Ehingen / Donau (Germany) March 2016 – RMT Albert Regel Logistik GmbH has been operating a new Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 mobile crane since autumn 2015. As a result of its very good experience with this Liebherr 300-tonne crane, Albert Regel GmbH also decided to buy this crane model. The main criteria for Regel were the long telescopic boom and VarioBase® variable supporting base.
The two Managing Partners Carsten Hildebrandt and Alexander Teifke came to the Liebherr production plant in Ehingen to take delivery of the new crane. They explain: “The LTM 1300-6.2 supplements our crane fleet between the LTM 1220-5.2 and our two LTM 1500-8.1 cranes. The new crane has a very long and powerful 78-metre telescopic boom. What is more we are delighted with the Liebherr VarioBase®. Even on sites where the supports cannot be extended fully due to a lack of space, we want to be able to work safely and with excellent load capacity values.”
Liebherr first unveiled the LTM 1300-6.2 with the new Single-Engine drive Concept at the Bauma 2013 event. Other crane models followed and now there are more than 150 mobile cranes featuring the Liebherr Single-Engine Concept proving their worth on sites all over the world. Carsten Hildebrandt confirms: “The drive principle with a mechanical shaft works very well. The LTM 1300-6.2 needs an astonishingly small amount of fuel.”
The new LTM 1300-6.2 was driven straight to a site after being collected. Old ventilation units had to be removed from the Wintershall administration building in Kassel, a subsidiary of BASF. The challenge was that the crane had to work with a radius of up to 56 metres above the 50-metre high building. As a result of the projecting edge of the building, a 21 metre lattice jib at an angle of 40 degrees was fitted to the 78 metre telescopic boom.
