LTM 1100-5.3 for Sönke Jordt

German crane rental and heavy haulage contractor Sönke Jordt has taken delivery of a 100 tonne Liebherr LTM 1100-5.3 All Terrain crane.

The five axle 1100-5.3 features a seven section 62 metre main boom plus a 9.5 to 16 metre bi-fold swingaway which can be offset to 40 degrees and provides a maximum tip height of 68 metres. The crane has full remote controls, while other features include the third generation Liccon3 control system, Stage V diesel and Liebherr’s VarioBase outrigger system.
The handover

Managing Director Sönke Jordt said: “Leading up to the handover, we were also very excited about the new design of the crane in our corporate colours. Whether it’s the paintwork, tyre pressures, remote control key, navigation system or LED lights, we are very impressed with our new addition.”

Sönke's son Tim added: “When we saw the crane at the trade fair, we knew that this new 100 tonner belongs in our crane fleet. The crane is narrow, light and characterised by low axle loads, and therefore ideal for our purposes.”

The Ratekau - Lübeck - based company was founded in 1994 and offers crane rental, heavy haulage along with industrial installation and moving services. Its fleet now includes 13 mobile cranes with capacities from 30 to 300 tonnes as well as three large loader/articulating cranes topped by a 163 metre/tonne model.
