This latest investment supports their growth strategy and provides both additional resources to meet customer demand and new opportunities for local employment.
The three-axle LTM 1060-3.1 boasts a load capacity of 60 tonnes, a 48-metre telescopic boom and a maximum hoist height of 63 metres. In addition, it is designed for driving on roads with lots of ballast – a special method of dividing the ballast slabs has been included in the design, meaning a wide range of driving configurations can be achieved quickly and easily. Its compact dimensions and Liebherr-developed ECOmode and ECOdrive make this mobile crane extremely economical, cutting fuel consumption by up to 10%.
Managing Director of Cadman Cranes, Matt Waddingham, said: “We recently took delivery of another Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1. There is a healthy market for this size crane and with that in mind, we added a fourth 1060 to our fleet, all of them under 5 years old. Despite the uncertainty at the moment and the difficult period we have just been through, we are confident about the next few years and already we are seeing good levels of activity in many industries.
Our high level of service combined with a broad and diverse customer base and the best people in the business mean we are able to continue with our investment plans and I look forward to seeing this crane out there contributing to the fantastic projects and industry we have in the Southeast.”
