12/21/2016 Grúas Moviles Mix adds Liebherr mobile cranes to its fleet

  • The Liebherr LTC 1050-3.1 stands out due to its compact dimensions and flexibility
  • Grúas Moviles Mix attaches great value to the lift cabin and VarioBase® support base
  • Single-cabin crane is ideal for work on constricted sites such as in steelworks, power plants and refineries.

Grúas Moviles Mix recently added two more Liebherr mobile cranes, an LTC 1050-3.1 and an LTM 1130-5.1 to its fleet. Moviles Mix is very keen on the compact dimensions and the VarioBase® variable support system on the LTC 1050-3.1. These enable the Liebherr mobile crane to deliver increased capacity and also make it extremely safe and flexible to use.

Elida Mirta Emiliozzi, Managing Director of Grúas Moviles Mix, and her son Sebastián Alejo Fernández visited the Liebherr plant in Ehingen in October to take delivery of their innovative new crane. "This crane meets our need to update our crane fleet in full", says Sebastián Alejo Fernández, proudly describing the new purchase. With its particularly compact dimensions, the 3-axle crane is ideal for use on constricted sites such as those found in steelworks, power plants and refineries. At the same time the 50-tonne machine is also designed for use as a taxi crane which means that it can be driven on public roads with a 12 tonne axle load carrying all its equipment so that it is immediately ready for use when it reaches the site.

Sebastián Alejo Fernández explains that the safety aspect is very important to the company: "We ordered our LTC 1050-3.1 with the lift cabin which gives the crane driver an excellent view of the site situation." The unique VarioBase® system enables each individual crane support to be extended to any length whilst the crane work is secured by the load moment limiter included in the crane controller. VarioBase® also delivers higher load capacities and a larger working area.

During the visit to Ehingen, Grúas Moviles Mix also took delivery of a used LTM 1130-5.1 mobile crane. Elida Mirta Emiliozzi explains: "We already have an LTM 1070/1 and an LTM 1100/1 from Liebherr in our fleet. The experience we have with both machines has been more than satisfactory. Our employees are extremely satisfied with the user-friendly and comfortable handling of Liebherr mobile cranes. That is why we decided to buy two more mobile cranes from Liebherr." The used LTM 1130-5.1, which has been tested in full at the manufacturing plant in Ehingen by Liebherr crane specialists, will be a perfect fit in the crane contractor's product portfolio.

Argentinian crane contractor Grúas Moviles Mix based in Buenos Aires currently has 12 employees.
