May 31 - Cuxhaven, Germany based Empting Kran- und Handelsgesellschaft has expanded its fleet with the addition of a five-axle Liebherr LTM 1130-5.1 mobile crane, with a lifting capacity of 130 tonnes.

Empting said a good orderbook, particularly in the construction and port sectors, led to the decision to purchase the new crane. To ensure it is suitable for a wide range of lifting tasks, Empting ordered the double folding jib that significantly extends the working range of the 60 m telescopic boom in terms of hoist height and radius. The VarioBase variable support base delivers additional safety and greater capacity, said the company.
