Bernard Hunter takes delivery of 35th Liebherr
Scottish rental company Bernard Hunter has purchased its 35th Liebherr crane since it purchased its first unit 27 years ago.
With a load capacity of 110 tonnes and a 60-metre telescopic boom, the new arrival is an LTM1110-5.1 and follows last year’s delivery of the Edinburgh company’s flagship 700-tonner which represented the biggest single investment in its 75-year history.
The LTM 1110-5.1 is the smallest and latest five-axle telescopic mobile crane in the Liebherr range but can carry all its 29 tonnes of counterweight including double fly jib on UK roads. Bernard Hunter’s model features a 19-metre double fly jib complete with adjustable offset. The crane has also been specified with Liebherr’s VarioBase system and full remote-control capability of the superstructure functions.
Overseeing the introduction of the crane into the Hunter fleet was Lyle Sibbald, Liebherr’s recently appointed crane sales manager for Scotland and the north of England.
Mark Rafferty, managing director at Bernard Hunter, said: “It’s a pleasure to bring the new 110t mobile crane into our fleet. The crane offers our clients excellent capacity on the 5-axle carrier range. Without the need for additional counterweight the crane brings many environmental benefits with the removal of additional support vehicles on the road. This greatly helps Bernard Hunter reduce our carbon footprint and work towards a net zero carbon future.”
