Crawler crane specialist Delden continues its substantial investment in Liebherr machines by taking delivery of its tenth LR 1160.
Based in Nottinghamshire and operating through-out the UK, Ireland and Europe, Delden Cranes has invested substantially in the Austrian manufacturer’s machines in recent years as it continues to renew and expand its fleet of Stage V compliant crawler cranes.
Delivery of the latest LR 1160.1, the tenth such model in its fleet, means in the last 12 months alone Delden hasadded three 137-tonne capacity Liebherr LR1130.1s, a pair of 160-tonne capacity Liebherr LR1160.1s, one LR1250.1 one LR1300sx.1 and an HS845 & HS855 to its rental fleet.
Delden’s newest LR 1160.1 was supplied with a 58.1mmain boom and is fitted with Liebherr’s Lidat telematics system, which is used to aid breakdown response and manage working hours, as standard.
Optional extras include an all-round safety camera system, plus boom head camera, aircraft warning light and a remote-control system for the operation of the crane when the operator is outside the cab.
Key to the company’s continued investment in Liebherr’s LR 1160.1 crawler crane, according to Sean Nyland, Managing Director, Delden Cranes, is its flexibility andvariable boom configurations.
“The LR 1160.1 combines state-of-the-art lifting technologies with the latest Stage V engine and with over 25 Liebherr crawler cranes in our fleet, this flexibility means we can offer our customers an almost never-ending number of rigging configurations and lifting options thanks to the inter-changeability of Liebherr’s boom and rigging system.
“The LR 1160.1 can also travel with the load on the hook, while Liebherr’s jack-up and self-assembly system delivers rapid set-up times. All of this makes for a highlyproductive and efficient machine, one that’s a great all-round package for us and our clients.”
