10/22/2020 Closing the gap – Schlamann takes delivery of Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 mobile crane

  • LTM 1060-3.1 upgrades the fleet in the class between 50 and 80 tonnes
  • Its long telescopic boom and compact dimensions were the main factors behind the purchase

Schlamann-Autokrane GmbH has taken delivery of a new Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 mobile crane. The northern German crane contractor based at Marklohe near Nienburg will use the 60 tonne crane to replace an LTM 1045-3.1 and upgrade its fleet in the class between 50 and 90 tonnes.

Managing Director Torsten Schlamann travelled to the Liebherr production plant in Ehingen with authorised signatory Jessica Schomburg for the handover of the new crane. He commented: “The LTM 1060-3.1 is exactly what our crane fleet was missing. It is a compact, powerful 3-axle crane with a very long telescopic boom. Its good off-road features mean that it will be a perfect supplement to our LTF 1060-4.1 telescopic truck-mounted cranes, particularly for construction projects”.

The LTM 1060-3.1 has a 48 metre telescopic boom and can reach hook heights of up to 63 metres using a folding jib. It can carry up to 5.5 tonnes of ballast on the road, which means it can tackle a whole host of crane jobs without requiring additional transport vehicles. A special method of dividing the ballast slabs has been included in the design of this mobile crane. This means that a wide range of driving configurations can be achieved quickly and easily. Its compact dimensions and time-tested ECOmode and ECOdrive make this mobile crane particularly economical to use.

Schlamann now has 21 mobile cranes, all of them supplied by Liebherr. “Liebherr is a reliable partner and the cranes hold their value extremely well. Their service is excellent. That is why we only have Liebherr cranes in our fleet. We have also ordered the new LTM 1110-5.1, which will be delivered next spring”, says Torsten Schlamann. In addition to mobile cranes, the company also rents around 190 work platforms and has a 70-strong workforce.
