Scottish contractor MacLeod Construction has taken delivery of a new 50 tonne three axle Liebherr LTM 1050-3.1 All Terrain crane.
The new crane features a four section 38 metre main boom plus a nine to 16 metre bi-fold swingaway extension. It is equipped with full remote controls, Stage V diesel and Liebherr’s VarioBase outrigger system.
The crane went straight to work on MacLeod’s biggest social housing project to date, a £57 million contract for 300 homes in Oban.
MacLeod Construction was founded by twin brothers Murdo and Kenny MacLeod in 1975 as a small building company and has developed into a business with interests ranging from self-build house kits to large developments for local authorities and housing associations. It has its own timber frame manufacturing facility, two quarries, runs its own services division and operates a local filling station.
