UK rental company Davies Crane Hire has taken delivery of a 60 tonne Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 All Terrain crane on its 40th anniversary.
The three axle LTM 1060-3.1 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. It is the fifth LTM 1060-3.1 in the company’s fleet.
Davies Crane Hire managing director Malcolm Davies said: “We are delighted to have taken delivery of our fifth LTM 1060-3.1 as during our 40th anniversary year. The LTM 1060s are an essential part of our fleet often specifically requested by our customers for their boom length and capacity. The LTM 1060 is the best crane in its class so it is an easy choice. The VarioBase is perfect for those tight awkward spots that other manufacturers similar capacity cranes would fail to achieve. It is also a favourite amongst operators because it is so user friendly.”
“It is a great milestone to have been in business for 40 years and I could not have achieved this without a great team or operators and staff along the way. The crane industry can be a turbulent business to be in and there have been plenty of ups and downs. I have met some wonderful people in the industry and enjoyed great times with them and would like to thank everyone that has for being part of the journey so far.”
Liebherr sales manager Steve Elliott added: “We are delighted to have delivered to Davies Crane Hire their fifth LTM 1060-3.1 and congratulate Malcolm and the team on their 40th anniversary.”
