The mobile crane LTM 1250-5.1 was designed for maximum lifting capacity with available weight and is currently, the strongest five-axle crane in the world. With this in mind, the Calsimec Group bought its first LTM 1250-5.1. “This new crane will guarantee our Group greater competitiveness in the rental services market. We can also better implement industrial assembly work”, André Tadeu, Operational Manager of Calsimec, explains and emphasises: “Another important factor for Calsimec was the high quality standard of the Liebherr machines. We already have a mobile crane LTM 1130-5.1, which provides us with reliable services.”

Calsimec's LTM 1250-5.1 has 250 tonnes maximum lifting capacity. The telescopic boom reaches a length of 60 meters and can be extended with 14 meter lattice sections and a double swing away jib of 36 meter. It also has the proven Liebherr technologies, which guarantee flexible lifting with the boom systems and a high versatility of the applications. These include, for example, the VarioBallast® system, which enables fast variation between a large radius and high load capacities as well as a small radius for restricted job sites. The ECOmode and ECOdrive systems ensure reduced fuel consumption.

Calsimec's Operational Manager André Tadeu and the Industrial Director Carlos Antonio dos Reis enthusiastically received the LTM 1250-5.1 at the End of October. Carlos Antonio dos Reis says: “It was very important for us to receive the new crane as soon as possible, to get to know the technical refinements and to be able to carry out the training of our employees. This enables us to achieve a better performance with our customers."
