Autokran-Dienst Jaromin has taken delivery of a new Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 wheeled mobile telescopic crane. The five-axle 250 tonne machine adds to the Oberhausen, Germany-based company's crane fleet, extending it upwards. Previously, a 200 tonne capacity LTM 1200-5.1 was the largest crane in the fleet.
Olaf Jaromin, managing partner, went to the Liebherr factory in Ehingen with his technical customer service executive, Markus Rühr, to take delivery of the machine in person.
Jaromin commented, “Since customers want higher and higher lifting capacities, we decided to add to our crane fleet. On the one hand, the Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 provides the capacity we need, while on the other it is a five-axle crane and, therefore, still very compact.”
Markus Rühr added, "A six-axle crane would also have involved having to obtain more complicated driving permits. The long lattice jib on the LTM 1250-5.1, which can be lowered to 45 degrees, enables us to get around difficult edges and the lifting capacities are still excellent even with a large radius.”
The other major criterion in favour of the crane for Jaromin is the strong support provided by the neighbouring Liebherr service outlet in Oberhausen.
Jaromin, a family-run business founded in 1982, now employs around 40 people. Its fleet includes 13 telescopic mobile cranes, most of them Liebherr, five mobile construction cranes, four telescopic crawler cranes and 15 mini cranes.
The LTM 1250-5.1 is the third crane model with the Liebherr single-engine concept. In addition to a multi-functional folding jib, a 50 m fixed jib is also available. The Liebherr innovations VarioBase, VarioBallast and ECOmode mean that crane operators can use the new LTM 1250-5.1 with even more safety and efficiency.
