Need to hire a crane?

Ever considered hiring a 100-tonne crane?

Here at Bryn Thomas Cranes, we provide the LTM 1100 – 5.2 and LTM 1090 – 4.2 from Liebherr, as well as the 100t Terex-AC-100.

To help you determine whether a 100t crane is right for your project, read on to find out more about the specifications of the revolutionary machines we have available to hire and what they can be used for.


Liebherr LTM 1100 – 5.2

The Liebherr LTM 1100 – 5.2 is one of the most compact 5-axle cranes in the world, offering state-of-the-art drive technology and active, speed-sensitive rear-axle steering.

This modern mobile crane is equipped with an adjustable telescopic boom that can reach 60m high – making it extremely flexible and economical to use.


What is the LTM 110 – 5.2 used for?

Thanks to its all-terrain chassis, the 100t crane can be used both on and off-road to lift heavy loads.

It’s often the crane of choice for construction projects in the city where space is limited. But, offering excellent reach capabilities, it can also be used for bridge building and solar power installations.


Liebherr LTM 1090 – 4.2

Something that makes this Liebherr 100t crane stand out is that it can be configured with a whole series of different axle loads, meaning it can be driven from one site to the next.

Other advantageous features of the LTM 1090 – 4.2 model include ECOdrive and ECOmode which help to reduce fuel consumption and noise emissions. This ultimately allows for a better driving experience and has minimal impact on the environment.

VarioBallast® and VarioBase® enhance capacity, safety and flexibility, too.


What is the LTM 1090 – 4.2 used for?

The Liebherr LTM 1090 is also known as the all-rounder that’s ready for anything.

From handling containers to recovering damaged, overturned or stuck vehicles and transporting construction materials, this 100t crane effectively combines mobility, performance and economy in a compact footprint.



The Terex-AC-100 is an all-terrain crane with a carrier length of 11m – making it the shortest 5-axle crane currently on the market.

All-terrain cranes, as such, are remarkably versatile and flexible. They can travel over the road and require little to no assembly on-site.

The 100t Terex-AC-100 has a hydraulic boom that expands and rotates. Meanwhile, the operator benefits from an air-conditioned ride, along with heated seats, safety glazing, adjustable steering and ergonomic controls in the cab.


What is the Terex-AC-100 used for?

The 100t Terex AC-100 is particularly useful for navigating tight spaces with ease.

It can manoeuvre over a wide range of terrains – and because these models are so versatile, they usually come in handy for construction, mining and agricultural applications where large, heavy loads need moving quickly, safely and with ease.
