July 27 - Autokrane Schares has added a new 500-tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 mobile crane to its fleet.
The new Liebherr crane will be the company's largest machine. "The crane fits neatly into our existing fleet with a 350-tonne capacity model previously being our largest crane. The bigger crane will expand and supplement our portfolio perfectly," said Schares managing director Katrin Schleiting.
The equipment for the new 500-tonne capacity crane can be transported using Schares' existing fleet of tractor vehicles and trailers, which the company says is a major advantage.
Planned applications for the new LTM 1500-8.1 include handling work, bridge installations and prefabricated concrete assembly work.
