A brand new Liebherr MK 88 mobile construction crane was delivered to the new site of BKL Baukran Logistik GmbH in Ingoldstadt. Site Manager Rainer Speich took delivery of the new taxi crane yesterday from Regional Sales Manager for Liebherr Mobile Construction Cranes Christian Schultze.

With the MK 88, Liebherr can now supply a compact four-axle model which provides massive load capacities and radius whilst being compact in size. With horizontal jib, the load capacity at the tip with a radius of 45.0 m is 1850 kg. With its extended load curve and additional ballast, the MK 88 Plus can hoist up to 2,200 kg at its tip.

"The MK 88 mobile construction crane enables us to provide our customer with outstanding features for many applications, particularly where handling speed and a large radius together with constricted conditions are required", said Site Manager Rainer Speich explaining his company's investment decision. "Moreover the Plus option with additional ballast increases its load capacity by around 10 percent, enabling loads of up to 3,000 kg to be hoisted even with a radius of 35 metres.

BKL Baukran Logistik opened its fourth site in June 2014. It means that the company now also has a presence in Ingolstadt in addition to its Munich, Frankfurt and Hanover sites. Currently BKL customers can select from six new Liebherr mobile cranes, an MK 88 Plus mobile construction crane with extended load curve and the company's own trucks.
