Treffler, a 150-year-old traditional Munich-based company that has been part of the MAXIKraft Group since 2019, is strengthening and renewing its crane fleet with a Liebherr LTM 1350-6.1.

Branch manager Matthias Bulisch explains the procurement of the new 6-axle crane: “With the LTM 1350-6.1, we are replacing an LTM 1300-6.1. On the one hand, the investment in the new crane follows our rhythm for fleet renewal, and on the other hand, we are strengthening our portfolio. The new crane has a Y-type telescopic boom guying and is therefore significantly stronger than its predecessor.”

LTM 1350-6.1 offers wide range of applications

The LTM 1350-6.1 is Liebherr’s entry into the class of telescopic cranes with boom guying system. The spatial Y-guying – both to the rear and to the side – offers significant increases in load capacity, especially when the boom is extended long in a steep position and for jobs with lattice jibs.

“With the new crane, we can take on jobs in the 400-tonne class. We deliberately chose a 6-axle crane because it has advantages in approval processes, compared to 7- to 9-axle cranes,” Bulisch said. “We bought the LTM 1350-6.1 fully equipped. This means it can be used for a very wide range of applications, from concrete construction to industrial operations to construction crane assemblies.”

Treffler is already more than 150 years old. The company has been in the crane rental business since 1978. In addition to its main office in Munich, Treffler operates a site in Ingolstadt. A majority of the mobile cranes are from Liebherr. Bulisch explains: “Quality, value and service speak for Liebherr. But Liebherr mobile cranes have another important plus point: the same control from the smallest to the largest crane. This allows us to flexibly deploy our operators on different equipment.”
