  • Easy road transport with the LTM 1150-5.3: 60 tonnes driving weight with nine tonnes of ballast and plenty of reserve for crane accessories
  • Also in demand from end customers – LTC 1050-3.1’s high telescoping loads and height-adjustable crane cab
  • Very good experience in terms of quality, service and customer support the main reasons for the new purchase

Bavarian specialist for crane work and heavy haulage, Kran Völkl GmbH & Co. KG, has added two new cranes to its fleet – an LTM 1150-5.3 and an LTC 1050-3.1. When purchasing the mobile crane, driving on public roads with a high counterweight was crucial, whereas the high telescopic loads were a decisive factor for chosing the compact crane.

Straubing-based company Kran Völkl has over a dozen mobile cranes in its fleet. A 110-tonne crane has now been replaced by the LTM 1150-5.3. “Based on our positive experience with our LTM 1130-5.1, we opted for almost the same configuration for the LTM 1150-5.3,” says owner Rudolf Völkl. With its hydraulic double folding jib, second hoist gear with assembly jib, remote control, an LED lighting package and a boom camera, the mobile crane has everything the customer wanted. “It was important to us that with its maximum weight of 60 tonnes, the crane still had a reserve of around 400 kilograms for crane accessories, even when travelling with nine tonnes of ballast, a second hoist winch and a three-roller hook block. To save weight, we therefore ordered the crane with aluminium wheels,” says Völkl. 

In selecting the LTC 1050-3.1, the focus was on the high telescoping loads and the height-adjustable crane cab. “This special cab is very popular with end customers and is often expressly requested,” explains Völkl. The features of the LTC 1050-3.1 also cover every base – folding and assembly jibs, the complete LED lighting package and the all-round camera are just a few of the features that Kran Völkl has chosen. “The remote control with Remote Drive and seat cooling are also very popular with our drivers to ensure easy manoeuvring,” says Völkl. 

Quality, service and resale value

“When deciding to purchase cranes from Liebherr in Ehingen, in addition to the high quality, service and customer support, the high resale value of the cranes and the handling of warranty and goodwill claims were also important to us,” adds Völkl. The Straubing-based family-owned business operates cranes from 40 to 500 tonnes for its customers. Among them, the company has 130-, 150- and 200-tonne models, each with double hoist gears and double-hook operation.
