Netherlands-based Hovago Cranes has taken delivery of five new Liebherr all terrain cranes.

The machines include an LTM 1160-5.1, an LTM 1200-5.1, two LTM 1220-5.2s and a fully-equipped 500 tonne capacity LTM 1500-8.1. The latter will be put to work in South America, while the five other units are already on their way to North America.

Hovago took the decision to purchase the cranes based on a long term partnership with Liebherr and the manufacturer's global after-sales service, says Liebherr.

Hovago was founded in 1946 and specialises in the long-term hiring of cranes without operating personnel, but can provide trained operators and technical support across the world.
