UK crawler crane rental company Delden Cranes has taken delivery of its tenth 160 tonne Liebherr LR 1160.
The new LR 1160.1 was supplied with a 58.1 metre boom and is equipped with Liebherr’s Lidat telematics system, an all round camera system, boom nose camera, aircraft warning lights and a remote control system.
Based in Nottinghamshire Delden Cranes has been investing heavily in the renewal and expansion of its fleet with the addition of Stage V compliant models. In the past 12 months Delden has added three 137 tonne Liebherr LR1130.1s, two 160 tonne LR1160.1s, one 250 tonne LR1250.1 one 300 tonne LR1300sx.1 as well as HS845 & HS855 to its rental fleet.
Managing director Sean Nyland, said: “The LR 1160.1 combines state of the art lifting technologies with the latest Stage V engine and with over 25 Liebherr crawler cranes in our fleet, this flexibility means we can offer our customers an almost never-ending number of rigging configurations and lifting options thanks to the inter-changeability of Liebherr’s boom and rigging system.”
“The LR 1160.1 can also travel with the load on the hook, while Liebherr’s jack-up and self-assembly system delivers rapid set-up times. All of this makes for a highly productive and efficient machine, one that’s a great all-round package for us and our clients.”
