Nine new Liebherr cranes complement the British crane company’s fleet

The British crane rental company King Lifting recently took delivery of a new LTM 1230-5.1 mobile crane. A second will follow after its appearance at the Liebherr stand at this year’s Vertical Days in September in Peterborough, Great Britain.

In addition, the company has taken delivery of an LTM 1130-5.1 and two LTM 1060-3.1 mobile cranes, with four more to be delivered in the coming months. All cranes come with Tier 5 engines.

The five-axis LTM 1230-5.1 has an eight-part 75-meter main boom and a 11.5 to 20-meter-long, swiveling boom that can be offset by up to 40 degrees. It is equipped with the Liebherr systems VarioBallast, VarioBase Plus, Ecomode and Ecodrive as well as remote controls, a winch and a camera system at the boom tip.

Dean Austin, General Manager for Cranes at King Lifting, said about the newcomers from Liebherr: “We are very pleased about the delivery of our new cranes, especially the LTM 1230-5.1 with its market-leading performance class features such as VarioBase Plus. This additional investment demonstrates King Lifting’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint while supporting our valued customers by offering the most technically advanced cranes on the market with the latest safety features for working at height. ”
