- Liebherr mobile construction crane MK 88 Plus at Maxpo in Finland
- Lamminsivu Oy is impressed by the performance of the device
At Maxpo 2019, the tower crane division of Liebherr exhibits an MK 88 Plus from Finnish crane rental company Lamminsivu.
Liebherr supplies a four-axle model which provides high load capacities and a large radius whilst being compact in size in the form of the MK 88 mobile construction crane. With its horizontal jib, the load capacity at the jib head with a radius of 45.0 m is 1,850 kg. The Plus option, which can be activated easily using the crane controller, provides up to 10% more load capacity. The load capacity at the jib head is thus increased to 2,000 kg. With its additional ballast, the MK 88 Plus can hoist 2,200 kg at a radius of 45.0 m.
"We are really satisfied", says Vesa Lamminsivu, Managing Director of the company of the same name. The crane rental company, which has around 45 employees, specialises in different types of lifting solutions. In total, the company has almost 30 cranes in its fleet, about half of which are Liebherr cranes. Among them are already two Liebherr mobile construction cranes, which show their strengths especially in inner cities where space is tight: The vertical tower enables work to be carried out directly on the building, the variable steering concept precise manoeuvring into every gap.
