UK rental company Birmingham Crane Hire has taken delivery of its first Liebherr crane, a new 60 tonne LTM 1060-3.1 All Terrain.
The three axle crane features a five section 48 metre main boom, and a 16 metre bi-fold swingaway extension, providing a maximum tip height of 67 metres, and a maximum radius of 48 metres. With 6x6x6 all wheel drive and steer, the crane can travel carry 12.8 tonnes of counterweight within the UK’s 16 tonne STGO axle loadings. The company also specified the optional wireless remote control system and Liebherr’s VarioBase outrigger set up system.
Birmingham Crane Hire’s sales director Mark Weatherson said: “We believe the LTM 1060 to be the best 60 tonne capacity three axle machine on the market. We are impressed with the build quality and attention to detail and also the service received from the Liebherr sales team. This may be our first Liebherr but it will not be our last.”
Birmingham Crane Hire was established in 1981, and covers central England with a fleet that includes Spierings mobile tower cranes, along with All Terrains from Tadano, Demag, Grove and a Böcker truck mounted crane.
