Scottish rental company Whyte Crane Hire has taken delivery of four large Liebherr All Terrain cranes, a 500 tonne LTM 1500-8.1, a 130 tonne LTM 1130, and two 200 tonne LTM 1200-5.1s.

The eight axle LTM 1500-8.1 features a seven section 84 metre main boom plus Y Guy superlift system, and can be equipped with a 91 metre luffing jib or a 56 metre fixed jib. The five axle LTM 1130 features a 60 metre main boom plus a 33 metre bi-fold swing away extension, and comes with an elevating cab. The five axle LTM 1200-5.1 comes with a seven section 72 metre main boom and a 22 metre bi-fold swingaway extension.

Managing director Mark Syme said: "We are delighted to add an LTM 1500 to our fleet in line with the strategic decision to further expand our presence in the heavy crane hire sector. The improved diversity of our fleet means that we are able to offer our clients a solution for all of their lifting requirements and continues to position us favourably in the UK market. As always the backup we receive from Liebherr makes any further purchasing decision from the company an easy one."

Headquartered in Ellen near Aberdeen in east Scotland, Whyte Crane Hire has a fleet of 35 cranes with capacities ranging between 40 and 750 tonnes. The company has two more depots in Scotland, one in Montrose in the east and one in Grangemouth in the south.
