Liebherr crane set for mountain work

Switzerland’s Clausen Kran has purchased a second Liebherr LTR 1060 crawler crane.

The crane contractor already operates an LTR 1060 telescopic crawler crane that is used for jobs at high altitudes in the Pennine Alps region. The new crane will also complete jobs on mountain sites that are steep and difficult to access, said Liebherr.

Company owner Geri Clausen commented: “The LTR 1060 has proven excellent on gravel tracks with very tight bends and steep slants as well as gradients of up to 40 percent. We have often taken it to altitudes of over 3000 m. Once it arrives at the site, the LTR 1060 can be made ready for action extremely quickly. The machine has had no problems. We are very satisfied. That is why we have now bought a second LTR 1060”.

The LTR 1060 has a maximum capacity of 60 tonnes and telescopic boom length of 40 m.
