German rental company Hüffermann Krandienst has ordered 20 Liebherr cranes topped by a 1,000 tonne LR 11000 crawler crane.
The company has already taken delivery of an 450 tonne LTM 1450-8.1 All Terrain crane and 750 tonne LR 1750/2 crawler crane, while a 700 tonne LTM 1650-8.1 All Terrain and a 1,000 tonne LR 11000 crawler crane is expected to follow in the coming months. The order also includes a number of Liebherr’s latest 120 tonne LTM 1120-4.1s and 150 tonne LTM 1150-5.3 All Terrain cranes.
Managing director Daniel Janssen said: "Our expansion in the crawler crane sector with the LR 1750/2 and LR 11000 units is aimed at covering a larger performance segment for the wind power industry. Liebherr offers boom systems specially optimised for this sector. The powerful LTM 1650-8.1 is to be used for the infrastructure segment and as a worthy successor to the LTM 1500-8.1. The LTM 1450-8.1 is planned as a fast-erecting crane for day to day operations and to support our tower crane division. It will be used at high hook heights for top slewing tower cranes. With its 85 metre telescopic boom, it is a very flexible mobile crane for tower crane erections, especially from 60 metres upwards."
"We work exclusively with Liebherr cranes in the large, crawler and tower crane sectors. We appreciate the innovative new developments and fast response times in the service area. The LTM 1120-4.1 is the most powerful four axle crane on the market and, at 66 metres, has a very long telescopic boom. The boom of the LTM 1150-5.1 is just as long. Starting this summer, this flexible all rounder will expand our fleet."
Established in 1913, Hüffermann runs a large fleet of mobile and crawler cranes with capacities up to 1,000 tonnes from its base in Wildeshausen, north western Germany. It also has a fleet of truck mounted platforms, scissor lifts and boom lifts, as well as a fleet of heavy transport and haulage vehicles.
