Liebherr mobile crane LTM 1300-6.2 "Emil Egger" (Swiss / Härkingen)
The series of "EMIL EGGER" models from Herpa is still young. After the two Mercedes-Benz models (316835 curtainsider trailer and 317337 heavy haulage truck), this Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 now follows. All crane vehicles from the Swiss company are painted red in the otherwise green fleet. The Swiss family company has been in business for over 90 years. After giving up farming, Johann Egger somewhat reluctantly bought a timber and coal business. The "logistics" were still carried out with horses. In 1931, sons Hans and Emil Egger officially founded the pure logistics service provider "Gebrüder Egger". The first company was based in Heiligkreuz in St. Gallen. After the end of the Second World War, the company specialized in heavy and special transport in the mid-1950s. In the early 2000s, the 3rd generation joined the company. Eleven locations with around 800 employees are maintained in Switzerland today. The model appears in a one-off edition.
