The Set Win Group in Hong Kong has taken delivery of its new 450t capacity Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1 wheeled mobile telescopic crane.
The crane will be put to work among the skyscrapers and restricted job sites of Hong Kong. Its 85m boom and quick set-up of the 8-axle crane are important for Set Win. Work will include tower crane assembly, lifting and placing steel structures and prefabricated concrete elements. Air conditioning system installation is another likely application. Managing director Alan Kan explained a further benefit of his new crane: “Another advantage of the crane is that not only can it be ballasted at the front, but also at the rear end of the undercarriage. That makes things significantly easier on constricted sites.”
Set Win has 25 cranes, 20 of which are Liebherrs. A new 500 tonne capacity LTM 1500-8.1 is also due to join the fleet.
