Berres offers customers from the private, commercial and public sectors everything to do with cranes and construction services. Managing Director Dorothea Berres explains: "We attach real importance to state-of-the-art technical equipment, expertise and adherence to deadlines. That's why we decided to invest in a new 180-tonne mobile crane, the LTM 1160-5.2 from Liebherr. This is a crane with innovative technology such as the VarioBallast® adjustable ballast radius. Liebherr also offers reliable and safe products."

Berres operates mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 220 tonnes. "With the LTM 1160-5.2, we are closing a gap in our crane portfolio. It fits perfectly into our range. With the new crane, we are replacing an older 110-tonne crane," declares Dorothea Berres.

The tasks of Berres mobile cranes are many and diverse. Whether industrial buildings, residential construction, wind turbines or mechanical and plant engineering – they move loads wherever construction takes place. The new LTM 1160-5.2 is also intended for the assembly of precast concrete parts, some of which have large unit weights.

LTM 1160-5.2 with 180 tonnes load capacity

The LTM 1160-5.2 has a 62 metre telescopic boom and can reach lifting heights of up to 99 metres with lattice extensions. The 5-axle vehicle is designed for a maximum load capacity of 180 tonnes. With the VarioBallast® system, the crane masters high lifting capacities with a large ballast radius as well as tight construction sites with a small radius. The variable stabiliser base VarioBase® available as standard enables safe use on confined construction sites and offers even higher load-bearing capacities – especially in the working areas directly above the stabilisers.
