two new cranes for Flossdorf 🇩🇪

Flossdorf acquires second fully equipped LTM 1650-8.1 from Liebherr

First use: 115 tonnes of heavy cargo loaded at the port of Andernach

LTM 1110-5.2, the first LICCON3 mobile crane, is the latest addition to the fleet

In January, a new Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane, one of the most modern powerhouses on the mobile crane market, rolled into Bad Neuenahr in Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany. Its destination: the company Dietmar Flossdorf GmbH & Ko. KG. The new arrival is the second machine of this type that the crane and heavy-duty logistics company has added to its fleet, significantly expanding its capacities. The convoy from Ehingen included the 8-axle crane, the transporters for its complete equipment and the escort vehicles, as well as a brand new LTM 1110-5.2. Flossdorf is thus putting its first crane equipped with the LICCON3 control system into service.

Ehingen (Donau) (Germany), 6 March 2024 – “We are simply very satisfied with our first LTM 1650-8.1, which we purchased almost three years ago. Impressive load capacities, high performance and great flexibility characterise this machine. That's why we wanted to expand our fleet with a second crane in this class, and in impressive fashion,” says Marco Flossdorf, authorised signatory at the enterprising company. “We use these two extremely powerful cranes on bridge construction sites and on wind farms, among other things. We also use them for jobs in industry, refineries and heavy-duty handling.”

From the outset, the task of loading machine parts weighing 115 tonnes demanded the full power of the new mobile crane. After departing the Liebherr plant in Ehingen, it headed directly to the Rhine harbour in Andernach. There, three heavyweight components belonging to a mechanical engineering company were waiting to be loaded onto a barge. Early in the morning, still in the dark, Sascha Vogt started his mobile crane at the edge of the harbour basin. The machine had been set up there ready for lifting the day before. Now the lifting gear had to be prepared to transport the massive cargo safely into the belly of the barge. The numerous spotlights on the telescopic boom and superstructure of the LTM 1650-8.1 turned night into day – a big plus in terms of occupational safety when handling loads and working in the vicinity of the crane.

“Liebherr always places great importance on safety, quality and reliability in design and production,” says Marco Flossdorf. “This also applies to the LTM 1650-8.1. Despite its impressive size, it is very mobile and flexible. VarioBallast® and VarioBase® make the crane safe in different working environments and allow us to use it in a broad range of applications. When making purchases, we also ensure that our machines fulfil the highest environmental standards and consume energy efficiently.”
