Indian crane rental company Kandla Cargo Handlers has taken delivery of a used 750 tonne Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 All Terrain crane, that has been refurbished at Liebherr’s plant in Ehingen, Germany.
The nine axle crane is the largest machine in the company’s fleet, and features a 52 metre main boom and up to 91 metres of lattice jib. It will be used mainly for large industrial and wind power installation work.
Partner Bajranglal Agarwal said: “The LTM 1750-9.1 is the best crane in its capacity class from our point of view. It is a very strong crane with high lifting capacity as well as highest level of versatility in boom configurations, which will help us in the different industrial and wind power applications. We bought the used crane due to the fast delivery time and the overhauling of the crane was done in Liebherr’s main manufacturing plant in Ehingen, Germany.”
“Liebherr is the most technologically advanced crane brand in the world and we have a lot of Liebherr telescopic cranes in the upper end of our crane capacity fleet, starting from the LTM 1160 all the way up to the new LTM 1750-9.1. And with a large crane like this, you need a strong and reliable partner. The quality, reliability and service from Liebherr is important for us, so this crane was for us the logical choice.”
Established in 1989, Kandla Cargo Handlers is based in Mumbai, India. The company employs around 150 with a fleet size of approximately 40 cranes ranging from 160 to 750 tonnes.
