Set Win takes first LTM 1450-8.1 in Asia
By Alex Dahm09 June 2018
The Set Win Group in Hong Kong has delivery of its new 450 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1 wheeled mobile telescopic crane.
Alan and Raymond Kan, Set Win managing directors, commented, “The LTM 1450-8.1 exceeds our expectations. It was the right decision at the right time.” The crane will be put to work among the skyscrapers and restricted job sites of Hong Kong. Its 85 metre boom and quick set-up of the 8-axle crane are important for Set Win. Work will include tower crane assembly, lifting and placing steel structures and prefabricated concrete elements. Air conditioning system installation is another likely application. Alan Kan explained a further benefit of his new crane, “Another advantage of the crane is that not only can it be ballasted at the front, but also at the rear end of the undercarriage. That makes things significantly easier on constricted sites.”
Set Win has 25 cranes, 20 of which are Liebherrs. A new 500 tonne capacity LTM 1500-8.1 is also due to join the fleet. “The two Liebherr 8-axle cranes will supplement each other and form an unbeatable pairing,” said Alan Kan.
