450t Liebherr for BKL

Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1

26. March 2018 

German crane company BKL Baukran Logistik has taken delivery of a 450 tonne Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1 All Terrain crane.

The eight axle LTM 1450-8.1 can travel complete with its 85 metre main boom in place, along with outriggers and winch within 12 tonne axle loads. The crane includes the Variobase variable outrigger set up and VarioBallast variable counterweight radius making it ideal for operating in space restricted situations. The crane was delivered to the company’s depot in Ingolstadt, southern Germany.

Site manager Rainer Speich said: “Having the new LTM 1450-8.1 in our fleet gives us even greater flexibility in ensuring that we provide the perfect crane for our customers’ projects. This is because for jobs like this where the full capacity of the LTM 1500-8.1 is not required, we can safe set-up time, trucks and we don’t need an auxiliary crane.” 

“The VarioBase variable support base, the VarioBallast ballasting system and the long, very strong main boom mean that the crane is incredibly flexible to use. We can get it into narrow alleys where previously the best we could offer was a 200 tonne crane.”

Founded in 1969, the family run and owned BKL Baukran Logistik is headquartered in Munich and has a fleet of more than 460 tower, All Terrain and loader cranes. SOURCE: Vertikal.net
