"We rely on a modern and economical crane fleet with innovative technology. That is why continuous new investments are very important for us. The new cranes will replace young used cranes of comparable size in our fleet," explains Kanitzky. "We have had a close partnership with Liebherr for 30 years. The total business this time adds up to around 100 million euros."

The new cranes will be delivered within the next 12 months and will go to all branches of the group: MAXIKraft, MaxiMum, Kranlogistik Sachsen, Kranlogistik Lausitz and Treffler.

MAXIKraft takes delivery of LR 1700-1.0 at Bauma

The LR 1700-1.0 is one of the highlights on the Liebherr stand. At a height of 94 metres, the crawler crane in MAXIKraft livery is not only the heaviest exhibit on the Liebherr stand at around 750 tonnes, but also on the entire Bauma. On the occasion of the world's most important construction trade fair, Liebherr handed over the 700-tonne crane, which is part of the new major order, to MAXIKraft.

The LR 1700-1.0 combines the advantages of the economical transport of crawler cranes in the 600-tonne class with the performance of lattice boom cranes in the 750-tonne class. In addition, it has all the innovations of the Liebherr crawler crane developments of recent years. This makes it flexible and universally deployable worldwide, for example in industry, the chemical industry and in the assembly of wind turbines.

30th anniversary

In February this year, MAXIKraft celebrated its 30th anniversary. The group of companies has many years of experience in the field of crane services and heavy transport. Telescopic, lattice and crawler cranes from 25 to 1,000 tonnes lifting capacity as well as road transport technology up to 300 tonnes payload are available for every application.
