- LTM 1120-4.1 expands Mikschl Autokrane fleet
- Compact dimensions and high performance the main factors behind the purchase decision
Mikschl Autokrane GmbH based in Aichach has taken delivery of a new Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1 mobile crane. The Bavarian contractor is expanding its crane fleet with the 120-tonne machine. The extremely compact design of the 4-axle crane and its high lifting capacities were major factors behind the decision to buy the new crane.
Managing Director Roland Mikschl explains: “The future is small, compact but powerful mobile cranes because sites are becoming more and more restricted and have less space for cranes. That is why we were looking for a powerful 4-axle crane, which we found at Liebherr.”
The most powerful 4-axle all-terrain mobile crane on the market
The LTM 1120-4.1 is the most powerful 4-axle all-terrain crane ever built. The Liebherr 120 tonne machine breaks into a performance class that has previously been the sole preserve of 5-axle cranes. As far as boom length is concerned, it is on a par with 200-tonne class cranes as its 66-metre telescopic boom is the longest ever to be installed on a 4-axle mobile crane.
The LTM 1120-4.1 can tackle jobs that normally would require a 5-axle crane, eliminating all the logistics work needed for the larger model. Because a 4-axle crane delivers benefits in terms of licensing and road permits, it can tackle jobs faster and with greater flexibility. The design of a 4-axle crane also enables it to tackle jobs where there is insufficient space for larger cranes. On constricted sites, in particular, Liebherr’s VarioBallast® and VarioBase® innovations deliver enhanced performance, flexibility and safety.
The VarioBallast® on the LTM 1120-4.1 enables the crane to operate with a ballast radius of 3.83 or 4.77 metres. The ballast radius can be reduced by 940 mm quickly and easily using standard, mechanically adjustable ballasting cylinders when site conditions get tight. The large ballast radius delivers higher performance and often also cost benefits by reducing ballast transport, as many crane jobs can be completed with fewer counterweights.
