All invests in Liebherr AT cranes ahead of US debut
By Ian Vallely13 December 2016
The All family of companies has pre-ordered new Liebherr cranes currently unavailable in the United States, including two LTM 1450-8.1 450 tonne capacity all terrain cranes. The Liebherr Group plans to debut the LTM 1450-8.1 at the Conexpo-Con/Agg show in Las Vegas between 7 and 11 March 2017.
With a 279 foot (85 metre) telescopic main boom and a full range of lattice jib attachments, the crane is designed to accommodate a variety of transport weight and machine axle configurations, making it one of the most road-friendly eight-axle ATs on the market.
“This all terrain crane is unique, as it was designed for both ease of transport and minimal setup time, which increases efficiency before, during, and after the job,” said Hutton Strader, business development specialist at All.
“The new VarioBallast system also gives us the flexibility to have capacity when we need it, while still allowing us to work in spaces where many other large cranes simply will not fit. We see great potential for this machine to work on wind farms, refineries, and chemical plants, as well as in setting up tower cranes.”
