Crane and heavy transport company Guindastes Tatuapé has recently taken a delivery of the first Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1 mobile crane in Brazil. It has a seven section 66-metre telescopic main boom that is according to Liebherr the longest ever realised in this crane class. The LTM 1120-4.1 has been specified with a 10.8- to 19-metre double fly jib, which offsets by up to 40 degrees. With a seven-metre insert it offers a maximum tip height of more than 94 metres and a maximum radius of 64 metres.
Denys Garzon Rodrigues, Commercial Director at Guindastes Tatuapé, commented: “The LTM 1120-4.1 is the new benchmark in the 4-axle class. It has the longest boom and delivers extremely high lifting capacities which increase its flexibility for jobs and improve transport costs as the crane can be used to complete jobs which would otherwise require a 5-axle crane, for which a great deal more logistical work is required.”
“As all four axles can be steered, it is ideal for use on very restricted sites. The VarioBase variable supporting base and VarioBallast adjustable ballast radius are features that make jobs in extreme conditions safer and more flexible,” he added.
To extend its range of cranes even further, Tatuapé actually placed an order for two LTM 1120-4.1 machines. The second one is due to arrive in Brazil in mid-2022.
