- Long telescopic boom decisive purchase criterion for Grúas Alhambra
- High performance and versatility of the LTM 1300-6.3 enable a wide range of applications
- World record: LTM 1300-6.3 carries complete 90-metre telescopic boom at 12-tonne axle load on public roads
With the procurement of the Liebherr LTM 1300-6.3 mobile crane, the Spanish crane company Grúas Alhambra is becoming a pioneer: It takes over the first unit of this new type on the Iberian Peninsula. The innovative all-terrain crane with a 90-metre telescopic boom is ideal for the company’s current needs, as it was looking for a crane with greater lifting capacity and height. Grúas Alhambra will use the LTM 1300-6.3 for refinery work, wind turbine maintenance and many other applications thanks to its versatility.
Increasingly, cranes with high lifting capacity at great heights are required for construction projects. To meet this requirement, Grúas Alhambra decided to invest in the Liebherr LTM 1300-6.3 mobile crane. “We were faced with the need for equipment with longer booms. The LTM 1300-6.3 best meets our current needs,” says Abraham Molina, Managing Director of Grúas Alhambra.
With its 90-metre telescopic boom, the LTM 1300-6.3 sets standards in the 6-axle class and far surpasses other cranes on the market. It is designed to be used as a fast-erecting crane with a high capacity at great hoist heights.
Grúas Alhambra has received the first unit of the new Liebherr 300-tonne all-terrain crane both in Spain and throughout the Iberian Peninsula. “The capabilities of the new crane are undoubtedly a plus for our customers and will pave the way for new lifting projects,” says Abraham Molina. The LTM 1300-6.3 is an important addition to Grúas Alhambra’s fleet and is equipped with various lattice extensions, as well as preparation for a second winch and various innovations such as cameras and remote control system.
On the move on public roads with 90-metre telescopic boom
Liebherr holds a world record with the LTM 1300-6.3: Being able to carry a 90-metre telescopic boom on a mobile crane with a 12-tonne axle load is unsurpassed. The 300-tonne crane completes Liebherr’s range of 6-axle cranes and significantly improves the current market offering. This is a versatile, easy-to-set-up crane equipped with Liebherr’s latest technological innovations to ensure cost-effective, safe and powerful operation: ECOmode, ECOdrive, VarioBase®Plus, VarioBallast®, Auto-Ballast, single-engine concept and wind speed load charts.
“Grúas Alhambra will use the Liebherr LTM 1300-6.3 mobile crane mainly in refineries and in the maintenance of equipment in wind farms – but thanks to its versatility it will also be able to work in other areas. Its very long telescopic boom usually does away with the need to mount a lattice extension, thereby saving a lot of time,” Abraham Molina concludes.
For the crane company Grúas Alhambra, Liebherr is not only one of the most important crane manufacturers, but also a reliable partner it can rely on to carry out its customers’ lifting projects. The machine park comprises more than 40 machines, 36 of which are from Liebherr. With its expert knowledge and quickness to respond, Liebherr Ibérica’s after-sales service provides tremendous security during crane operations.
