Emerson's new 200 tonne LTM 1200-5.1
November 23, 2016
UK rental company Emerson Crane Hire has purchased a 200 tonne Liebherr LTM 1200-5.1 All Terrain crane.
The five axle machine comes with a seven section 72 metre main boom and a 22 metre bi-fold swingaway extension, complete with hydraulic luffing/offset by up to 45 degrees. It has been specified with Liebherr's VarioBase outrigger set up system.
This is the second LTM 1200-5.1 that the Dagenham based company has purchased from Liebherr, and follows on from the company's purchase of two 60 tonne LTM 1060-3.1 All Terrain cranes earlier this year.
Managing director Liam Clancy said: “An additional LTM 1200-5.1 was the right choice to support Emerson’s ongoing improvement in customer service levels, delivering on our strategic plan of continued growth within the crane market.
The popularity of our first LTM 1200-5.1 and the difficulty our industry faces with late changes to main contractor approved H&S documentation, for example with Network Rail, made a second unit essential.
And after a recent Liebherr induction, our operators were extremely impressed with the LTM 1200-5.1, including the capabilities provided by VarioBase, and we look forward to offering this machine to our customers.” SOURCE: Vertikal.net
