Steil adds 500t Liebherr

15. November 2017 | Comments (0)

German crane rental company Steil Kranarbeiten has taken delivery of a 500 tonne Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 All Terrain crane.

The eight axle LTM 1500-8.1 features a seven section 84 metre main boom plus Y-Guy superlift system, and can be equipped with a 91 metre luffing jib or a 56 metre fixed jib. The new crane went straight out on a job with another LTM 1500-8.1 from Steil to complete a tandem lift of a 185 tonne gas turbine in Luxembourg.

Marketing manager Stephan Fleischmann said: "The crane's design is mature. At the same time, however, Liebherr is continuously adding technological improvements and upgrades to it to ensure it remains up to date. One of the major positives of the crane is its good mobility on the road and on site. We ordered the 500 tonne model with the 'removable telescopic boom' option. Thanks to its resulting low axle loads, permits for travelling on roads can be easily obtained. We will primarily be using the LTM 1500-8.1 in industry, but also for repowering in the wind industry."

"The 3.5 metre section for the luffing jib was another important criterion for us. That enables us to achieve excellent lifting capacity values for intermediate lengths."

Based in Trier, western Germany, Steil runs a fleet of over 100 cranes with capacities ranging from 30 to 1,000 tonnes.
