Liebherr unveiled a new 130-tonne mobile crane with a 60-metre telescopic boom at the Bauma 2007 – the LTM 1130-5.1. The 1000th crane of this type left the manufacturing plant in June this year. Construction contractor Alfred Trepka GmbH based in Ober-Grafendorf in Lower Austria took delivery of the new crane at a small celebration. The LTM 1130-5.1 will be a new addition and the largest crane in the company's fleet. The time-tested 5-axle crane from Liebherr features the most innovative crane equipment as a result of the company continuously installing its latest technologies into it.
The LTM 1130-5.1 has been successful on all five continents. Liebherr has delivered this crane model to customers in almost 70 different countries. 180 cranes are in use in Germany, 90 in the USA, followed by Australia, Canada and France with 50 units each. But customers in smaller crane markets also operate the Liebherr 130-tonne machine, including those in Angola, Ivory Coast, Colombia, Mauritania and Myanmar.
The LTM 1130-5.1 features state-of-the-art mobile crane technology as Liebherr has continued to install technical innovations such as VarioBase®, ECOmode, new crane cabin, new single-piece steel rims and the latest generation of disk brakes in this model as soon as they were available.
