Welsh rental company R. W. Christopher Crane Hire has taken delivery of its first new Liebherr All Terrain crane - a 40 tonne Liebherr LTM 1040-2.1 - and has a 90 tonne LTM 1090-4.2 scheduled for delivery next month.
The two axle LTM 1040-2.1 features a 35 metre main boom and a 9.5 bi-fold swingaway and can handle 7.4 tonnes on the fully extended boom and or take 1.1 tonnes to its maximum radius of 31 metres. The crane is also equipped with Liebherr’s VarioBase outrigger setup system as well as remote controls.
Managing director, Russell Christopher, said: “We decided to invest in our first new crane from Liebherr as we now have a well established customer base in south Wales and the surrounding area and are looking forward to a long-term future in the crane hire industry.”
Established in 1986, family run Christopher Crane Hire runs a fleet of cranes with capacities from eight to 200 tonnes - including several older Liebherr cranes - from its location in Bridgend, between Swansea and Cardiff, Wales.
