October 17 - As it modernises its equipment fleet, New Zealand based crane hire company Titan Cranes has taken delivery of its first Liebherr LTM 1350-6.1 all-terrain mobile crane.

The company said the purchase of the 350 tonne lifting capacity Liebherr LTM 1350-6.1 is part of a two-year business and capital purchase plan, which is designed to meet increasing customer demand for larger capacity cranes.

The LTM 1350-6.1 is one of four new cranes Titan Cranes has purchased this year, and it will be the flagship of the company's crane equipment fleet, said Titan Cranes ceo Gordon Stone.

"It will replace our current mobile crane, and although bigger than its predecessor, the LTM 1350-6.1 is an extremely versatile crane for its size and will cover a wide range of lifting work," he noted.
