Brazilian crane rental specialist Locar has added a new 800 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 wheeled mobile telescopic crane to its rental fleet.

The addition was motivated by growth in the wind energy industry and increased activity in mining and oil & gas, Liebherr said.

Commenting on the decision Amilcar Spinetti Filho, Locar innovation and fleet management director, said, “Despite the current political situation, we strongly believe in the country’s growth and so we are investing in the renewal and increase of the fleet.

“Our fleet of high capacity all terrain models is almost completely standardised with Liebherr cranes. The administration of a single partner in this way greatly facilitates our management, in terms of operation, knowledge of equipment and after sales service,” Spinetti continued.

Short set up time and good manoeuvrability were key requirements in the design of the nine axle crane, Liebherr said. It can travel with the boom on board and also has the Y-type capacity enhancement system for the main boom.
