First LTM 1120s in Iberia

Two Spanish crane rental companies - Grúas Aguilar and Quality Grúas - plus Portuguese based Transgrua have taken delivery of the first 120 tonne Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1 All Terrain cranes to arrive in the Iberian Peninsula.

Launched last year, the four axle crane features a seven section 66 metre main boom topped by a 10.8 to 19 metre bi-fold swingaway extension, which offsets by up to 40 degrees. A seven metre insert extends the maximum tip height to more than 94 metres and offers a maximum radius of 64 metres. Features include the company’s VarioBallast and VarioBase systems.

Luis Aguilar, owner of Madrid based Grúas Aguilar, which was founded in 1968, said: "With the LTM 1120-4.1, we at Grúas Aguilar can carry out work for which larger cranes were previously required and which was naturally more costly to use. The new compact four axle makes it easier for us to transport and access sites. We also appreciate the safety that a brand like Liebherr offers us and the trust that has grown as a result of decades of good experience and excellent after sales service.”

Mario Magdaleno, owner of Barcelona based Quality Grúas, added: “We want to make the LTM 1120-4.1 the flagship of our company. It will allow us to carry out projects that we have not been able to do before, and it will strengthen some of our areas, such as tower crane assembly."

Finally, Transgrua owner Henrique Lourenço, concluded: "The acquisition of the Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1 meant the addition to our fleet of a versatile crane with an exceptional boom length, especially in combination with double folding jib. Thus, it will play a very important role for us in the field of assembly and disassembly of tower cranes."
