The eight-axle LTM 1500-8.1 has a seven-section 84-metre telescopic main boom, 165 tonnes of counterweight and a 91-metre fixed fly. It can lift to a height of 142 meters and out to a radius of 108 metres.

The new crane joins a King Lifting fleet that already has 22 Liebherrs, including two others of this size.

King Lifting heavy cranes director Steve Wathen said:  “We are delighted to take delivery of our third LTM1500-8.1 mobile all terrain crane. The addition of this crane type demonstrates our commitment to our clients across the UK to further strengthen our levels of service and availability. Our heavy crane department has grown significantly over the past three years and we thank our clients for their continued support. This purchase further strengthens King Lifting‘s position within the UK heavy crane rental sector.”
