- LTM 1750-9.1 becomes the largest crane at Kuşgöz İzmir Vinç
- Short set-up times with maximum mobility
- Application area of the new 800-tonners, among others, in wind power
The new LTM 1750-9.1 of the Turkish crane rental and heavy transport company Kuşgöz İzmir Vinç Kiralama A.S. will be the largest crane in the fleet. The 800-tonne is intended to take on jobs that cannot be handled by a 500-tonne mobile crane and for which the use of a crawler crane would be uneconomical. Thanks to its high lifting capacities and variable boom system, the LTM 1750-8.1 offers a wide range of applications in industry, infrastructure and the energy sector.
The new LTM 1750-9.1 for Kuşgöz İzmir Vinç Kiralama A.S. closes a gap in the crane portfolio of the Turkish crane and heavy transport company. Liebherr has significantly strengthened the LTM 1750-9.1 in 2020 with an 800-tonne upgrade. “We plan to use our new crane for tasks that cannot be done by 500-tonne mobile cranes and are not economical for crawler cranes due to the high transport costs,” explains company owner İsmail Kuşgöz.
Maximum mobility and short set-up times
The 9-axle all-terrain crane is designed for particularly short set-up times with maximum mobility. It can transport its complete telescopic boom on public roads. “The dimensions of the luffing jib make it easy to transport. What’s more, the 800-tonne crane makes it easier to assemble and disassemble,” says Kuşgöz. “Thanks to self-assembly, quick and convenient rigging can be carried out with little space required.” For luffing jibs, Liebherr offers support during erection through an automated process via the LICCON crane control system. The adjusting winch is automatically tracked by the control system when the telescopic boom luffs up.
Flexible application possibilities
For Kuşgöz İzmir Vinç, it is important to work with the latest and most modern cranes. “Following the wishes and requests of our customers, we decided to integrate an 800-tonne crane into our fleet,” Kuşgöz explains. “The Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 is a top performer in this class. The compact design and alternative applications thanks to the flexible boom system were important to us when deciding on this crane”. The Turkish company bought the 9-axle crane in the full configuration with a 91-metre luffing jib. Kuşgöz İzmir Vinç plans to use the new crane mainly in the assembly and maintenance of wind turbines and petrochemical plants as well as in industrial construction. Thanks to its high lifting capacities and variable boom system, the LTM 1750-9.1 covers a wide range of applications in industry, infrastructure or the energy sector.
Position as the market leader and Liebherr customer service on-site convincing
“Liebherr is the leading company in the mobile crane sector. We benefit from excellent support by both sales and customer service here in Turkey. This has made us favour Liebherr cranes for many years. With this crane, too, we always felt supported by Liebherr from the time of the order to the final handover,” Kuşgöz is pleased to say.
Kuşgöz İzmir Vinç Kiralama A.S. has been renting out cranes at home and abroad for around 20 years. In addition, the Turkish family-owned company is also active in the field of heavy transport for wind farms and in the assembly and maintenance of wind turbines.
