top 50 list is due to recent additions of equipment and branch locations. In 2019, Duffy Crane & Hauling made significant gains with the addition of it’s Intermodal Operations Facility in Eaton, Colorado as well as the roll outs of new additions such as the 600 ton Liebherr LTM1500, Terex/Demag AC220-5 (245T) and Kobelco CK1100G conventional crawler (110T).


Founded in 1886 in Denver, Colorado as a family owned and operated business, Duffy Crane and Hauling is one of Colorado’s oldest and most trusted companies. Duffy’s long history of continued success is due to our on-going commitment to our customers in providing innovative solutions to complex lifting and transportation.

HENDERSON, Colorado (January 30, 2019) -- Duffy Crane & Hauling, Inc. grew its range of hydraulic all-terrain cranes with the acquisition of a 600 ton Liebherr LTM1500-8.1 this month. The addition is another milestone in Duffy’s run of consecutive profitable growth spanning the last 15 years.

The Liebherr hydraulic all-terrain will be arriving at Duffy’s facility in March and will be immediately dispatched to customer locations in the region.

The two white booms featured here are our National NB127 boom truck and our Terex T-560 truck crane. They are working near Denver International Airport where the US Department of Energy “Solar Decathalon” is taking place.

The Solar Decathalon is a competition featuring universities in the US, Canada and Europe. Contestants are judged on the functionality, aesthetics and efficiency of the buildings. We worked one week assembling the buildings for Hogeschool Utrecht (Netherlands) and Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne (Switzerland).
