Further deliveries have started arriving at Southern Cranes & Access Ltd as the company continues to build a fleet of ‘refinery ready’ Liebherrs.
The West Sussex company pledged in 2022 that all new models from the manufacturer would be equipped with engine shut-down refinery kits. It took delivery of the first – an LTM 1150-5.3 with double fly jib and Variobase® outrigger set-up – just under a year ago, followed in November by an LTM 1300-6.3 which was the first in the UK and the first to be kitted out in the new branding and livery being rolled out across the fleet.
An LTM1070-4.2 arrived in January to kick-start 2023 deliveries. It sports the latest technology including the TELEMATIK single-cylinder telescoping system,while the ability to carry most of its ballast on the road means the crane can get to work immediately it arrives on site.
An LTM1110-5.1 with fly jib and hydraulic offset has just arrived at the customer and the momentum will continue in the coming months with a further threemachines earmarked for delivery.
COMING SOON: Other refinery-equipped machinesdue in are an LTM1055-3.1 and two LTM1040-2.1models.
Southern Cranes & Access is a family-run business headquartered at Horsham and working around London and the South-East. It runs a fleet including telescopic, mobile tower and spider cranes as well as telehandlers and powered access equipment.
Kelvin Prince, Director at Southern Cranes & Access, commented: ‘We are pleased to take delivery of yet more Liebherr cranes and look forward to the remaining models arriving soon. All of the Liebherr machines are the strongest in their class and will complement our fleet tremendously moving forward’.
