10th Liebherr for Johnston Rigging

Scottish crane rental and steel erection company Johnston Rigging Fife has taken delivery of a 40 tonne LTM 1040-2.1 All Terrain crane, the tenth Liebherr crane to join the fleet.

The two axle crane has a four section, 35 metre full power main boom which can handle 7.4 tonnes at full extension or take 1.1 tonnes out to its maximum radius of 31 metres. A 9.5 metre swingaway extension takes the maximum tip height to almost 44 metres.

We operate in a fast paced, demanding environment and therefore must ensure we operate reliable kit and that’s why we’ve stuck by Liebherr over the years.”
