Darcy Pacheco Invests in Liebherr LTM 1500–8.1 Crane

    Darcy Pacheco Soluções de Peso, one of the most important cargo handling companies in Brazil, has invested in a new LTM 1500-8.1. The company has had an extremely positive experience with the Liebherr 500 tonne crane and is impressed with its reliability. The LTM 1500-8.1 is the most successful crane in its class. The large crane will tackle jobs in the industry, infrastructure projects, and the assembly of wind turbines for Darcy Pacheco.

    This is not the first Liebherr 500 tonnes of Darcy Pacheco. The company has experienced other LTM 1500-8.1, which were providing sterling service in its fleet. Eduardo Silva, Maintenance Director at the company, says:

    “We are very happy with our LTM 1500-8.1 cranes. As we are receiving increasing demand for this lifting capacity class, we made enquiries about another 500-tonne model. When it came to choosing the machine, in addition to capacity, the delivery time that Liebherr was able to offer was another positive”.

    The new LTM 1500-8.1 arrived in Brazil in November 2020. Its first job was at a major building site, involving expansion work at a paper factory. After completing this work, the 500-tonne crane is going to work in wind turbine assembly.

    Darcy Pacheco and Liebherr have a partnership dating back twenty years. Eduardo Silva continues: “We rely on Liebherr as its machines have excellent quality. In addition, Liebherr’s after-sales service here in Brazil is extraordinarily good”. Liebherr has technical-assistance well trained to support customers whenever needed, all over Brazil.
