Windhoist crane first


SPECIALIST crane hirer Windhoist has become the first company in the British Isles to take delivery of Liebherr's new 100-tonne capacity LTR 1100 telescopic crawler crane.

The firm specialises in the installation of wind turbines.

The combination of telescopic boom and crawler undercarriage makes the LTR 1100 suitable for rapid deployment over rough terrain.

The crane can lift 100 tonnes at 2.5 m radius on the 52 m main boom. It has a travel speed of 2.8 km/h on its 900 mm wide hydraulic tracks.
