- LTM 1750-9.1 – high lifting capacities for heavy load operations
- Easy set-up and great mobility
- Long-term partnership simplifies business administration
LOCAR has just acquired a new Liebherr all-terrain crane to increase its lifting capacity even more. The Brazilian crane company took delivery of the new 800-tonne mobile crane, LTM 1750- 9.1, in September 2022. The wind power generation industry and the warming up of industries such as mining and oil & gas have motivated the purchase of the 9-axle crane.
LOCAR’s acquisition strategy for the new LTM 1750- 9.1 is directly related to projects that require great lifting capacities and operational efficiency. This is because, even though the huge lifting capacity of 800 tonnes, the LTM 1750-9.1 allows quick and easy set-up and low operational expenses.
The Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 is versatile and it can cover a wide range of jobs in the industry, infrastructure, and the energy sector. “Despite the current political situation, we strongly believe in the country’s growth and so we are investing in the renewal and increase of the fleet”, says Amilcar Spinetti Filho Innovation and fleet management director of LOCAR. “We have chosen Liebherr because of our long-time partnership. Our fleet of high capacities all-terrain models is almost completely standardized with Liebherr cranes. The administration of a single partner, in this way, greatly facilitates our management, in terms of operation, knowledge of equipment, and after-sales service”, adds Spinetti.
The 9-axle mobile crane was developed to ensure short set-up times and great mobility. The mobile crane can carry its complete telescopic boom when driving on public roads. Its Y-telescopic boom guying enables the crane to achieve enormous lifting capacities. Comfort and safety, as well as the extensive load charts for various wind speeds, are also part of the concept of Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1.
