  • LTM 1110-5.1 replaces a 100 tonne class mobile crane
  • Innovative high performance crane concept impresses

Crane and heavy haulage contractor LENZ-KRAN from Bremerhaven has modernised its fleet with a new Liebherr LTM 1110-5.1 mobile crane. The 110 tonne crane is one of the latest crane models in Liebherr’s LTM product series. Its main features are its high lifting capacities and a long telescopic boom combined with good mobility and flexibility.

The LTM 1110-5.1 will replace a 100 tonne class mobile crane at LENZ-KRAN. Company owner Wolfgang Lenz explains: “The LTM 1110-5.1 is very innovative with its single-engine concept. It offers our customers more lifting capacity and, due to having VarioBase®, also delivers greater safety and flexibility for jobs on constricted sites”.

The new crane will fit into the mid-range section of the fleet at LENZ-KRAN, which extends up to the LTM 1350-6.1. Its main areas of use will be the construction industry and repair work of container bridges at the port. Lenz has ordered a hydraulically adjustable double folding jib specially for this type of work. With its 60 metre boom, lattice extensions and lattice jib, the LTM 1110-5.1 can reach hook heights of up to 91 metres.

Lenz also appreciates the great mobility and flexibility of his new 5-axle crane as it can carry 13.1 tonnes of ballast on the road with an axle load of 12 tonnes. However, it can also be driven at a gross weight of less than 48 tonnes with a maximum axle load of 10 tonnes. Even with its maximum ballast of 28.7 tonnes, its axle load remains below 15.5 tonnes. A quick-change system for the ballast slabs ensures maximum flexibility for changing the crane’s set-up.

LENZ-KRAN was founded in Bremerhaven in 1986 and in addition to mobile crane hire, also provides high capacity and heavy haulage services. The company currently has a workforce of around 35 and operates nine mobile cranes, seven of which were supplied by Liebherr. Another sector in which family-run Lenz is involved is construction, where it specialises in wooden construction and assembly work.
