Picked up in person: Poland’s first Liebherr Fibre Crane
The first ever tower crane with fibre rope for Poland: A 240 EC-B 10 Fibre has been dispatched and delivered to the Polish company Mazur Zurawie Sp. z o. o. Mazur and company representatives travelled to Liebherr-Werk Biberach GmbH in Germany specifically for this much-anticipated event.
The owner of the Polish crane hire company signed the purchase contract for the new Flat-Top crane with fibre rope at last year’s Bauma in Munich. When the agreed delivery date in January arrived, owner Krzystof Mazur and his managing directors Boguslaw Salwinski and Damian Oles travelled to Biberach to be there at the moment of loading.
When asked why he had opted for the fibre rope version of the crane, Mazur grins, “Because I wanted to be one of the firsts to own a Fibre Crane,” but then he also adds, “and because its performance fits in well with our fleet.”
The new EC-B crane complements his existing machines perfectly: The 240 EC-B 10 Fibre impresses with a ten-tonne maximum load capacity and a jib head lifting capacity of 2,850 kg at 65 metres. With the help of an additional jib extension, the crane can also achieve a radius of 68 metres. Mazur had already planned various jobs for his new Fibre Crane before taking it over.
Founded in 2002, the Polish company Mazur Zurawie Sp. z o. o is Poland’s largest privately owned crane hire provider with a fleet of around 190 cranes. Just last year, Mazur enjoyed another first when the company purchased a Liebherr 230 HC-L 8/16 Litronic – Poland’s first new crane in the luffing jib crane segment.
