March 23 - Fangmann Industrie has taken delivery of an LTM 1130-5.1 mobile crane from Liebherr.

The 130-tonne capacity crane on its five-axle chassis will extend and strengthen Fangmann's fleet, which previously only included mobile cranes with a load capacity of up to 100 tonnes.

Industrial projects service provider Fangmann said that the boom length and capacity of the Liebherr crane were the main reasons behind the purchase.

"The LTM 1130-5.1 with its 60 m telescopic boom is a powerful 130-tonne machine which offers great flexibility," said Nico Macht, operations manager at Fangmann. "And its variable support base VarioBase provides additional safety and flexibility because space is often very constricted in plants and on sites and there are only very small spaces available for cranes."
