Schick takes delivery of powerful Liebherr crane
Crane handover in Ehingen with Florian Maier (Liebherr-Werk Ehingen GmbH) and Anton Schick (Anton Schick GmbH)
Date 02 October 2018
Anton Schick GmbH took delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 mobile crane in July. “This means we now have the most powerful five-axle crane of the market in out fleet”, days Managing Director Anton Schick. The company based in Bad Kissingen, Germany will use the 250-tonne crane for major prefabricated concrete construction projects.
The LTM 1250-5.1 has already successfully completed its first jobs – including relocation supports and wall components for the construction of a new warehouse for an adhesives manufacturer in Bad Kissingen. The smart VarioBase® supporting system makes the crane significantly easy to use on constricted sites. Schick also ordered the LTM 1250-5.1 with a second winch. This enables concrete facades to be turned into the correct position in the air.
“Liebherr has been supplying time-tested quality for over 40 years and is also the technology leader in the mobile crane market”, says Schick, and continues: “In addition to technological aspects, the fact that Liebherr mobile cranes retain their value is another important factor for us.” The LTM 1250-5.1 will replace an LTM 1220-5.2 and is the company’s new flagship. The fleet also includes an LTM 1160-5.2 and an LTM 1060-3.1 as well as over forty Liebherr tower cranes. Schick has a total workforce of around 350.
