Specialist Crane takes first new AT
16 December 2011
Specialist Crane Hire has taken delivery of a 40 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1040-2.1 all terrain crane.
It is the first new Liebherr all terrain crane the UK-based company has bought and joins a fleet of about 35 truck and all terrains.
Concentrating initially on nuclear power station work, the company's fleet has expanded to general crane hire.
The 2-axle LTM 1040-2.1 has a four-section 35 metre boom. A 9.5 m folding fly jib, which can be offset by 20, 40 and 60 degrees, gives a maximum 44 m under hook height. At a working radius of 39 m it lifts 0.4 tonnes.
This model has also been supplied with working area limitation.
