Rate this post

Grúas Roxu based in Spain has placed an order for ten mobile cranes from Liebherr Ibérica in May 2021. The package of new cranes includes four LTM 1070-4.2, three LTM 1110-5.1 and two LTM 1150- 5.3. In addition, the Asturian company opted for a refurbished LTM 1500-8.1 to complement its fleet in the 500-tonne range. In the meantime, all deliveries have been made and the project is complete. “ The reason for our investment is nothing other than to renew our machinery fleet with new and innovative models from the Liebherr brand, which we have relied on for years,” says José Manuel García, president of Grúas Roxu

Grúas Roxu took delivery of the world’s first unit of the Liebherr LTM 1110-5.1 mobile crane two years ago. There are now already four units of this crane type in the fleet. “With a 60-meter telescopic boom and a compact chassis, it is a very versatile crane with an enormously high lifting capacity. These characteristics allow us to gain efficiency and competitiveness,” declares the president of Grúas Roxu. We believe “that it is the most technically complete crane in its class in all its parameters, and that is why it makes a clear difference for us. Grúas Roxu is looking for the best in every case, and that was the main reason why we chose this model,” continues José Manuel García. 

The company also pioneered the purchase of the first Liebherr LTM 1150-5.3 mobile crane in Spain. “The LTM 1150-5.3 is equipped with hill start assist for manoeuvring on slopes and mountains. This innovative technology, combined with the TraXon transmission, is a great help for us due to the terrain conditions and orography of our region,” emphasizes José Manuel García. 

The LTM 1070-4.2 is used by Grúas Roxu for a wide range of support activities, particularly in the company’s focus areas, such as industry, maritime projects, public works and wind energy. In addition, there is auxiliary work for large cranes, both inside and outside Asturias, where the company is based.
