Berres Kranverleih GmbH Takes Delivery of New LTM 1160-5.2 from Liebherr

Berres Kranverleih GmbH from Kleinheubach, on the River Main, 40km southeast of Frankfurt, has taken delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1160-5.2 mobile crane. The company from Lower Franconia is replacing a 110t mobile crane with the new 180t crane. It will mainly be used for the assembly of precast concrete elements.

Berres offers customers from the private, commercial and public sectors everything to do with cranes and construction services. Managing Director Dorothea Berres explains: “We attach real importance to state-of-the-art technical equipment, expertise and adherence to deadlines. That’s why we decided to invest in a new 180t mobile crane, the LTM 1160-5.2 from Liebherr. This is a crane with innovative technology such as the VarioBallast® adjustable ballast radius. Liebherr also offers reliable and safe products.”

Berres operates mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 220t. “With the LTM 1160-5.2, we are closing a gap in our crane portfolio. It fits perfectly into our range. With the new crane, we are replacing an older 110t crane,” declares Dorothea Berres.

The tasks of Berres mobile cranes are many and diverse. Whether industrial buildings, residential construction, wind turbines or mechanical and plant engineering – they move loads wherever construction takes place. The new LTM 1160-5.2 is also intended for the assembly of precast concrete parts, some of which have large unit weights.

The LTM 1160-5.2 has a 62m telescopic boom and can reach lifting heights of up to 99m with lattice extensions. The 5-axle vehicle is designed for a maximum load capacity of 180t. With the VarioBallast® system, the crane masters high lifting capacities with a large ballast radius as well as tight construction sites with a small radius. The variable stabiliser base VarioBase® available as standard enables safe use on confined construction sites and offers even higher load-bearing capacities – especially in the working areas directly above the stabilisers.
