Italian crane company Poloniato has acquired two new Liebherr mobile cranes, an LTM 1110-5.1 and an LTM 1150-5.3.
The cranes complement Poloniato’s fleet in the range between 100 and 160 tonnes lifting capacity.
It intends to use the crane mainly for erecting and dismantling tower cranes.
The LTM 1110-5.1 has a 60m telescopic boom – which is one of the longest in this class of crane.
Various extensions with folding tips or lattice pieces are possible for the telescopic boom.
The 5-axle model also features a variety of different driving conditions, making road travel easier.
The LTM 1110-5.1 comes with VarioBase Plus which gives the crane support even more power and safety.
The rear supports have a double-stage design and have a support width of 8.3 metres, 1.3 metres wider than the front supports, increasing the load-bearing forces over the rear supports further.
According to Poloniato owner Michele Poloniato, the LTM 1110-5.1 stood out for its “ability to take 13.4 tonnes of counterweight on board, the 60-metre telescopic boom and the VarioBase Plus support system.”
Likewise, “size and performance are in excellent proportion in the LTM 1150-5.3,” Poloniato said.
It offers a 66m telescopic boom that can lift loads weighing over nine tonnes when fully extended.
The single-engine strategy with mechanical drive of the superstructure eliminates weight there, which is used for the longer boom and more lifting capacity.
This allows the 5-axle crane to do many jobs without extra counterweight transport.
“What is also special is the possibility to drive on public roads with nine tonnes of counterweight,” Poloniato added.
This means that the crane can be ready for use on the construction site quickly and saves costs.
The 1150-5.3 can achieve hoisting heights of up to 92m and radii up to 72m using lattice extensions.
Poloniato will use the 1150-5.3 for erecting tower cranes and to assemble prefabricated elements made of reinforced concrete for industrial buildings.
