Liebherr investment for King Lifting
Bristol-based King Lifting has taken delivery of two new Liebherr all-terrain mobile cranes.
The new cranes are an LTM 1060-3.1 (three axles, 60-tonne rated) and an LTM 1130-5.1 (five axles, 130 tonnes).
King Lifting already has one LTM 1130-5.1, delivered last year, and ten Liebherr 60-tonners.
The company also has a 500-tonne LTM 1500-8.1 on order, for delivery in May. This will be the third crane of this model in its fleet.
Director Tristan King said: “Continued growth for King Lifting, especially in the heavy crane sector, not only means that we need auxiliary assembly cranes to support our fleet but also brings with it opportunities for further business with clients in that sector. This is our second Liebherr LTM 1130-5.2 and with its proven versatility it fits perfectly into our existing fleet.”
Meanwhile, Crowland Cranes has also added an LTM 1060-3.1 in recent weeks for its Bury St Edmund depot. Crowland only joined the ranks of Liebherr customers for the first time in 2016, buying an LTC 1050-3.1 compact mobile crane and an LTM 1060-3.1 all-terrain crane. With the new arrival it now has two Liebherr 60-tonners.
