North German crane and heavy haulage contractor Sönke Jordt has taken delivery of a new five axle 110 tonne Liebherr LTM 1110-5.1 All Terrain crane.
Managing director Tim Jordt and crane operators Johannes Astecker and Johannes Böhme-Stromberg drove to Liebherr’s plant in Ehingen to collect the new crane, which features a six section 60 metre main boom plus a 10.8 to 19 metre lattice bi-fold swingaway extension. Two seven metre lattice extensions can be added to offer a maximum tip height of almost 96 metres.
Jordt said: “The LTM 1110-5.1 will be added to our fleet as we have full order books and we have gathered some very good experience with its predecessor, the LTM 1100-5.2. The new 110 tonne crane’s telescopic boom is actually eight metres longer as it extends to 60 metres. The new crane’s performance is outstanding, particularly with the new trapezoidal support configuration which combines with the VarioBase variable support base to make this a very safe and productive crane. Safety always comes first for us. I am therefore also delighted with the ballast monitoring system on new Liebherr cranes.”
The Ratekau based company was founded in 1994 and in addition to crane rental the company also provides heavy haulage and industrial installation and moving services. Its fleet now includes 13 mobile cranes with capacities between 30 and 300 tonnes as well as three large loader /articulating cranes topped by a 163 metre/tonne model.
