BMS takes delivery of first Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 mobile crane

2018.01.12 - admin

Ehingen / Donau (Germany) January 2018 – Danish crane and heavy haulage contractor BMS took delivery of the very first LTM 1090-4.2 in mid-December 2017. Liebherr first unveiled the 90-tonne crane in March of the same year at the Conexpo in Las Vegas. ...

...The new 4-axle crane is extremely flexible since it can travel with axle loads of 10 tonnes, 12 tonnes and 16 tonnes. It features a 60-metre telescopic boom, a whole 10 metres more than its predecessor, the LTM 1090-4.1.

  • The first model of the new LTM 1090-4.2 goes to Denmark
  • BMS impressed by the concept of the Liebherr 90-tonne crane
  • LTM 1090-4.2 can travel with axle loads of 10 tonnes, 12 tonnes and 16 tonnes

BMS will run the new LTM 1090-4.2 from its Aarhus site. Per Thorsen Christiansen, Managing Director in Aarhus, decided he could not miss the opportunity to travel to the manufacturing plant in Ehingen to take delivery of the new crane in person. He says, "When the concept and the technical highlights of the LTM 1090-4.2 were explained to me a few months ago, I decided I had to have the first one of this new model. I'm delighted that that decision has come to fruition today. The new 90-tonne crane from Liebherr impressed me immediately because it has a very long telescopic boom, is just 2.55 metres wide and can carry a great deal of ballast with an axle load of 12 tonnes. Furthermore, Liebherr has also integrated its VarioBallast® and VarioBase® innovations on this model."

The new LTM 1090-4.2 will replace a 4-axle LTM 1070-4.1 and will then be the smallest crane at the BMS site in Aarhus. Christiansen explains: "2 and 3-axle mobile cranes are not popular in our region. That is why our range starts with 4-axle models. We use our cranes 90 percent of the time for construction projects, for example for steel fabrication, the assembly of prefabricated concrete components or for installing reinforcement steel for concrete foundations. We have very little industry in Aarhus."
