Already in possession of three 750-tonne lattice-boomed Liebherrs, the Swedish company sought to further expand its capacities in wind farm construction and maintenance with the acquisition of its fourth machine, equipped with an SX3 boom system.

With this reinforced boom, the crane offers a 20 per cent increase in lifting capacity and significantly higher wind tolerances compared to the conventional SX version – this is a major benefit, especially for crane work in the wind power sector.

“We opted for this mobile lattice boom crane to offer our customers maximum flexibility,” says Managing Director, Björn Jinert. “We now have two lattice boom cranes on crawlers and two on wheels, among which we can swap and recombine the booms.”


As a lattice boom mobile crane, the LG 1750 combines the lifting capacity of a 750-tonne crawler crane with the mobility of a fast-moving mobile crane. It has the crane slewing platform and boom system of the LR 1750 crawler crane as well as an eight-axle chassis with speed-dependent rear axle steering, making the crane ideal for fast assembly work.

Among its mobile crane fleet, Jinert also possessed an LG 1550 that recently fell afoul of slippery road conditions. Having only added the crane to its fleet in 2016, the company took the machine to the repair centre in Ehingen-Berg, where it was repaired and refurbished.  The decision to repair the crane at the Liebherr location in southern Germany was based on the available capacity, the complexity of the damage and the size of the crane.

“Since we added this crane to our fleet in 2016, our experience with it has been excellent,” said the Managing Director. “We are very satisfied with the repairs to our LG 1550 – the crane is like new again.”

Sven Jinert AB was founded in 1988 in Hässleholm, where its head office is still located today. The company added its first Liebherr crane, an LTM 1035-3, to its portfolio in 1990. With around 350 employees and offices in around 20 different locations in Sweden, the lifting and transport service provider offers modern equipment for lifting operations, special transport and heavy-duty transport.
