Landwehr Construction - Celebrating 120 years of quality service

NEW Chaska Location

Our new Chaska location is here to serve your crane and rigging needs! Give us a call today to find out what Landwehr can do for you.

Landwehr Construction was founded in 1895 and began serving Minnesota and the surrounding areas with crane service in the 1950s. That’s five generations of excellence and experience in project management. We may have started with just a few small conventional truck cranes, but we’ve expanded our to more than 30 cranes and two locations. Our impressive fleet includes the powerhouse AC 350 that is designed for all terrains. We have both rough terrain and all terrain cranes designed to complete a wide array of projects. We can lift from 30 to 400 tons and our boom/jib lengths reach up to 415 feet.

We can be involved in your project as little or as much as you’d like. We are happy to complete project analysis and preplanning steps, prepare engineered lift plans, ready your site, and help manage and execute your entire project, but we can also rent you a crane with our crane services. Simply contact us and tell us about your project, and we’ll recommend the right crane for you. We know that when you need crane work, it is often time-sensitive. We’ll bring the crane out to you when you need it; there’s no transportation required on your end. Once we taxi the crane to you, just tell us what to do and our crew will complete the job. Our crane service is just one way that Landwehr Construction strives to go above and beyond to meet our customers’ needs.

At Landwehr, we also ensure your rigging needs are met. When you need essential materials transported for employees, our crane and rigging services will take care of the job so you don’t have to manually transport heavy equipment and supplies. We’ll help you find the best solution for every job, no matter what you’re lifting or moving. We can create customized rigging solutions, engineer lift plans, and supervise the entire process. If we don’t have the specialized equipment you need, we will get it for you.

With our wide range of cranes and locations in both St. Cloud and Chaska, we have a diverse customer base and we can work on projects big and small. We work with homeowners, multi-million-dollar contractors, and everything in-between. Whether you need us to quickly place something on top of a building for you or you need us onsite for weeks at a time, we are happy to help. We employ NCCCO Certified crane operators and riggers from the International Union of Operating Engineers. Our team is friendly, flexible, and customer-focused. We will also travel throughout the United States if needed. Whether you’re looking for crane service or crane rental, contact us today with your crane and rigging needs.
