Northwest managing director, Bernie Johnson, said: “It is important to me to offer my customers reliable cranes and to have a service partner I can rely on. Which is why we have nothing but high quality machines in our fleet. It’s exciting to have the first crane of this type with us on site. The LRT 1100-2.1 offers a huge degree of flexibility in the field.”
