In the annual renewal program launched recently, Ainscough Crane Hire has given a purchase commitment to the Liebherr brand. It has placed an order worth £30m with Liebherr GB for 37 new mobile cranes.
These purchase estimates will be enough to replace approximately 10% of its fleet with new models and maintain optimum age profile. The new cranes are beginning to arrive now in the UK and are expected to arrive by the end of the year.
Approximately 400 units are present with Ainscough already while its known as the largest mobile crane fleet in the UK. Last month it took delivery of the UK’s first LTM 1650-8.1 crane. This is the eight-axle, 650-tonne class crane under Liebherr’s new Stage V compliant.
Ainscough has also ordered a range of cranes ranging from two to five axles, from 40-tonne to 230-tonne class, all Stage V compliant. These include the LTM 1230-5.1, LTM 1110-5.1, LTM 1090-4.2, LTM 1060-3.1, and LTM 1040-2.1.
