José Manuel Garcia, President of the Roxu Group, explained: “I was impressed by the concept of the new crane as soon as I saw it, because its combination of mobility, lifting capacity and boom length is perfect. These features are extremely important decision-making criteria for our company.”

The new LTM 1110-5.1 achieves axle loads of 12 tonnes with 13.4 tonnes of ballast, but can also be driven with a maximum axle load of 10 tonnes. This version delivers major benefits for obtaining licences and route permits. Even with its maximum ballast of 29 tonnes, its axle load remains below 16 tonnes. A quick-change system for the ballast slabs ensures maximum flexibility for changing the crane’s set-up.

Although the new LTM 1110-5.1 is such a lightweight construction that its gross weight is just 48 tonnes, its 60 metre telescopic boom enables it to exceed the performance of similar mobile cranes on the market. The boom is one of the longest in its crane class. VarioBase®Plus, a combination of trapezoidal and variable support base, generates additional capacity. With the widened rear outrigger base, it delivers particularly high lifting capacities.

“We are convinced that the LTM 1110-5.1 will quickly become established as a technical benchmark in its segment. At Grúas Roxu, we always try to purchase the best machine on the market for every different type of job. We will therefore gradually be replacing the other 5-axle mobile cranes in our fleet with the new LTM 1110-5.1”, adds Garcia.
