A seven metre insert can also be added to provide a maximum tip height of almost 95 metres and a maximum radius of 72 metres.

Managing director Peter Issitt said: “This new LTM1150-5.3 is a very welcome addition to our fleet. The proven quality and support provided to us by Liebherr GB over the years has given us the confidence to take delivery of the UK’s first and we look forward to introducing the crane to our clients throughout East Anglia. With the 29 tonne UK road travel counterweight, it will enable our depots to significantly reduce logistics when operating this new five axle machine."
