Maik Kanitzky, owner of the group of companies, said: “Wind power is on an upward trend in Germany and we want to be right at the forefront of it. That is why we are investing in the highest performance cranes with the latest technology which are currently available on the market”.
MaxiKraft ordered the LG 1750 with the SX3 system. This is the most powerful wind power boom available for the 750 tonne lattice crane. For the LR 1800-1.0, the company has ensured that it is suitable for universal, flexible use: “We have bought the 800 tonne crane with a complete set of equipment – with a luffing jib for industrial jobs and a special boom for wind power. The LR 1800-1.0 is a very efficient machine for all sectors with an extremely impressive overall design”, said Kanitzky. MaxiKraft ordered the LR 11000 with the latest system for erecting wind turbines, currently the most powerful available on the market.
Over the years, MaxiKraft has purchased a grand total of 660 mobile and crawler cranes from Liebherr, representing a total investment of half a billion euros. “Continuous new investments are very important to us to ensure that we keep our crane fleet up with the state of the art”, noted Kanitzky.
The MaxiKraft Group orders around 30 to 50 new cranes every year. The current order for 2020 comprises 31 mobile cranes and, in addition to the three lattice boom cranes, covers the whole range of crane models from 2 to 9 axles.
MaxiKraft was founded in 1992 by Maik Kanitzky as a one-man company. Its successful growth is reflected in its figures: Today, with its subsidiaries MaxiMum, Kranlogistik Sachsen, Treffler and Kranlogistik Lausitz the group has a total of 500 employees at 23 sites. The company specialises in all work requiring mobile and crawler cranes, as well as heavy haulage. Around 80 percent of its fleet is made up of Liebherr machines.

Liebherr will deliver the hundredth LG 1750 in mid-2020. Although there is a large number of crawler cranes in this lifting capacity class, crane contractors continue to choose the LG 1750 lattice boom mobile crane.
