New Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 for Steil Kranarbeiten GmbH



Steil Kranarbeiten GmbH & Co. KG has bought a new Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1, which will expand the company’s mobile crane fleet.

Steil decided to buy the full range of equipment, including both boom versions: a 54m and an 80m telescopic boom, and the complete luffing jib.

“We have operated several Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 cranes for many years and have now invested in its successor,” said Birgit Steil, the owner of the company based in Trier.

“It is another 8-axle crane which has the same compact measurements with the H-outriggers. The lifting capacity values on the luffing jib are enormous.”

The LTM 1650-8.1 has a lifting capacity of 700 tonnes and is designed with an easily interchangeable boom, enabling operators to choose between a 54 or 80m.

Telescopic section 3, with its pulley head, is simply replaced with telescopic sections 3 to 5. The short boom reduces transport costs and erection time whilst the large boom is also available when required. The long boom configuration is ideal for jobs requiring a large radius. The two boom versions can also be fitted with a luffing jib.

Steil is planning to use the new LTM 1650-8.1 for jobs in industry, port handling and for wind power.

Steil Kranarbeiten GmbH & Co. KG has a workforce of over 300 and operates a diversified fleet of 115 cranes for regional crane services. The group operates throughout Europe in the wind power industry. In addition, it provides heavy haulage, recovery and towing, machine relocations and oil spill removal services. Its subsidiary Onroad provides crane relocation services throughout Europe.
