Liebherr is offering heavy lifting capabilities as well as versatility in a range of applications with its two latest crane designs, the LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane and the LR 1800-1.0 crawler crane.
The LTM 1650-8.1 is a high performance machine and replaces the highly successful LTM 1500-8.1 model. The new machine is offered in two versions with different telescopic booms of 54m and 80m, as with its predecessor.
The new eight-axle crane travels with an axle load of 12tonnes complete with its 54m telescopic boom and the front supports. To minimise set-up time, the rear supports are installed as complete support box in a single hoist and connected using quick-release couplings.
As with all new developments over the last few years, Liebherr can offer the LTM 1650-8.1 with a wide range of transport weights and axle load versions to ensure cost-effective global mobility for axle loads both above and below 12tonnes.
Meanwhile high lifting capacities and low cost transport around the world are the main features of Liebherr’s new 800 tonne capacity crawler crane. The LR 1800-1.0 is designed as a powerful crane when using a luffing jib and derrick system. For the first time, the boom system features lattice sections with three system dimensions which can be telescoped into each other for transport.
The new LR 1800-1.0 is 3m wide and is said to be particularly rigid as a result of its increased design height. A quick connection to raise the superstructure for transport is standard.
The new LR 1800-1.0 also features the derrick ballast with VarioTray – after raising the lattice boom with the large derrick ballast, part of the ballast can be unbolted quickly and easily.
