Wasel Takes Delivery of MK88-4.1 and MK140 Plus from Liebherr
Liebherr has delivered two new mobile construction cranes to Wasel GmbH: an MK 88-4.1 and an MK 140 Plus. Based in Bergheim near Cologne, the crane company plans to expand further in the next few years. To achieve this, Wasel, a company of the Hagedorn Group, needs reliable and modern machines to meet the exact requirements of customers and to continue to drive forward its growth offensive.
Wasel GmbH offers a full range of services in the field of heavy duty logistics from its base in Bergheim, Rhineland, as well as ten other locations. Wasel is also a dealer for Liebherr tower cranes. The company currently has a fleet of over 700 machines and vehicles, including the latest mobile, lattice and crawler cranes, heavy goods vehicles, and tower cranes. With a team of more than 400 skilled employees, Wasel provides solutions for challenging tasks set by customers in industry, the petrochemical sector, and various other areas. Wasel has been part of the Hagedorn Group since June 2021 and is therefore part of one of Germany’s top service providers for modern structural change.
The environmentally responsible use of construction machinery is becoming ever more important for building projects. The MK 88-4.1, which features a maximum lifting capacity of 8t, scores particularly well in this respect. Thanks to its hybrid power concept, the crane can work with site electricity or another local power source without generating any CO2 emissions.
The MK 140 Plus easily copes with situations where a longer reach is required. Liebherr’s largest mobile construction crane offers a jib length of 58.5m in trolley mode. Luffing mode even makes a radius of up to 65m possible. A special feature of the MK 140 Plus, which can lift a maximum of eight tonnes, is its VarioJib function. This allows the crane to be operated flexibly in trolley or luffing mode, according to requirements. While trolley mode enables strong handling performance in trolley operation, a hook height of up to 94.4m is possible in luffing mode.
