King Lifting puts big Liebherr to work
Crane hire specialist King Lifting has now taken delivery of the nine-axle Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 that was displayed in King’s green livery at the Bauma fair in Munich earlier this year.
King Lifting has already taken delivery of two 500-tonne capacity LTM 1500-8.1 cranes from Liebherr earlier this year. Now it has a 750-tonne class Liebherr as its new flagship. At Bauma 2016 this was the largest telescopic boom crane on show.
First job for the new crane was installing a 108-tonne storage tank at a waste-to-energy plant before then being deployed to carry out maintenance work on a wind turbine alongside a 500-tonner (pictured below) .
King Lifting’s LTM 1750-9.1 is equipped with 204 tonnes of counterweight, a 52-metre telescopic main boom with Y guy system, a 91-metre luffing jib and a 62-metre fixed fly jib. It has a maximum hoisting height of 154 metres and a maximum lifting radius of 112 metres.
A key feature of the LTM 1750-9.1 for the UK is that it can carry its entire telescopic boom on public roads under STGO (Special Type General Order) regulations with front and rear outriggers installed. The outriggers can be removed to lighten axle loads if required.
King Lifting heavy cranes director Steve Wathen said: “After taking delivery of our new LTM 1500-8.1 cranes in 2016 we have received a lot of positive responses from existing and new clients. By adding the LTM 1750-9.1 this further strengthens King Lifting’s position within the heavy crane rental sector and provides our client base a larger capacity crane when required. The duties of the LTM 1750-9.1 make this crane the strongest in the market against any other manufactures and was an obvious choice.”
