Grúas Moviles Mix adds Liebherr mobile cranes
By Ian Vallely21 December 2016
Buenos Aires, Argentina-headquartered Grúas Moviles Mix recently added two more Liebherr mobile cranes, an LTC 1050-3.1 and an LTM 1130-5.1, to its fleet.
Elida Mirta Emiliozzi, managing director of Grúas Moviles Mix, and her son, Sebastián Alejo Fernández, visited the Liebherr plant in Ehingen in October to take delivery of their new crane.
“This crane meets our need to update our crane fleet in full,” said Sebastián Alejo Fernández, proudly describing the new purchase. With its compact dimensions, the three-axle crane is said to be ideal for use on constricted sites such as those found in steelworks, power plants and refineries.
At the same time the 50 tonne machine is also designed for use as a taxi crane which means that it can be driven on public roads with a 12 tonne axle load carrying all its equipment so that it is immediately ready for use when it reaches the site.
Sebastián Alejo Fernández said the safety aspect was very important to the company, “We ordered our LTC 1050-3.1 with the lift cabin which gives the crane driver an excellent view of the site situation.”
The VarioBase system enables each individual crane support to be extended to any length while the crane work is secured by the load moment limiter included in the crane controller. VarioBase also delivers higher load capacities and a larger working area.
During the visit to Ehingen, Grúas Moviles Mix also took delivery of a used LTM 1130-5.1 mobile crane. Elida Mirta Emiliozzi explained, “We already have an LTM 1070/1 and an LTM 1100/1 from Liebherr in our fleet. The experience we have with both machines has been more than satisfactory.
“Our employees are extremely satisfied with the user-friendly and comfortable handling of Liebherr mobile cranes. That is why we decided to buy two more mobile cranes from Liebherr.”
