10/01/2018 Schick takes delivery of the most powerful 5-axle crane on the market – lifting capacity extension with the Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 mobile crane

  • Quality, technology and service as the main factors in favour of the Liebherr crane
  • Initial jobs involving prefabricated construction
  • VarioBase® and a second winch make precision positioning on constricted sites easier

Anton Schick GmbH took delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 mobile crane in July. “This means we now have the most powerful five-axle crane on the market in our fleet”, says Managing Director Anton Schick. The company based in Bad Kissingen in the heart of Germany will use the 250-tonne crane for major prefabricated concrete construction projects.

The LTM 1250-5.1 has already successfully completed its first jobs – including relocating supports and wall components for the construction of a new warehouse for an adhesives manufacturer in Bad Kissingen. The smart VarioBase® supporting system makes the crane significantly easy to use on constricted sites. Schick also ordered the LTM 1250-5.1 with a second winch. This enables concrete facades to be turned into the correct position in the air.

“Liebherr has been supplying time-tested quality for over 40 years and is also the technology leader in the mobile crane market”, says Schick, and continues: “In addition to technological aspects, the fact that Liebherr mobile cranes retain their value is another important factor for us.” The LTM 1250-5.1 will replace an LTM 1220-5.2 and is the company’s new flagship. The fleet also includes an LTM 1160-5.2 and an LTM 1060-3.1 as well as over forty Liebherr tower cranes. Schick has a total workforce of around 350.

Anton Schick continues: “The technical advice from Liebherr is excellent and the sales team is totally competent. Furthermore, Liebherr provides excellent services.” These include well trained service technicians, emergency services available at all times and the global availability of 95 percent of all spare parts within 24 hours.
