Germany-based crane rental company MaxiKraft Group is investing EUR100 million (USD99 million) in Liebherr mobile and crawler cranes.
At the bauma trade fair in Munich, MaxiKraft took delivery of a LR 1700-1.0 crawler crane as part of the order. It has a maximum load capacity of 700 tonnes and a main boom length of up to 165 m.
The other cranes in the order will be delivered within the next 12 months and will go to all branches of the group: MaxiKraft, MaxiMum, Kranlogistik Sachsen, Kranlogistik Lausitz and Treffler.
MaxiKraft owner, Maik Kanitzky, said: “We rely on a modern and economical crane fleet with innovative technology. That is why continuous new investments are very important for us. The new cranes will replace young used cranes of comparable size in our fleet.”
