Latest Addition to Our Fleet – 160 Tonne Liebherr Crane

The Liebherr 160 Tonne LTM 1160-5.1 is the latest addition to our fleet, commissioned in November 2014 as part of our fleet renewal and expansion program. Capable of lifts in excess of a 70m radius or placing loads up to a height of 90m, this crane has the following key attributes:
