Ullrich Krane GmbH Collects new Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1
Ullrich Krane GmbH has taken delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 mobile crane. The 60 tonne machine will supplement the crane fleet in the segment between 50 and 90 tonnes. It is the 27th crane that the Chemnitz-based company has bought from Liebherr during its 27 year history. Ullrich has exclusively operated Liebherr mobile cranes since it opened for business.
“We have now closed the gap between 50 and 90 tonnes with the LTM 1060-3.1”, explains company proprietor Michael Ullrich. “We can use this compact 3-axle crane for a very wide range of jobs due to its high lifting capacity and its 48 metre telescopic boom.”
Michael Ullrich reports: “We have had a long, constant partnership with Liebherr, always seeing eye to eye and dominated by a relationship based on trust. Furthermore, Liebherr supplies the very latest crane and drivetrain technology. The latest Liebherr engine technology enables us to modify our crane fleet to make it greener. Reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions is one of our main challenges.”
Ullrich Krane GmbH was founded in 1994 and took delivery of four Liebherr mobile cranes in its very first year. Since then they have been joined by another 23 Liebherr cranes. This has also meant that the fleet has constantly been keep up to date. Currently the Ullrich fleet comprises eight mobile crane lifting capacities of up to 250 tonnes and six tractor units with low loaders.
The family-run company is looking at a change of generation in April 2022. “I am pleased that Holger Ludewig, who has been working for us as a dispatcher for 27 years, will become managing partner and take on responsibility for the company in this position. However, I am also planning to remain with the company,” adds Michael Ullrich.
A folding jib enables the LTM 1060-3.1 to achieve hook heights of up to 63 metres and radii of up to 48 metres. On public roads it can carry up to 5.5 tonnes of ballast with an axle load of 12 tonnes. This means that it can complete the majority of its jobs without requiring additional ballast to be transported. The 3-axle crane achieves its maximum lifting capacity when set up with its complete counterweight of 12.8 tonnes.
