UK-based Emerson Crane Hire has taken delivery of a new 300 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2.

The new LTM 1300-6.2 is the largest in Emerson’s fleet. It has a lifting capacity of 300 tonnes at 3 metres radius, 78 m main boom and a folding fly jib that is hydraulically adjustable under load.

Power comes from a Single Euro 4 engine. It has the Liebherr ECO mode function to improve fuel consumption. Also fitted is the Variobase outrigger system which allows the outriggers to be individually deployed according to the space available and the capacity is then calculated automatically.

Liam Clancy, Emerson Crane Hire managing director, said, ‘’When looking to expand our heavy crane fleet we were extremely excited to purchase a new LTM 1300-6.2 from Liebherr. This addition to our range of cranes will help us further meet demand from our customers for heavy lifting across the UK.’’
