King Lifting takes delivery of new LTM1750-9.1

King Lifting has taken delivery of a new Liebherr LTM1750-9.1. The crane has been bought with 204 tonne of counterweight and a 91m luffing jib. The crane will be available for hire throughout Europe.

The crane went straight to work rigged with the 204 tonne counterweight and 51m main boom including Y-guying to install a 108 tonne tank section. The crane was then mobilised to carry out maintenance work on a wind turbine where King lifting also supplied a Liebherr LTM1500-8.1 and a Grove GMK5130-2.
