BCS Crane Hire Ltd in Ireland has taken delivery of new Liebherr LTM 1230-5.1 crane. Adding the five axle wheeled mobile telescopic crane is part of the company’s ongoing programme of fleet renewal. All its cranes are Liebherrs.

Commenting on their new crane, BCS directors William and Ciaran Cussen, said, “The LTM 1230-5.1 is a great addition to our fleet. It is a very versatile machine and with the ever changing demands in the industry it will fit in perfectly.”

High specification
In addition to the VarioBallast and VarioBase Plus systems on the crane, the new BCS crane has got full radio remote control operation, plus a winch camera and one on the head of the boom to show the load and the immediate area around it.

Its eight-section boom is 75 metres long and there is an 11.5 to 20 metre bi-fold swing away hydraulic offset jib. Adding this to the main boom with all three seven-metre inserts gives a maximum height of 113 metres.
