UK based crane rental company Bronzeshield Lifting has taken delivery of a new 500 tonne Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 All Terrain crane.
The new crane tops out the Bronzeshield crane range and joins 30 other Liebherr cranes in the 60 unit fleet. The company has also placed a new order for a 200 tonne capacity LTM 1200-5.1 which will join the fleet in May.
Bronzeshield, which operates from depots in the South and East of England, ordered the eight axle LTM1500 with a fully loaded specification, including a seven section 84 metre main boom and numerous optional extras such as a 63 metre offsetable and 93 metre luffing jibs and Y-Guy superlift system.
Bronzeshield’s managing director Bill Frost said: “One of the many things we like about Liebherr is that they consistently meet their delivery schedule – when they give you a date, they stick to it! Couple that with the build quality, technology, reliability and superb performance right through the duty charts, plus an excellent after sales product support, and we have plenty of reasons to continue with this long and fruitful association. The 200 tonnes LTM 1200-5.1 we’ve also just ordered will add considerable muscle to our growing heavy lift fleet and we are confident that this new addition will fulfil all our expectations”.
