Crane rental company Marsh Plant Holdings has taken delivery of one of the UK's first new generation Liebherr LTM 1130-5.1 all terrains.

It forms a major investment in new Liebherr cranes for the crane rental house. Company chairman Geoffrey Marsh was a guest at Liebherr's mobile crane factory at Ehingen in Germany for the official launch of the model in June 2006.

“I was so impressed with the crane and it suited our plans so well for increasing the lifting capabilities at the top end of our fleet that I placed an order there and then.”

The LTM 1130-5.1, rated at 130 tonnes maximum lifting capacity, is now the largest in the Marsh Plant fleet and forms part of a significant order for Liebherr cranes, which also includes a third 100 tonne capacit LTM 1100-5.2.
