Wales, United Kingdom-based crane hire company Davies Crane Hire has bought a Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 wheeled mobile crane. It joins four other LTM 1060-3.1s the company already owns.

The three-axle crane is equipped with Liebherr’s VarioBase variable crane support system and a refinery kit, which includes engine shutdown and overspeed protection.

Malcolm Davies, managing director of Davies Crane Hire, said, “We are delighted to have taken delivery of our fifth LTM1060-3.1. They are an essential part of our fleet often specifically requested by our customers for their boom length and lifting capacity. The LTM1060 is the best crane in its class so it’s an easy choice. The VarioBase is perfect for those tight awkward spots that other manufacturers similar capacity cranes would fail to achieve. It is also a favourite amongst operators because it is so user-friendly.”

The crane was handed over to Davies Crane Hire after being on display at the Vertikal Days trade show in the UK in May.
