German rental company Ulferts & Wittrock has placed an order for a further 40 Liebherr cranes following a 40 unit order last year.
The 80 cranes include LTM All Terrains, LTC City type cranes and LTF truck cranes, and range from 30 tonne two axle models to the five axle 250 tonne LTM 1250-5.1 All Terrain cranes. The company has said that low travel costs was an important factor with its decision and that it chose a larger number of 70 tonne LTM 1070-4.2 and 90 tonne LTM 1090-4.2 four axle models which can run with 10 tonne axle loads.
Joint managing director Marcus Wittrock, said: “The LTC 1050-3.1 is perfect for jobs inside industrial buildings and also in constricted urban areas. We ordered all these cranes with an elevating cab to provide the crane operator with a better view of the site situation so as to enhance safety.”
Fellow managing director, Temmo Niekamp, added: “The company has a long term partnership with Liebherr. We feel that the company takes good care of us, their cranes are innovative and retain their value. What is more, we can rely on their after sales service at all times.”
Established by Klaus Wittrock and Hermann Ulferts as a logistics service provider for the heavy lifting sector in 1989, the company now runs a large fleet of All Terrain and crawler cranes, as well as aerial work platforms, telehandlers and heavy haulage vehicles. It is also a member of the System Lift association of independent rental companies, operating from locations in Oldenburg, Brake, Hamburg, Hollenstedt and Schwerin.
