Knaack-Krane has extended its fleet with the acquisition of a Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1.

The mobile crane has already been used in the assembly of turbines at Stößen-Teuchern wind farm near Leipzig.

With its maximum lift capacity of 750 tonnes at a 3m radius, the Liebherr unit can be used to perform a broad array of tasks. And the LTM 1750-9.1 is able to travel on public roads with its complete telescopic boom at an axle load of 12 tonnes.

Knaack-Krane plans to use the new addition for applications in a variety of sectors. Both in terms of lift height and radii, the mobile crane’s lift capacities make it ideally suited to sectors such as construction and wind power, where ever-larger prefabricated components must be moved and assembled.

The German company, which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2013, is confident the new Liebherr crane will enable it to deliver higher performance to its customers. Knaak-Krane now operates across Europe, and employs 100 people in total.
