In early April, Schmidbauer took delivery of the 450-tonne lifting capacity LTM 1450-8.1 at the Liebherr plant in Ehingen, Germany.

“Its short set-up times, 85 m boom and VarioBallast and VarioBase systems make the crane extremely versatile,” explained Werner Schmidbauer, company chairman.

The eight-axle crane can drive on public roads, has an axle load of 12 tonnes, and will mainly be used in the petrochemicals industry and for erecting tower cranes.

The heavy-duty LTM 1650-8.1, which has a lifting capacity of 650 tonnes, is scheduled for delivery next year.
