Denny lifting specialist places six-crane order

LIEBHERR has announced the first two cranes in a six-machine package have arrived at heavy lifting and haulage specialist Forsyth of Denny.

The LTM 1070-4.2 and LTM 1110-5.1 mobiles have already gone into service, with the remaining four purchases set to follow in the coming months, including a further three telescopic units and a second hand MK 140 mobile tower crane.

Forsyth’s LTM 1070-4.2 features a 50-metre telescopic boom and has active, speed-dependent rear-axle steering and pneumatic disk brakes. Because it carries all its ballast when on the road, Liebherr explained it is ready for use immediately when it arrives on site. The crane has been specified with VarioBase, a two-stage fly jib and refinery kit.

The LTM 1110-5.1 – the first in Scotland – is the smallest five-axle telescopic mobile in the Liebherr range but the Stage V-compliant unit is said to demonstrate ‘impressive’ lifting capacities with a 60-metre long boom and can carry its 29 tonnes of counterweight while remaining within Special Types General Order (STGO) regulations.

Forsyth of Denny’s Mark Syme commented, “There are many reasons why Forsyth’s choose the Liebherr product; innovation, driver-friendly machines and excellent residual values are but a few. It is however without question the unrivalled aftersales service and support we receive from the whole Liebherr team that makes our decision to keep buying Liebherr an easy one.”
