Four more Liebherrs for Wille-Krane

October 14 - As can be seen in the picture below, Wille-Krane managing director Karsten Schneider and his son Mario were welcome guests at the Liebherr-Werk Ehingen plant, collecting their new LTM 1095-5.1 mobile crane. Three more LTM cranes are already o

The company, based in Kiel, Germany, likes to have a young and modern crane fleet to work with, and for that reason its cranes are, as a rule, exchanged after six years of operation and the four new Liebherr cranes will be replacing older units. 

Schneider says: "The high lifting capacity of 95 tonnes, and the long telescopic boom, at 58 m, mean that the crane has even more operational possibilities. And, at the same time, with 15 tonnes basic ballast the LTM 1095-5.1 is economical and fast into action."

Wille-Krane owns a total of 23 mobile cranes, with lifting capacities of between 30 and 350 tonnes. Their largest crane is an LTM 1350-6.1 from Liebherr, which is used mainly for repair work in the windpower industry. 

The company has a workforce of around 50 and provides crane hire and heavy haulage services, with a fleet including 10 truck tractor units and 20 trailers in addition to the mobile cranes.
