International crane and transport company Mammoet has acquired a Liebherr LR 11000 crawler crane. The crane was presented at a handover presentation at the Bauma 2013 exhibition in Germany.

The LR 11000 has a 1,000 tonne lifting capacity, a maximum lifting height of 222 metres and a maximum radius of 160 m.

Features of the crawler also include the Power Boom system with a heavy luffing jib. The LR 11000 is prepared as standard for the P boom system, which has been taken from the 3,000 tonne capacity LR 13000 crawler.

The crawler operates with a maximum of 250 tonne slewing platform ballast, a 90 tonne central ballast and up to 450 tonne derrick ballast, which is fully adjustable. There is fall protection equipment and stacking supports for lattice sections.

Speaking on the purchase, Herman Smit, Mammoet COO, said, “The LR 11000 completes our fleet of Liebherr crawler cranes. We now have a Liebherr LR 1350, LR 1400, LR 1600, LR 1750, LR 11000, LR 11350 and the LR 13000.”
