Marraffa announces the arrival of the new Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane, an imposing 700-ton machine that further enriches our high-end mobile crane fleet.
The Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 has extraordinary flexibility in road transfer. Thanks to its 8 axles, which differ from the 9 axles of previous models belonging to the same capacity class, this mobile crane guarantees greater agility and a reduction in the overall weight of the vehicle. Furthermore, the possibility of quickly disassembling various components helps to optimize transport operations.
The powerful 686 horsepower Liebherr engine, which powers both the undercarriage and the turret of the mobile crane, is combined with an automatic transmission with torque converter, ZF Traxon Torque, equipped with EcoDrive and EcoMode functions. This system always guarantees the right power to the axles of the mobile crane, which boasts a 16x8 traction.
The Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 joins the large Marraffa fleet made up of over 150 vehicles, including mobile cranes up to 700 tons, behind-the-cab cranes with drive and specific vehicles for exceptional transport. We also boast over 100 modular shaft lines (SPMTs) to tackle the toughest logistical challenges.
Michele Marraffa, CEO of the company, declared: "We are thrilled to announce this new entry in our fleet, which allows us to further strengthen our position as leader in the sector of large lifts and to guarantee ever more efficient services with machines at cutting-edge. It is important to underline that the machines alone are nothing without highly qualified and trained personnel. For this reason, we will continue to invest above all in internal training, to offer an impeccable service. Our priority remains that of always providing the best solution possible, by combining the excellence of our machines with the experience and skills of our operators".
Giovanni Marraffa, Project manager, commented: "The Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 represents an important addition to our high-end crane fleet. We are proud to offer our customers this new machine and will continue to work to keep up with the latest technologies and meet the ever-growing needs of the industry."
Pasquale Marraffa, Project manager, explained: "The arrival of this mobile crane allows us to face the most demanding logistical challenges even more effectively. Our large fleet allows us to provide customized and reliable solutions for our customers".
