LTM 1400-7.1 & LTM 1500 Boekestein
At the end of the summer I saw the two largest cranes from Boekestein in action. Some part for a new factory had to be lifted, it weighed around 110 tons.
The very nice LTM 1400-7.1 from Boekestein. Note the frame which can move the counterweight furtherbacks words and thus increasing the capacity with the same counterweight!
The LTM 1500 was aswell called in action.
Unfortunately I didn't had time to see the module up in the air. This is how it stood when I left.
When I got back the people from Boekestein were already done and were derigging the cranes.
The counterweight truck from the LTM 1500 is this 4 axle Mercedes Actros with a 6 axle Nooteboom highbed trailer.
This Scania 144G 460 would be loaded with lifting gear and counterweight of the 400 tonne crane.
The LTM 1500 was ready for transport.
And minutes later the crane came tearring down the road, back to the homebase in Maasland.
The LTM 1400-7.1 was ready aswell but stayed al little longer.
