October 1 - Autokranverleigh Pengel has added a new Liebherr LTM 1220-5.2 mobile crane, to replace its old LTM 1160/2 crane.

The addition of the 200-tonne capacity LTM 1220-5.2 will significantly increase Pengel's available capacity. The company already has a job for the new crane, in the handling of several loads at a construction site on the A14 autobahn.

With a telescopic boom extension and a long swing-away jib system, Liebherr claims that Pengel's new LTM 1220-5.2 sets benchmarks for hook height and radius.

"We have relied on Liebherr cranes for many years," said company owner, Silvia Pengel. "The good service and reliability of Liebherr cranes are the reasons."

Headquartered in Dannenberg an der Elbe, Pengel currently owns a fleet of five mobile cranes.
