News | 06/05/2023 A strong new arrival: Liebherr delivers MK 140 to Herrmann & Wittrock

Liebherr has handed over a new MK 140 to Herrmann & Wittrock GmbH & Co. KG, a company based in Hof, Germany. The crane rental business now has Liebherr’s largest mobile construction crane as part of its fleet. The machine’s innovative taxi crane concept makes it exceptionally mobile and means it can be operated without any great logistical effort. Only one person is needed for travel, assembly and operation. Multiple jobs on the same day are no problem at all for mobile construction cranes from Liebherr.

Herrmann & Wittrock is expanding its fleet of MKs upwards with the addition of a new MK 140. One of the crane’s special features is its “VarioJib” jib concept. This allows the MK 140 to be operated flexibly in trolley or luffing mode, according to requirements. The crane offers a jib length of 58.5 metres in trolley mode, and a radius of up to 65 metres in luffing mode.

Herrmann & Wittrock now has 15 MK cranes at its disposal, thereby covering a wide performance spectrum for the diverse requirements of its customers. Herrmann & Wittrock is part of the Wittrock Group, which has 26 locations across Germany and close to 200 mobile and crawler cranes in its portfolio.
