LTM 1300/1 Schot & LTM 1500 Koekkoek (Mammoet).


Some weeks ago some 90t concrete beams had to be lifted into place. It was a project from Mammoet which placed on of there LTM 1500's with 135t counterweight.

Because Mammoet didn't had another crane free at the time they called Schot if they could come with their LTM 1300/1.

The first beam was transported with a truck from Vd Meijden.

Lifting of the beams went as follewed: First the LTM 1500 lifted one side of the beam of the dolly.

The truck drove backwards and the LTM 1500 directed the beam to the right direction.

This was done so the LTM 1300/1 could pick up the other side of the beam.

And to lay it into place both LTM's rotated.

Here the beam was layed on its foundation.

The second beam was placed with the last pieces of sunlight.

These two cranes only had one other lift together, lifting of a sanddregger. I guess it won't happen anymore aswell, the LTM 1300/1 will leave Schot in about a month and the LTM 1500 will get the Mammoet colours.


Other beams were transported by Mammoet and Vd Vlist.
