Mexican crane contractor GMVykon has taken delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 wheeled mobile crane at the Liebherr site in Monterrey, Mexico.

The new nine-axle unit has a 750 tonne capacity and can travel on public roads with full telescopic boom, the manufacturer said. In addition, the LTM 1750-9.1 can install the rear supports using an additional telescopic hydraulic support on the rear of the vehicle without the need for an auxiliary crane, the manufacturer added.

GMVykon bought the LTM 1750-9.1 with a range of equipment, including Y-guy, a telescopic boom extension and a 91 metre luffing lattice jib.

José Cortez, GMVykon proprietor, said, “The modern design of the crane, the fact that it can be driven with the boom and its enormous load capacities and hoist heights, make it an ideal crane for us, since we operate on a wide range of sites in Monterrey and throughout Mexico.

“Mexico has good prospects with many large infrastructure, industry and energy projects. Modern, safe cranes will help us to complete these projects. We decided on Liebherr since Liebherr supports its customers with a direct presence and reliable after-sales service in Mexico. This made the decision to expand our fleet with a large crane an easy one,” Cortez added.
