Krandienst Schuch Boosts Fleet with New Liebherr Cranes

Krandienst Schuch continuous to modernise and expand its fleet with Liebherr mobile cranes equipped with the latest state-of-the-art crane technology.

Last year the company took delivery of two LTM 1090-4.2’s, two LTM 1150-5.3’s, one LTM 1230-5.1 and one LTM 1750-9.1. This year, the Schuch Group will receive five more Liebherr cranes ranging from the LTM 1090-4.2 through to the LTM 1120-4.1, LTM 1250-5.1, LTM 1650-8.1 up to the LTM 1750-9.1 to complete the order.

Tim Schuch, one of the group’s managing directors, explains: “The new cranes with lifting capacities of up to 250t will replace the older vehicles in our fleet. The larger cranes will expand our capabilities.”

Schuch is currently focusing on the renewable energy sector. “We will primarily use our new large cranes for the assembly of wind turbines, worldwide. Especially in this class, we are adapting to the constantly growing requirements of our global clientele through these new investments.”

Schuch highlights the LTM 1750-9.1 with its 800t upgrade, which has already been delivered, as well as the LTM 1650-8.1 on order with 700t nominal lifting capacity.

“Our key decision-making criteria were the high lifting capacities, even with a longer boom, and the high flexibility during erection and dismantling of the two Liebherr large cranes.”

Further orders for Liebherr mobile cranes with lifting capacities of 90 to 800 tonnes are already scheduled, with deliveries extending into 2024. “Liebherr has been a reliable partner for us for 40 years and we appreciate their quality and worldwide service,” says the managing director.

The Schuch group of companies has existed for over four decades and is now managed by the third generation of the Schuch family. Based in Gernsheim, 50km South  of Frankfurt, it operates six locations in the Southwest of Germany and is also active abroad in Europe, North America, Africa and the Middle East.
