German construction equipment rental specialist Hüffermann Krandienst plans to add as many as 250 Liebherr tower cranes to its equipment rental fleet in the next 18 months.

In 2021 it will take delivery of a total of 70 Liebherr tower cranes, all part of one order to establish a new rental fleet, the manufacturer said. The cranes in the 70-unit order will be a range of sizes, from the fast erecting L1-32 and K series, up to the 370 EC-B 12 Fibre flat top model with synthetic fibre hoist rope. Some had already been delivered at the time of writing in early July 2021.

In 2022 Hüffermann Krandienst plans to up the order to 250 units. Daniel Janssen, Hüffermann Krandienst managing director said, “We have always been more than satisfied and already know that we’ll be upping the order to 250 cranes.”

Hüffermann Group in Wildeshausen is an existing Liebherr customer. Its rental fleet includes mobile construction cranes, wheeled mobile telescopic and crawler cranes from Liebherr.

It took delivery of a 500 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 wheeled mobile telescopic crane in 2015. In the same year the company also announced its new electric assembly crane. That model consists of a Palfinger PK 53002-SH articulating hydraulic loader crane mounted on a chassis with outriggers designed by Hüffermann. Both the chassis and the crane are powered by a traction battery or mains electricity via a cable.

Also offered are loader cranes and truck mounted aerial work platforms. Services include heavy duty assembly, transport engineering and glass installation. Crane companies Autodienst West in Frankfurt and the Eisele  crane and engineering group in Maintal are also owned by Hüffermann, as is a specialist freight forwarding company for heavy transport.
