Grúas Aguilar is active in a wide range of projects throughout the Iberian Peninsula, France and Morocco. When modernising its crane fleet, the crane specialist consistently relies on Liebherr's product range. This is reflected in the latest investment: eleven mobile cranes of various sizes and load capacities were procured.
The current investment package, which was delivered successively from June 2022, also includes the Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 all-terrain crane, which has now become one of the flagships of Grúas Aguilar's machinery fleet. "We chose this 8-axle mobile crane with a lifting capacity of 700 tonnes to replace a 500-tonne unit. As a result, this new model perfectly complements our fleet in the heavy-duty sector," says company owner Luis Aguilar. "With its high performance and telescopic boom up to 80 metres long, the LTM 1650-8.1 is a very versatile model designed for a wide range of applications. This flexibility also means high profitability for us." Grúas Aguilar's applications for the LTM 1650-8.1 include civil engineering, industrial, wind power and port development.
Continuous modernisation of the machinery fleet
With the Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane, Grúas Aguilar has completed an order for a total of 11 Liebherr mobile cranes, including the following models: LTM 1060-3.1, LTM 1070-4.2, LTM 1090-4.2, LTM 1150-5.3 and LTM 1230-5.1. All these all-terrain cranes, including the LTM 1650-8.1, are destined for the fleets that Grúas Aguilar operates in Madrid and Palma de Mallorca.
Grúas Aguilar has always had a policy of constantly renewing its fleet of machines in order to be able to offer its customers the best possible service at all times thanks to a modern and high-quality fleet. Luis Aguilar says: "Liebherr's product range is synonymous with success and guarantee. Therefore, when we have to replace a model, we choose the same brand that we have trusted for years and that will continue to represent a secure value in the future."
Grúas Aguilar has relied on Liebherr quality and service since 1986. Since then, Liebherr has always been an important and reliable technology partner. One of the company's strengths is undoubtedly Liebherr Ibérica's excellent after-sales service, which gives us great security in the development of our lifting projects," Luis Aguilar concludes.
