July 29 - Liebherr has delivered its 1,000th LTM 1130-5.1 mobile crane to Austrian construction contractor Alfred Trepka.

The 130-tonne capacity five-axle model will become Trepka's largest crane. The company ordered the crane with the VarioBase variable support base, which Liebherr says ensures greater flexibility and safety, particularly in constricted site conditions.

The LTM 1130-5.1 was launched in 2007 and has since been delivered to almost 70 countries. It features a 60 m telescopic boom, which can be extended with a double folding jib and two 7 m long lattice sections.
