The UK rental company has decided to reintroduce the taxi crane back into their fleet.
Cadman Cranes LTD took delivery of a 50 tonne Liebherr LTM 1050-3.1, with Variobase®.
The three-axle crane features a four-section 38 metre main boom, plus a nine to 16 metre bi-fold swingaway extension. It can travel in the UK with its full nine tonne counterweight or meet 12 tonne axle loads with its 4.4 tonne fixed counterweight.
Steven Elliot, Liebherr Great Britain area sales manager commented: ‘We are very pleased to deliver this new LTM 1050-3.1, a capacity class which will fit nicely into the Cadman fleet. We’ve seen the crane grow in popularity with our UK customers. The LTM 1050-3.1 is simple and quick to set up and operate due to the roped boom technology. It’s a nice compact versatile three axle machine. The crane can carry all of its nine tonnes ofcounterweight in the UK.’
Managing director, Matt Waddingham said of the last delivery:
“It has been some time since the 50-tonne mobile crane was part of our fleet, and we have missed them. A true industry workhorse for decades, it has been understandably eclipsed by the 60-tonne range in recent years. We have four 60’s – we love them – but there is undeniably room and demand for the return of the 50-tonne mobile crane.
Gaps in our fleet lead to over-specification, missed returns and unsatisfied customers. We're here to provide the right solution so, just as we have done in the past, we will invest in the right equipment to bridge any gaps and ensure our customers get precisely what they need.
With the Liebherr brand we know we’re adding quality to a diverse, modern fleet of equipment and we are very excited to see this crane in action in the near future.”
