Another new Liebherr

The parade of new cranes for Mammoet continues with this unit, just arrived yesterday on the ship Elektra. It was already on its flat car this morning and may well be on its way tonight.

The unit is a 6x6x6 (six wheel drive, six wheel steering) and is either a LTM 1050-3.1 (50 tonne at 3 m) or LTM 1055-3.2 (55 tonne at 2.5 m) The telescopic boom reaches 38 m or 40 m respectively, with a jib that extends 16m.

Some interesting details include the ladder stored under the cab, and the three overlapping windshield wipers.
