Germany-based crane and logistics company Henneberger Schwerlast has taken delivery of two new Liebherr mobile cranes, an LTC 1050-3.1 and an LTM 1160-5.2.

The LTC 1050-3.1 is the company’s third LTC compact crane and the LTM 1160-5.2 complements the fleet in the strong 5-axle class, Henneberger said.

Owner Mario Henneberger said, “With Liebherr, we appreciate the uniform crane control, from small to large cranes. This allows us to make optimum use of our driving personnel in times of shortage of skilled workers.”

“The manoeuvrability and travel characteristics of the LTC are excellent. Liebherr has improved the crane in many details, for example the assembly jip with roller set and hook traverse. Various cameras make the operator’s work easier and more pleasant,” added Henneberger.

The company opted for the 36 metre Telematik boom version, where the telescopic sections are pinned.

“We use the LTC 1050-3.1 as a universal machine. It doesn’t just do indoor jobs for us,” added Henneberger.

Complementing the LTM 1250-5.1, the company’s largest crane, the new crane will be used in the assembly of precast concrete parts and heavy machinery, for example in the automotive industry.
