Liebherr has built and shipped its 2,000th 30 tonne, two axle LTM 1030 All Terrain crane making it one of the most successful cranes ever built in terms of unit sales.
The 2,000th unit was sold to Warnowkran Kranservice of Rostock, Northern Germany, to replace a 20 year old Liebherr LTM 1025.
The first LTM1030 – the LTM 1030/2 – was launched at Intermat back in 1997. It was the first mobile crane to be equipped with data bus transfer technology and its redesigned cab would pave the way for future cab layout, with its display units arranged in a semi-circle, as well as making use of a film type keyboard.
The 30 metre four section telescopic boom with its 15 metre swing away extension, can achieve heights under hook of up to 44 metres and a maximum radius of 40 metres.
Warnowkran was established in 1995 and its all Liebherr fleet is topped by a 100 tonner. Willfried Lehmann, a partner in the company said: “My drivers want Liebherr cranes and the after-sales service is unequalled. The relationship with Liebherr’s customer service team also works extremely well.”
