Liebherr developing new MK 63

25 April 2008

At Liebherr-Werk Ehingen and Liebherr-Werk Biberach in Germany a new three-axle mobile folding construction crane, the MK 63, is under development.

The new unit, which will lift 8 tonnes and have a 35 m jib, will be the smallest in the MK range behind the four-axle MK 80 and the five-axle MK 100. Both these mobile folding tower cranes, or truck tower cranes, have a maximum capacity of 8 tonnes. The MK 100 lifts 1.6 tonnes at its maximum radius of 52 m. There is also an MK 110 version of the MK 100 with more on board counter- weight.

The existing models comprise a self-erecting tower crane from Biberach mounted on an Ehingen-built carrier.
