First crane to arrive in the £2m order is a three-axled LTM 1050-3.1, rated at 50-tonne lifting capacity. A four-axle LTM 1090-4.2 (90-tonne) and a five-axle LTM1110-5.1 (110-tonne) will also be arriving in the next few months.
This new addition to the fleet coincides with a new addition to the Dewsbury & Proud team. Jack Proud, grandson of company founder Tony Proud, has joined the company as sales manager having spent the last five years at Mercedes.
Managing director Tim Proud said: “The LTM 1050-3.1 is a very reliable, well-engineered and operator friendly all terrain crane which we use every day across a wide range of applications throughout the Midlands. The new machines will mean a third of our fleet is made up of Liebherr cranes.’
Dewsbury & Proud runs 40 mobile cranes out of four depots in the Midlands. It also has a smaller fleet of mini-cranes and lorry loaders.
