The company that – until its most recent purchase – operated a crane hire fleet featuring two-to-five axle machines made the move to acquire the LTM 1300-6.3 to expand its operations in the field of prefabricated concrete construction, machine loading, and construction crane assembly. According to Managing Director, Roland Haslach, the purchase of the now-largest crane in the company’s fleet was something that had been pondered for a while, reserving praise for the Liebherr and Haslach teams.

“The expansion of our crane fleet was a long and well-considered step, which was only possible with our long-standing and well-trained team,” he said. “The team made it easier for us to choose the LTM 1300-6.3, which meets all our requirements.”

Among its features, the 300-tonne capacity LTM 1300-6.3 all-terrain crane possesses a 90m main telescopic boom that can be carried in full with a 12-tonne axle load, a maximum hoist height of 120m, and a maximum operating radius of 94m. For Kranverleih Haslach, the key elements that drove its purchase of its flagship crane were the manoeuvrable chassis, variable ballast radius, and flexible support technology. Working in the fields that it does, Haslach cited the manner in which the LTM 1300-6.3 ticked all the boxes for higher loads with increasing radii as well as compact, manoeuvrable machinery.

“Thanks to its long, 8-section main boom, we can already achieve great lifting heights and enormous load capacities with an extension of 46 per cent per telescopic section,” said the Managing Director. “The manoeuvrable chassis is also practical for operations in our mountainous region.”

According to the manufacturer, another advantage of the crane is the quick assembly and disassembly, as no guying of the crane is necessary. This, too, added to the flexibility of the crane, according to Haslach, that substantiated the purchase of the LTM 1300-6.3.

“Because it has few accessories, it can be moved quickly from site to site,” said Haslach. “That’s what we appreciate about our new crane.”

The new LTM 1300-6.3 joins eight other Liebherr cranes in the crane rental company’s portfolio – from two-axle to six-axle machines with lifting capacities from 40 to 300 tonnes, Haslach thus offers a wide range of services via its mobile crane fleet.
