Its first LTM 1120-4.1 has already been in operation since December 2021.

This new model will be used for maintenance work in wind farms in Brazil after being exhibited at the M&T EXPO trade fair in São Paulo in August this year.

The 4-axle truck with a 66 metre jib is the 400th equipment from Tatuapé’s fleet. Tatuapé will use the new LTM 1120-4.1 for maintenance work in wind farms.

With a lattice jib, it reaches a maximum lifting height of 91 metres and has high lifting capacities even in a steep position. It has a lifting capacity of 120 tonnes.

“Compared to a five-axle crane we used for similar operations, we gain efficiency deploying a crane with only four axles: more economical repositioning and better access to confined areas,” said Denys Garzon Rodrigues, commercial director of Guindastes Tatuapé.

“We’re very satisfied with the performance and efficiency of the new mobile crane – just as we’re really satisfied with all our Liebherr products,” said Rodrigues.

The partnership between Tatuapé and Liebherr goes back several decades. The company has been active in the Brazilian market for more than 60 years, providing crane rental and special haulage services.
