Hungarian crane service provider Ács-Gép Holding has taken delivery of three new Liebherr mobile cranes. The order included a LTM 1200-5.1, a LTM 1300-6.2 and a LTM 1500-8.1.

Ács-Gép Holding, based in Budapest, has a fleet of more than 30 mobile crane and 200 tower cranes which are rented out.

The LTM 1200-5.1 has a 72 metre telescopic boom and the LTM 1300-6.2 has a 78 m telescopic boom, making both models suitable for erecting and dismantling tower cranes.

László Ács, Ács-Gép managing director, said, “The new Liebherr cranes will enable us to erect and dismantle tower cranes effectively and very quickly at great heights. In addition, the LTM 1300-6.2 features the very latest technology. The single-engine concept and VarioBase are very advanced.”

In addition to erecting tower cranes, the LTM 1500-8.1 will be used on heavy duty jobs, including constructing motorway bridges, renovation work in power plants, applications in wind power and port work. The new 500 tonne capacity crane replaces an LTM 1400-7.1. The financing of the three cranes was provided by Deutsche Leasing Hungaria.
