German crane company Treffler has renewed its fleet of Liebherr mobile construction cranes.
Acquiring four new cranes from the German manufacturers, Treffler is modernising its fleet with a range of new MK series cranes to account for the growing demand for mobile construction cranes in its area: the MK 140, the MK 140-5.1, and two MK 88-4.1.
Offering crane services since 1978, Liebherr mobile construction cranes have been part of Treffler’s product portfolio since 2008.
“I really like renting out the equipment because it is so flexible and quick to use,” says Matthias Bulisch, Treffler’s branch manager, adding, “MK cranes already have a long history at Treffler; we were among the first to have these machines in use.”
Liebherr’s five-axle MK 140 can lift a maximum of eight tonnes and is capable of managing 1,900 kilograms at the tip with an outreach of up to 65 metres, making it the strongest Liebherr mobile construction crane.
The only MK series crane featuring the ‘VarioJib’ function, the crane can operate either in trolley mode for high handling performance or in luffing mode for especially large hook heights of up to 94 metres.
Furthermore, the series of mobile construction cranes work towards a sustainable future in construction.
Operating electrically with a hybrid power supply if on-site electricity is available, the crane can be operated without noise or emissions, a decisive operational factor especially on inner-city construction sites. Driven to a site by a drive motor that can be switched off during the crane’s operation, a diesel generator will take over if there is no electricity available on site.
In addition to the regional market around Munich and Ingolstadt, Treffler also serves construction sites throughout Germany with its fleet of mobile construction cranes.
