Liebherr tele-crawler first in Brazil
By Euan Youdale05 December 2011
The first Liebherr LTR 1060 telescopic crawler crane sold to Brazil has been shipped.
Real Guindastes e Equipamentos, based on the east coast of Brazil, ordered the 60 tonne capacity crane following its purchase of its second Liebherr LTR 1100 telescopic crawler crane.
Quick set up times, easy transport and variable jib system, in combination with its off-road capability and good travel performance under full load, are key features of the model, said Liebherr. With a 40 m boom and double swing-away jib at 9.5 to 16 m, the crane can achieve heights under hook of up to 54.5 m.
The LTR 1060 will have a wide range of tasks waiting for it in Brazil. It will be put to work building sports stadiums, in mining, and the installation and assembly of prefabricated components.
