Seven crane order for Mexican crane and heavy transport company.

Mexican crane and heavy transport company ESEASA ordered five rough terrain cranes and two all-terrain cranes from Liebherr at Bauma.

The rough terrain order includes three new LRT 1130-2.1s and two LRT 1090-2.1s; the all terrain order includes one LTM 1120-4.1 and one LTM 1250-5.1.

The order follows one for five LRT 1090-2.1 and two LRT 1100- 2.1 rough terrain models in spring 2022.

ESEASA plans to use its new cranes primarily in the construction of new refineries. "We have been buying Liebherr cranes for a long time,” said Aldo Santos, operations director at ESEASA. “The units are sophisticated and retain their value very well. We appreciate the similar operating principle across all crane types. Liebherr's after-sales service is outstanding. That's why we decided to buy from Liebherr again.”

The new LRT 1130-2.1 rough terrain crane was one of the highlights on Liebherr’s stand at Bauma. The 130-tonne rough terrain crane was launched under the slogan ‘the toughest in the roughest’, with Liebherr claiming it offers very high lifting capacities and the longest telescopic boom of any two-axle all-terrain crane anywhere in the world.

It also has the most economical transport dimensions in its performance class, Liebherr adds.

"We chose the LRT 1130-2.1 because it has enormously strong load-bearing capacities and can still be easily transported on public roads," commented Santos.

When dimensioning the new LRT 1130-2.1, Liebherr focussed on economical mobility worldwide. Its width is 3.4 metres, its height 3.85 metres, and its chassis length 9.4 metres. The transport weight is 48 tonnes without counterweight, but with the folding jib and hook block. This can be reduced to 44.8 tonnes. These values are unique in the class of powerful two-axle rough terrain cranes, says Liebherr. A permit-free standard transport vehicle is sufficient for the 20-tonne counterweight and auxiliary equipment.
