Three new Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 mobile cranes for Megalift
Megalift GmbH will receive three new Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 mobile cranes within three months. Company proprietor Bernd Preusse says that the VarioBallast® on this crane model was a major criterion behind the purchase. The three new 250-tonne machines will add to Megalift’s Fleet at its site in Bremen and close the gap between the LTM 1200-5.1 and the LTM 1350-6.1. Megalift has also ordered a LTM 11200-9.1 which will be delivered in summer 2017.
The LTM 1250-5.1 cranes were ordered with a full range of equipment and will be used for industrial installation work. Bernd Preusse explains: “Highly flexible machines are very important for our day-to-day business. Liebherr’s VarioBallast® delivers exactly this flexibility. It also reduces the number of ballast transport runs we have to make.” The LTM 1250-5.1 can be operated with two different ballast radii: 5.58 m or 4.78 m. The ballast radius is reduced by 800 mm using standard mechanically adjusted ballasting cylinders.
The LTM 1250-5.1 is the most powerful mobile crane on 5 axles on the market. Liebherr has once again used its innovative single-engine concept on this crane model. In addition to a multi-functional folding jib, a 50 m fixed jib is also available. The Liebherr innovations VarioBase® and ECOmode mean that crane operators can use the new LTM 1250-5.1 with even more safety and efficiency.
