London, UK-based Emerson Crane Hire is embarking on a significant investment program to expand its fleet of cranes. As part of this several new Liebherr cranes will be added to its fleet in 2023. These include a 450t LTM 1450-8.1 with 7m fly jib and 24t of counterweight for operation in the UK. It will share the luffing jib from an earlier machine and comes equipped with Variobase, Varioballast, and a remote control.

Four other models, ranging from 60t to 110t, are also arriving, all with fly jibs, Variobase and remote controls.

In common with the rest of Emerson’s fleet the new additions will operate with bio-degradable hydraulic oil.

One of the first models Emerson took delivery of was an LTM 1060-3.1 which was displayed at the recent Vertikal Days exhibition in the UK. The other deliveries will continue until autumn 2023.

Emerson provides crane hire across London and the south with selected machines available for delivery nationwide. The fleet runs from 2.9t to 450t capacity.
