Hack said it decided on the LTM 1110-5.1 because it combines powerful lifting capacities and a long telescopic boom with high mobility and flexibility.

“We needed an additional 5-axle crane in our fleet. The LTM 1110-5.1 will expand our Koblenz branch and fits very well between our 100-tonne cranes and the LTM 1150-5.3. With a twelve-tonne axle load, it can carry 13.4 tonnes of ballast. That is a very good value. This allows us to use the LTM 1110-5.1 particularly economically, as it does not need a separate vehicle for counterweight for many tasks,” said Hack owner Udo Hack.

Liebherr has designed the LTM 1110-5.1 in such a way that ten-tonne axle loads and a total weight of less than 48 tonnes can be achieved by simply removing ballast. This variant brings significant advantages in terms of approvals and route permits, Liebherr said. A quick-change system for the ballast plates guarantees maximum flexibility during changeover.

Crane work

“We plan to use the LTM 1110-5.1 for general crane work, such as lifting prefabricated concrete parts, assembling air conditioning units, lifting swimming pools into the garden or assembling construction machinery,” added Hack.

A 10.8 to 19-metre folding jib is available, which can be adjusted hydraulically between 0° and 40 ° as an option. The 110-tonner reaches a maximum hook height of up to 91 metres.

Hack Schwerlastservice operates several branches from Düsseldorf via Eifel and Westerwald to Frankfurt, among others for construction crane rentals and assemblies as well as repairs.

Mobile folding cranes, towing and recovery services, industrial assembly with special electric cranes, working platforms and heavy transport are also part of the company portfolio.

The crane fleet consists of over 36 mobile cranes, the majority of which are machines from the Liebherr factory in Ehingen, Germany.
