The 130-tonne lifting capacity crane is the fourth of this model that the Allgäu-based company has purchased over the last few years.

Company owner Eugen Haslach explained: “We decided to buy another LTM 1130-5.1 because we are very happy with the machine’s performance and overall handling. It also means that we can swap accessories and equipment between our three cranes.”

Currently, Haslach has an all-Liebherr fleet comprising eight mobile cranes with lifting capacities ranging from 40-200 tonnes. “Because we are so close to the manufacturing plant in Ehingen in Swabia, the reliability of the cranes and the fact that they hold their value well are among the main criteria why we continue to place orders with Liebher,” Eugen Haslach added.
