UK rental company Marsden Crane Services has taken delivery of a 40 tonne Liebherr LTM 1040-2.1 All Terrain crane with a second unit to follow early next year.
The two axle LTM 1040 has a four section 35 metre main boom which can handle 7.4 tonnes at full height or 1.1 tonnes at a maximum radius of 31 metres. Features include a Stage V engine, Liebherr’s VarioBase outrigger set up system and the company's remote control unit which provides operation for all superstructure functions.
Marsden Crane Services managing director, Lee Marsden, said: “We are committed to providing the best machines we can for our customers and it is our opinion that the Liebherr LTM1040-2.1 does exactly this. It‘s a great crane that can lend itself to a wide range of lifting operations but with the VarioBase and remote control option is has even greater flexibility. We look forward to our second machine arriving early next year.”
Established in 2015, Marsden Crane Services is based in Wigan, north west England, and was formed by brothers Brendan, Dale and Lee Marsden.
