Southern Cranes has added 2 more LTM1060s to its fleet. We took delivery of our first Liebherr LTM1060 with Liebherr’s unique VarioBase system in October 2015.This crane is proving popular due to its compact 3-axle chassis and a number of other useful features. It has a strong 48 metre main boom and can travel with all 12.8 tonnes of counterweight and a double fly jib.

In addition to the new LTM 1060, we have also recently taken delivery of two Liebherr LTM1040s. On this compact 2-axle crane, both axles are driven and steerable to ensure excellent all-terrain capability and manoeuvrability even on confined building sites. Maximum capacities with full and partial ballast give this crane great operational flexibility and with a maximum load capacity of 40 tonnes, the LTM 1040-2.1 offers outstanding load carrying performance over the entire operating area. A maximum lifting height of 44 m can be achieved with the 35 m long, continuously variable 4-section telescopic boom, which uses the hydro-mechanical telescoping system to extend to the required length quickly. The telescoping operation can also be performed under load. Other features include sensitive working by electronic crane control and LICCON2 control with mobile display unit BTT plus pneumatic disc brakes now fitted as standard, which means maintenance costs are lower and braking more efficient.

These new machines are available to hire now. Call us for more information.
