UK rental company John Sutch Cranes has taken delivery of a 90 tonne Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 All Terrain crane.
The four axle crane features a 60 metre main boom plus a 16 metre swingaway extension and is able to travel on UK roads complete with its 22.5 tonne counterweight, hook blocks, rigging and boom extension.
Managing director Hayley Sutch said: “We saw the LTM 1090-4.2 during its launch at Conexpo in Las Vegas. We knew then that this new model would fit within our fleet very well. The fact that it carries all its equipment along with all counterweight means that our new addition is ready for anything without the need for additional transport. This unit is the first of two LTM 1090-4.2s that we have ordered - the second unit will arrive in mid 2019 along with four LTM 1040-2.1s. Delivery of the latter will be spread throughout 2019.”
Liebherr area sales manager Steve Elliot added: ‘We are very pleased to have delivered this new crane to John Sutch Cranes. The LTM 1090-4.2 is a good self contained taxi crane. We have had a lot of interest in this new model since its launch, which is enabling us to increase market share here in the UK within the four axle category.”
Established in 1990, family run John Sutch Cranes is based in Liverpool, England with a depot in Manchester. The company employs 85 and runs a fleet of All Terrain cranes, truck cranes and self erecting tower cranes.
