News | 10/30/2022 Liebherr mobile construction crane handed over for Galabau

The first Liebherr MK 140-5.1 mobile construction crane goes to Herold Gala-Bau in Berlin. The five-axle mobile construction crane is the successor to the successful MK 140 and one of the Bauma innovations from Liebherr-Werk Biberach GmbH.

With the hybrid power concept, the machine can be operated purely electrically in crane mode. As a result, it operates particularly quietly and locally without CO2 emissions, making it a particularly good solution for construction sites in urban areas, including the heart of Berlin. The power for the MK 140-5.1 comes either from the mains or from the efficient diesel generator, which ensures self-sufficient operation.

The MK 140-5.1 from Herold is used for gardening and landscaping jobs of all sizes around the German capital. For example, the crane is to help with the greening of facades and roofs. "We are convinced by the concept of our new mobile construction crane. It is the optimal machine for Berlin and the surrounding area," says Thomas Klaus-Bartsch, Managing Director of Herold. Klaus-Bartsch and his business partner Dominik Rose are not only referring to the hybrid drive, but also to the compact size, the small footprint and the high flexibility of their new Liebherr mobile construction crane, which can easily be used in several locations on a single day.
