Liebherr 1,000 tonne mobile now a 1,200 tonner

15 April 2008

The maximum lifting capacity of Liebherr's new flagship telescopic wheeled mobile has been increased from 1,000 to 1,200 tonnes.

First announced in November 2005 in IC, the LTM 11200-9.1 is the most powerful telescopic crane in the world. The nine axle giant is the first 1,200 tonne capacity mobile crane with a record 100 m telescopic boom. Maximum boom and jib combination gives a lift height of 170 m.

The Telematik boom consists of a base section and seven telescopic parts. A four-section “short” version is possible with the four inner sections dismounted. This allows a boom length of 55 m with a 3 m lattice head section.

Erection of two and three megawatt turbines is a target application. See the new crane on the Liebherr stand at the Bauma exhibition in Munich, Germany, late April.
