Harrogate-based independently run family crane hire company Emsley Crane Hire has recently taken delivery of a new full specification LTM 1090-4.2 mobile crane which takes the company’s fleet size to 64.
This 90 tonne, four-axle LTM 1090-4.2 can travel with an axle load of 10, 12 and 16 tonnes and in the UK with its 22.5 tonne counterweight and fly jib. This capability, coupled with its 60 m telescopic main boom, means that it is a versatile model in the UK’s four-axle crane market. ECOdrive and ECOmode reduce fuel consumption and noise emissions. VarioBase® and VarioBallast® come as standard. The latter enables the LTM 1090-4.2 to achieve maximum lifting capacities with a larger ballast radius, whilst the smaller radius option provides benefits in constricted working conditions. The LTM 1090-4.2 also boasts a narrow chassis and generous storage.
Of the company’s latest arrival from Liebherr, Tom Emsley, Technical Director said: Following a visit to the Liebherr factory the decision to purchase a number of cranes, including the LTM 1090-4.2, was an easy one. The machine is compact and versatile and with the added bonus of the VarioBallast® and VarioBase® will be a great asset to our fleet. We are extremely happy with our latest Liebherr cranes and will be placing an order for more once Brexit has been finalised.’
