Karl Scholl adds a Liebherr

Crane rental company Karl Scholl has taken delivery of a LTM 1070-4.2 mobile crane from Liebherr.

The 70-tonne capacity crane, which has a 50 m telescopic boom, will replace an older 60-tonne capacity machine in Karl Scholl's fleet.

Karl Scholl's Andreas Merkel said: "The LTM 1070-4.2 with a gross weight of 48 tonnes delivers benefits for road licensing and is therefore extremely flexible in use. The new ballast distribution now also makes it possible to reduce the gross weight to below 40 tonnes. That is very helpful for us since more and more bridges are now restricted to a maximum weight of 40 tonnes."

The crane will be used for assembling prefabricated concrete structures and hoisting air conditioning systems onto high buildings, as well as handling the heavy modules assembled duing the construction of transformer stations.

Based in Heidelberg, Germany, Karl Scholl operates 15 mobile cranes with lifting capacities from 30 to 300 tonnes.
