Liebherr to launch a pair of LTF truck mounts

25 April 2008

In June Liebherr-Werk Ehingen in Germany will unveil a pair of telescopic mobile cranes mounted on commercial truck chassis. Both the new 35 tonne capacity LTF 1035-3.1 and the 45 tonne capacity LTF 1045-4.1 use elements of the superstructure design from cranes in the LTM series of wheeled telescopic mobiles.

The LTF 1035-3.1, mounted on a three axle truck, has a superstructure developed from that on the two axle 35 tonne capacity LTM 1030-2.1 all terrain (30 m boom). The superstructure of the four axle LTF 1045-4.1 is developed from that of the new two axle LTM 1040-2 with 35 m boom. A difference from these two LTMs is that the LTFs have superstructure engines.

The extra axle on the LTF 1035-3.1 and the two extra axles on the LTF 1045-4.1 allow more counterweight to be carried than on the related LTMs. Maximum counterweight at 12 tonnes per axle on the LTF 1035-3.1 is 5 tonnes and on the LTF 1045-4.1 it is 9 tonnes as opposed to 2.3 tonnes on the LTM 1030-2.1 and 1.5 tonnes on the LTM 1040-2.
