A heavy lifting specialist has reached the halfway stage of its 2023 investment in Liebherr cranes.
Based in central Scotland, Forsyth of Denny runs a fleet of more than 30 cranes and is boosting its Liebherr holding this year with a deal for four machines. A pair of LTM 1150-5.3 models have already arrived and will be followed in the coming months by LTM 1090-4.2 and LTM 1300-6.3 machines.
The 300-tonne LTM 1300-6.3 is said to set a new world record for mobile cranes, able to carry a complete 90-metre telescopic boom on public roads with an axle load of 12 tonnes.
The newcomers join a fleet that already includes a selection of Liebherrs from 40-500t based acrossForsyth’s three depots in Scotland and another in Northern Ireland.
Forsyth General Manager Mark Syme said: ‘The reliability and aftermarket support from Liebherr has really enabled us to grow and provide our customer base with the best level of service. We’re delighted with the recent arrival of the two LTM 1150-5.3s and excited to take delivery of the first LTM 1300-6.3 in Scotland, later this year’.
