Biggleswade (Great Britain), March 2019
Chelmsford-based Eastern Crane Hire Ltd purchased its first crane from Liebherr in May 2017 when it was a recently-formed company and has just taken delivery of its second brand new Liebherr crane in two years.
Eastern Crane Hire has been so pleased with its first Liebherr crane – an LTM 1040-2.1 mobile crane – that it placed an order for another of these compact two-axle machines at last year’s Liebherr customer day in Ehingen.
Once again the company has opted to specify its crane with Liebherr’s unique VarioBaseÒ system, which is particularly effective for lifting operations in locations where space is restricted and is a highly useful addition to this model’s excellent all-terrain capability and manoeuvrability.
Eastern Crane Hire’s Director Christopher Ashworth said: ‘We are delighted to take delivery of our second LTM 1040. The support and service from Liebherr since our first purchase in May 2017 continues to impress. The VarioBaseÒ system has proved to be a huge benefit to us, assisting greatly when we are faced with a restricted site. Feedback from both customers and operators has been positive and we look forward to continuing to expand our fleet with Liebherr cranes.’
