Schlamann-Autokrane GmbH has taken delivery of a new Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 mobile crane.
Marklohe, Germany-based Schlamann-Autokrane has a new 60 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 mobile crane to replace an LTM 1045-3.1 and upgrade its fleet in the class between 50 and 90 tonnes.

“The LTM 1060-3.1 is exactly what our crane fleet was missing,” said Torsten Schlamann, managing director, Schlamann-Autokrane. “It is a compact, powerful three-axle crane with a very long telescopic boom. Its good off-road features mean that it will be a perfect supplement to our LTF 1060-4.1 telescopic truck mounted cranes, particularly for construction projects.”
The LTM 1060-3.1 has a 48 metre telescopic boom and can reach hook heights of up to 63 metres using a folding jib. It can carry up to 5.5 tonnes of ballast on the road, which means it can tackle a wide range of crane jobs without requiring additional transport vehicles. A special method of dividing the ballast slabs has been included in the design. This means that a wide range of driving configurations can be achieved quickly and easily, Liebherr said, It is designed to have compact dimensions and its Eco mode and Eco drive functions are included to make it economical to use.
